Sole Agency Letting Agreement

The fee is due immediately and payable if a tenant has a rental agreement with the owner at the time. It is agreed that Express Let Limited has deducted these due costs from the rents recovered. In the event that a local authority requests partial or full reimbursement of Express Let Limited`s housing allowance and the requested funds have been transferred to the owner, I hereby acknowledge that I/we (the owner) is responsible for returning all funds to the agent without any deduction and immediately. If the property were to be sold at any time to the tenant introduced by Express Let Limited, the landlord will be liable for a six-month loss of commission as compensation If the landlord has problems with the agent at any given time, it is only right that he should have the opportunity to address such issues. And it is fair to expect that they will be resolved, or that the owner will express his dissatisfaction by resilising his contract. And why not? So, an indication of caution to owners – look carefully at the fine print if you are looking for a rental agent. The devil is always in the details. Imagine you`re on an agency contract with Agent A. You were not satisfied with your service, so you resigned, announced your 2-week notice and disappeared. This is an agreement in which a single real estate agent is responsible for marketing a property for sale. The agent is only entitled to his fees if he negotiates with the prospective buyer or (if the contract allows it) while the agent`s agreement is in force. The agent`s terms and conditions clearly state that he can calculate his commission when a buyer has been introduced during the period of the single sales rights.

The fee is due immediately and payable if a tenant has a rental agreement with the landlord. The landlord is billed separately and follows each month, until the end of the lease, the commission is deducted from the monthly rent (gross) and paid into the lessor`s bank account. In the event that a local authority requests partial or full reimbursement of RPM`s housing allowance and the requested funds have been transferred to the owner, I/We (the owner) assume responsibility for the immediate reimbursement of all funds to the agent without any deduction. Where an agent is mandated under an exclusive sales rights agreement, only that agent may market the business for sale for the duration of the period of the exclusive sales rights. It is of course quite possible that an exclusive sales contract is terminated and a seller then orders a new real estate agent to market the property for sale. However, depending on the wording of the original contract, the original agent may still be entitled to a fee if he entered into or conducted negotiations with the subsequent purchaser, while his exclusive contract of right of sale was in force, even if it could be said that the new agent proceeded with the actual introduction. Assuming the former agent made an effective introduction, it doesn`t matter if it turned out to be the actual introduction [Dashwood v Foils]. Factotum would always support transparency of the pros and cons of individual representation and flexibility in the best interest of the owner. . . .
