10+ Sub Agency Agreement Templates in PDF | WORD

A sub-agency agreement is made between the participants who are participating in a sub-agency that refers to a specific client representation relationship. The participants include a property listing broker or a real estate agent or and another real estate broker or an agent who brings in a buyer to purchase the property. In a sub-agency agreement, the agent actually works for the seller as a subagent of the listing broker. This is important because the agent actually owes the duties of a guardian to the seller and not the buyer.

How to Set Up for Success When Bringing on a New Sub-Agent?

Here are some important points to consider when bringing on a new sub-agent to your agency team:

  1. Get knowledge about the rules of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), as it applies to an independent contractor or a sub-agent versus an employee or an assistant before you begin: these may include questions like- what, where, when, and how.
  2. Know what your sub-agent standards are. Make sure you describe those requirements in advance and writing.
  3. Try to identify your ideal sub-agents’ key features and ask questions that will fill out these ideal attributes in your interview process.
  4. You can ask questions like do you want someone who is experienced or completely new to the travel industry? Or ask if they are looking to expand products along with the areas of specialization that the potential agent has.

Who is a Sub-Agent?

The term sub-agency is often referred to as a brokerage relationship. A characteristic of the sub-agency is that the selling firm, with the seller’s approval, expanded its agency partnership with the seller outside the company’s agents. It also allowed other partnering brokerage firms to represent the seller in a deal. The other cooperating broker will become a “sub-agent” of the listing broker when this occurs.

A sub-agent can be considered as an immovable contractor that provides a buyer with real estate services when representing the seller in a real estate transaction. To become a sub-agent, an agent must function for a company separate from the listing agent.

Who Represents the Buyer?

A sub-agent is generally not represented by any of the real-estate licensees that are involved in the transaction when a buyer is working with them. The buyer remains unrepresented in the real-estate dealing while the seller is represented by both the listing agent and sub-agent.

Does the Seller Have to Agree to the Sub-Agency?

Yes. Relationships between the agencies are consensual and require the informed consent of the principal i.e. the seller. Until taking the sale, the listing agent must discuss sub-agency with the sellers to determine whether or not the seller will consent to sub-agency. Agents must consult their brokers on the policies of their company to deliver and approve sub-agency offers.

Does the Seller Have to Agree to Sub-Agency?

Yes. Even if the sub-agent does not represent the client, the applicant still has to negotiate the relationships with the agency as required by state law. The buyer may refuse to work with a sub-agent if, under a buyer agency or non-agency i.e. any transaction brokerage arrangement, he or she chooses to work with a real estate licensee.

Lack of disclosure of the representational relationship between the sub-agents and the seller to the buyer can establish the potential for an unknown dual agency that violates state law. One major factor in the decline of the sub-agency was the dramatic rise in the number of purchasers’ lawsuits over the secret dual agency.

Why is Sub-Agency Important?

Even though sub-agencies are rarely used by the real estate brokerage firms, its discussion is considered to be quite important. Most realtors misinterpret the definition of the word “sub-agency.” While reviewing the listing agreement, those agents who do not understand the term can not properly explain this to a seller.

A few selling agents wrongly advised their customers that “sub-agency” is the commission’s share of listing firms while “buyer-agency” is the commission’s share of buyer brokers.

The Current State of Sub-Agencies in the Industry

Real estate laws are state-specific, and clusters with various legislation and procedures exist. As an example, in some places, attorneys are still closing transactions. Most of what follows, however, explains how the method operates in many states today.

The sub-agency simply no longer does much. The selling broker does not serve as the seller’s agent, and the buyer is not covered by someone with the seller’s duties. Here are some of the representational variants.

Nearly all states require some form of documentation of how you, as an agent, can represent them in their real estate transaction to the client or prospective client. Make sure you understand the laws of your state and the different ways you can be reflective of the company. Your roles and responsibilities towards the client can vary considerably depending on the type of representation you have agreed to contractually.
