The importance of a brokerage contract

A real estate broker1 helps facilitate the sale, sometimes acting as an agent for both the buyer and the seller. This agency relationship is extremely important, as it creates a fiduciary duty in the broker to the buyer or seller, depending on the situation. Additionally, a real estate broker is also working for a commission payment following a successful real estate deal. All of these issues should be addressed with proper guidelines set out in the brokerage business contract.

Because this contract is important, all parties involved should always make sure that all of the terms of the contract are fair and protect their rights. At the Dickson Frohlich Phillips Burgess, we can help brokers draft a quality contract that will be valid and enforceable should a dispute later arise. Additionally, we can thoroughly review brokerage contracts for real estate buyers and sellers to make sure a broker is not attempting to include any unfair terms.

Settling brokerage business contract disputes

Like any type of contract, there is the potential that a dispute may arise regarding commission, fiduciary duty, or other provisions of the agreement. We can assist you in efficiently resolving any disputes, whether or not the contract has a dispute resolution clause2.
