LEGAL Q&A | Broker-to-Builder Referral Agreement
QUESTION: I have a buyer agency agreement with some clients who are looking to build a custom home. They recently found some vacant land they want to purchase and are ready to meet with some builders who can design and build their custom home. I spoke to one of those builders and discussed how I might be compensated for referring my clients to him. If I can come to an agreement with the builder, is there a form I can use to confirm our fee arrangement?
