Commercial Real Estate Tenant Representation Agreement

- December 05, 2020

The brokerage contract will likely also include a “tail” at the end of the term. The “tail” is a period during which the broker or brokerage company receives payment for the broker`s negotiations with the owners during the term of the contract. If the tail cannot be removed, it must be cut tightly. Online viewing of offers can be difficult if the information is outdated or incomplete. A client has many resources to solve these problems and find the best option for you. All businesses have risks of economic cycles and uncertainty. Acquisition Consultants ensures that our clients limit their exposure. When buying, Acquisition Consultants works diligently to ensure a price that should withstand market fluctuations if our customers` needs change. If you leasing, acquisition consultants aims to negotiate prices, extension rights, termination rights and options that allow our clients to remain flexible on the evolution of their business. We believe that flexibility is one of the most important components for our clients, as it relates to their needs in commercial real estate. Two of the most critical points that need to be tightly cropped are the length of the tail and which can be considered a party for which the broker is entitled to credit.

This last point can be particularly controversial, with debates on whether all mediation contacts should be allowed in the context of the queue, or only the contacts with which negotiations are conducted, or somewhere in between. The definition of negotiations is highly contested. The tenant obviously wants the negotiations to be defined more broadly than the broker wants to reduce the number of landlords who are subject to the queue. Whatever the outcome of the negotiations, the brokerage contract should be developed so that the broker, at the beginning of the queue, provides the tenant with a name list for which the queue applies, in order to avoid unnecessary potential litigation. Hiring a buyer/tenant representative can help solve this problem in two ways: these agreements are the first step to really making progress with a real estate search or negotiation. They usually create a fiduciary relationship between the buyer/tenant and their brokerage agent. Among the general elements you will find in these agreements are: ` names of the parties involved` – scope of research (type of ownership, geographic area or specific property) – Identification of relationship and potential conflicts of interest – extent of services and what is not included – Protection from non-discrimination – Expectations for agent compensation – All applicable retentions – Duration of the agreement – Brokerage and client signatures They are usually presented on standard status or brokerage association forms.
