After completing all the relevant information provided by both parties, the agreement is printed and signed by both parties. Keep copies of the agreement for the duration of the agreement, including a reasonable period of time. This agreement describes the expectations of both the client and the agent before the start of their agency relationship. Today, agencies have become the norm for businesses because they eliminate the burden of having to deal directly with certain topics. An agency contract therefore becomes an important document to understand when it comes to an agent who, over time, does business and makes decisions on your behalf. . . .
