2726. Broker-Salesman Relationship Agreements

Mike Burroughs

We have already mentioned that you will be a real estate seller or broker when you start. And to get your license, you must have filed with a broker. This broker will sponsor your license and your license will still have to be held by a broker while you are a practicing seller. While it is customary to say that you work for your broker, it is a little more accurate to say that you work under your broker, because, while it can often seem that your broker is your boss, you are actually an independent contractor and not an employee of the broker or agency for which you work. In another lesson, we will discuss what it means to be an independent contractor, but to understand how real estate agents and sellers are paid, it is important to understand the basics of this relationship. As a seller, you also have additional tasks, including paying for your own expenses, such as travel and deliveries. A broker may choose to pay for advertising for customers or the business, as well as office overhead, but the expenses you make, including the cost of the things you use to build relationships with the customer and attract customers, are your responsibility. A salesperson is also responsible for all his own memberships and training. While a broker will generally buy MLS for the entire office if you wish to join the National Association of Realtors, you must pay your own fees as well as licensing and teaching fees.

One day, even the best will end. Depending on the state in which you live, termination of employee status is subject to different rules. With an independent contractor, it is usually quite simple to end the relationship. Both the real estate agent and the seller have the right to terminate their relationship at any time. There is no reason to say. In the agreement, there should be a clause stipulating logistics in order to make this separation as simple as possible. It is likely that this section will indicate the amount of written notification to be given to formally denounce the agreement, as well as the procedure to be followed to determine whether an additional commission is due to the seller and how it should be paid. Here are some of the functions that are important when talking about independent contractor agreements. Brokers must have written agreements with each seller. Regulation 2726 of the Commissioner stipulates that the agreement covers the essential aspects of the relationship, including control of licensed activities, the seller`s obligations and compensation.

Since there are not so many rules that define the different aspects of a relationship within a non-situationally contracting, it is extremely important to take the time to carefully define what the independent contractor is, who the client is and what each expects from each other. In a general independent contractor situation, the independent contractor is mandated by his client, but, as we have already discussed, in real estate, this is not the typical independent contractor relationship. The agent who works with the agent is not the same as a client, and he is not the same as a boss who is subject to all labor laws. It is easy to navigate a complex and confusing relationship through a clear independent contractor agreement, which would otherwise be possible through a complex and confusing relationship. The agreement will not only indicate what the seller can and cannot do to ensure that he retains his status as an independent contractor, but also the expectations of both parties.
