Cancellation Of The Agency Agreement

If an agency contract is terminated, you must tell the seller the names of all potential buyers you have introduced into the property and inform the seller that if one of these potential buyers buys the property, this may result in you being entitled to a commission. Under section 131(1) of the Real EstateAgent Act 2008, sole agent contracts longer than 90 days may be terminated at any time by written notice to the broker. Most agencies know this. This is the reason why the agreement is almost always transformed into a general agency at the end of the agency`s initial period. The agreement then has separate terms that apply as soon as the agreement becomes a general agency. Why is this important? If you extend the initial individual representation beyond 90 days, this means that you can unilaterally terminate the agreement at any time from the 91st day. If you enter the contract into a general agency, you may find that you must declare notice (usually 14 days in writing) to terminate the contract, which means that the contract actually lasts at least 104 days if it is terminated as soon as it becomes a general agency. It should also be noted that an agent`s right to compensation or compensation is not applicable, unless the agent informs his principle, within one year from the date of termination, that he intends to pursue his rights.
