Document Description

The Listing Agreement is a document that is entered into between the Owner and the Broker for the purpose of granting the Broker the sole and exclusive right to lease and receipt for deposit in connection with a specific property. The agreement outlines the terms and conditions of the lease, including the lease terms, brokerage fee, commission schedule, agency/dual agency, and other important provisions.


The agreement begins with an introduction, stating the parties involved in the agreement, namely the Owner and the Broker. It also specifies the principal place of business for each party. The agreement then goes on to describe the property that is being leased, providing a detailed description of its location and other relevant details.


The lease terms section of the agreement explains that the Owner will pay a brokerage fee, also known as the leasing commission, to the Broker for listing and leasing the property. The commission schedule is provided, which outlines the calculation of the leasing commission based on the total gross rentals due and the highest monthly rental payment amount. The agreement also mentions that if another broker procures the tenant, no commission will be paid to the Broker.


The agreement further discusses the minimum leasing commission, which is the minimum amount that the Owner will pay to the Broker regardless of the total gross rentals due. It states that if another broker procures the tenant, no minimum leasing commission will be paid to the Broker.


The payment terms are outlined, stating that the commissions are due and payable in two installments: one-half on lease execution and payment of the deposit, and one-half on occupancy. The agreement also mentions that in the event of legal action to enforce the agreement, the Broker will be responsible for paying attorney's fees and legal costs.


The agreement includes provisions regarding agency and dual agency. It authorizes the Broker to appoint other salespersons affiliated with the Broker as sub-brokers to act on the Owner's behalf. It also allows the Broker to enter into cooperative brokerage agreements. The agreement states that if the property is leased to a lessee represented by one of the Broker's salespersons other than the listing broker, the Broker will act as a dual agent. It also mentions that if the property is leased to a lessee who the listing broker also represents, both the listing broker and the Broker will act as dual agents.


The agreement grants the Broker permission to show the property and place signs on it. It specifies the hours and days during which the property can be shown and states that the Broker's signs will be the only leasing signs on the property. The agreement also includes a provision for the continuation of the agreement on a month-to-month basis after the expiration date, unless terminated by either party with thirty days' written notice.


The agreement concludes with a section for the parties to sign, acknowledging their receipt of a copy of the agreement and their approval of its contents.
