A: Our commission purchase agreement provides for your brokerage to remit to us the Purchased Commission after closing by Electronic Funds Transfer. If your brokerage is not able to remit payment by Electronic Funds Transfer OR Direct Deposit, we will accept a cheque payment. We will collect this cheque by courier and a courier fee will apply.
Q: What happens if the closing date on my deal is extended?
A: It is very important that you advise us of any changes in closing on a very timely basis. We will evaluate the reasons and background to the closing extension, and require a copy of a valid executed extension. If at our discretion we are satisfied with the extension, we will extend the Payment Due Date to coincide with the new closing date. An additional charge, which we call an Extension Payment will be levied. If we do not accept the extended closing date the Payment Due Date will remain as per the Commission Purchase Agreement.
Q: What happens if my deal does not close?
A: Whilst most sales do go through, we recognize that a sale may fall through. Our commission purchase agreement provides for this. You can repay the Payment obligations to us. We do however understand that you may not be in a situation to repay these Payment obligations and we are here to work with you to ensure you are still able to run your business (provided you are fully co-operative with us). We establish a payment plan that will provide for a repayment of all Payment obligations over a three month period through interim payments and/or applying future commissions.
Q: Is my brokerage liable if my sale falls through?
A: No – Our Commission Purchase Agreement disclaims the brokerage in the event the Property Sale falls through; or your brokerage does not collect your commissions; or there is a shortfall in the commissions.
