If there is no written agency agreement or if there is a written agreement, but it does not contain a termination clause, the contract may be terminated by both parties with a “reasonable termination.” If the agreement is not subject to the regulations of commercial agents and the notice has not been agreed in advance, there is talk of an “appropriate termination”. This requires independent legal advice from a business lawyer. For agreements subject to regulations, regulations establish appropriate communication. You can waive your right to a cooling-off period or waive it by signing a separate waiver form when the agreement is signed. You should recommend that the seller obtain his own legal advice and give him a reasonable period of time before signing the agency contract. If a clientele and/or territory have been assigned to the sales agent, this is only the case, unless it has been expressly agreed that this was not the case (Article 7:431, paragraph 1, point c) of the Dutch Civil Code). Therefore, it is important (from the client`s point of view) to explicitly declare in an agency agreement that there is no exclusivity. You must provide the Seller with a copy of the New Zealand Residential Property Agency Agreement Guide[PDF, 2.2 MB] [PDF, 2.2 MB] before signing the agreement and asking the Seller to confirm in writing that he has received it. If an agency agreement is terminated, you must tell the seller the names of all potential buyers you have submitted to the property and inform the seller that if one of these potential buyers buys the property, it may entitle you to a commission. Are you thinking about online advertising for your business? If so, you probably run into the complex and lengthy online advertising agreement of the host of the site. Make sure you understand before you agree. An agency agreement is an agreement in which the client (the manufacturer/customer) orders the sales agent and obliges the client to provide intermediary services for a specified or indeterminate period and for a fee when the contract is concluded and to enter into these services on behalf of and on behalf of the client, without being subject to the contracting authority (Article 7:428 of the Dutch Civil Code). The agent is therefore, on behalf of the client, responsible for drafting the contract and receives a commission to do so.
The legal relationship between the client and the sales agent is usually established in an agency agreement. Establishing an agency contract is a very important job. An example of an agency agreement is a recruitment in which a superior authorizes a workforce to carry out a particular project. It is possible to draw up an agreement explaining the various tasks of the agent. You may be contacted by a supplier who wishes to sign a single agency contract with you, while he has an exclusive agency agreement existing with another agency. We advise you not to accept this creditor as a customer until the end of the existing agreement. The cooling-off period gives you time to read the agreement, consider the conditions you have agreed to, including the agent`s expenses, and get independent advice if you have any doubts. You must provide a statement on the discounts, rebates or commissions you receive and indicate the amount. You are not entitled to a creditor`s expenses if this information is not included in the agency agreement. Agency agreements can be entered into if you ask a seller, accountant, lawyer or other third party to make transactions on your behalf.
