Legal Q&A | Can language regarding payment of my brokerage fee be added to an offer?
QUESTION: I am representing a buyer who is very interested in making an offer on a “FSBO” property. I presented an Unrepresented Seller Disclosure and Fee Agreement (Form 150) to the owner, but she is unwilling to sign it because she doesn’t want to pay my firm a fee if my client purchases her property. I explained to my buyer that if the seller is unwilling to pay the fee, he will have to pay me himself if wants to buy the property. He still wants to make an offer and has requested that language be added to the Offer to Purchase and Contract that would make the seller responsible for paying my firm’s fee. Is that permissible?
