Before deciding if you want to terminate your contract, talk directly to your agent, as they may be able to allay your fears. If you are able to solve all the problems that arise, you may not have to stop. You should always pay the overhead of marketing and advertising, so talking with your agent could mean avoiding or paying a cancellation fee and choosing another real estate agent. You must warn the seller that he may pay two commissions if the buyer has been introduced by another agent or if he has an existing agency agreement that has not been terminated. The agreement also stated that the deadline for exclusive sales rights would begin with the signature or start date and that this would continue until the written notification (21 days of written communication). If you lose confidence in your realtor and want to try another agent, you can pay a cancellation or marketing fee. Most general agency agreements set the notice period. The notice period should allow the Agency to complete any introductions. The terms of sale of the agent clearly stated how the agreement could be terminated and the effect that a cancellation of the agreement would have on the seller`s liability to the commission. If the broker does not sell your property within 90 days of the agency and you wish to continue marketing with your agent, request an extension of the single agency in accordance with the existing agreement. This means that you adjust the end date of the Agency`s deadline, as defined in the agency`s initial agreement. On that date, do not sign a new agency agreement or bring the Agency into a general agency.
By extending the existing agreement beyond the first 90 days, you are positioning yourself as a seller in a much stronger position. You should recommend the best way to sell your property, for example by the tender price, the tender, the auction or the futures sale. The agreement defines how you agreed to sell and the marketing you have agreed with the Agency. Whether you are terminating an agency contract within the first 90 days or abroad, be especially careful if you plan to sign up with another agent. If a cancellation is not done correctly, there is a very good chance that you will owe a commission to two groups of agents. That is why independent legal advice is so important. If you want to terminate an agency contract, always seek advice from your lawyer. Your lawyer should be able to give you a guide to your particular situation. Similarly, advising a lawyer limits your financial risk. For this reason, lawyers have professional liability insurance. If you receive false advice and you are on the line of paying one or two commissions unexpectedly, you will have at least one lawsuit against your lawyer and you will eventually be able to recover some or possibly all of the money owed by your lawyer.
If an agency contract is terminated, your real estate agent must give you a written list of the names of potential buyers on which the broker would charge a commission if they came to purchase the property.
