Once the client and the recommended agent have been introduced, a recommendation agreement should be signed. This incurs and validates the referral fee, usually 25%, and all other terms of the agreement. This bulletin deals with the issue of receiving and/or paying intermediation fees to third parties who may not be directly involved in a real estate transaction. Depending on the specific situation, this cannot be permitted by the Real Estate and Business Brokers Act, 2002 (REBBA 2002) and, in other situations, written disclosure may be required.

In most states, the practice of agents paying referral fees or “Finder`s Fees” is illegal unless the person is a licensed real estate agent or attorney. A real estate recommendation agreement is used when an agent has a client whom he wishes to refer to another agent for a fee. This is most often when a client requests services outside the agent`s jurisdiction or when they request real estate services that the agent does not offer. A real estate recommendation contract is concluded between two (2) agents in which a client is advised by a broker to use another broker, in exchange for a fee, more adapted to his needs. This is common when a client wants to buy, sell or rent real estate outside the jurisdiction of an agent. In addition, brokers can set their own additional policies and rules for their employees regarding the receipt of referral fees. Whenever an agent sends a customer to another agent, he or she must ask for a mutual agreement. A reciprocal agreement requires the two agents to refer clients to each other for certain situations. A real estate recommendation tax is usually paid immediately after the closure of the client`s property.
The intermediation fee corresponds to the percentage (%) of the net commission paid to the promoted real estate agency. The registered broker should send a payment request via the real estate commission invoice. For example, two (2) agents, one (1) serving San Francisco and the other (1) serving Los Angeles, enter into a reciprocal agreement that if they find a customer in each other`s market, they agree to report to each other. 25% is the national average amount of transfer fees (Zillow). Compensation in the form of a commission reduction, discount or other incentive is only allowed to one person in respect of the transaction in which he participates.
