The TAR buyer/tenant representation agreement contains a language stipulating that the broker will attempt to obtain payment of brokerage fees from the seller, lessor or agent, but provides that if the buying agent does not receive all or one of the declared commissions from these sources, the buyer/tenant is required to pay that commission (or the difference indicated in the contract and the amount paid by the seller, the lessle). This provision may also have entered into a tax right by a buyer who purchased a home during the duration of the agreement with another agent to complete the purchase in violation of the buyer`s agreement to use the broker in the buyer`s representation agreement. Brokers should clearly explain the buyer`s potential fee obligations, in accordance with this paragraph of the agreement, when they first submit the representation agreement to the purchaser at the signing. The clarity of the rights and obligations of the parties in the brokerage/client relationship is one of the main reasons for a written brokerage agreement. I was the listing agent for a property that was not sold but was listed by another broker at the expiry of my agreement. I now have a client who wants to see the same property. Should the new broker or real estate agent designate me as a named licensee, or how else can I do anything else? Even if you are unable or decide not to fill out this form during your first meeting with your new clients, make sure they complete a document on brokerage services, as this is a request from the Texas Real Estate Commission. Follow this document signing order so that you have the seller`s written consent to pay your fees before the parties sign a contract: 2.
Give the seller the brokerage services information form (TAR 2501, TREC OP-K) and discuss the agency relationships related to that purchase.
