Legal Q&A | How do I document a referral fee agreement with a builder?

QUESTION: I am working with a buyer client under the Exclusive Buyer Agency Agreement (Form 201). She is interested in purchasing a lot in a development and hiring a builder to construct a house on the lot. I have helped her identify the lot on which she wants to make an offer and a builder she would like to hire to build the house after she closes on the lot. If she buys the lot and hires the builder, I will be paid a commission on the lot sale by the listing agent and a referral fee by the builder. My question is, do I need any forms other than the Buyer Agency Agreement to cover this situation? Discover the answer »
