17. AGENCY DISCLOSURE INFORMATION IF THE BROKER REPRESENTS THE OWNER: The broker
becomes the owner's agent by entering into an agreement with the owner, usually
through a written listing agreement, or by agreeing to act as a subagent by accepting
an offer of subagency from the listing broker. A subagent is able to work in a different
real estate office. A listing broker or subagent can assist the buyer, but does
not represent the buyer and must place the interests of the owner first. The buyer
should not tell the owner's agent anything the buyer would not want the owner to
know because an owner’s agent must disclose to the owner any material information
known to the agent.
IF THE BROKER REPRESENTS THE BUYER:
The broker becomes the buyer's agent by entering into an agreement to represent
the buyer, usually through a written buyer representation agreement. A buyer's agent
can assist the owner but does not represent the owner and must place the interests
of the buyer first. The owner should not tell a buyer's agent anything the owner
would not want the buyer to know because a buyer's agent must disclose to the buyer
any material information known to the agent.
IF THE BROKER ACTS AS A DUAL AGENT IN CALIFORNIA:
In a dual agency, the broker represents both buyer and seller in the same transaction.
In the real estate industry, even if one salesperson in an office is working with
a buyer and another salesperson in the same office is working with the seller, the
broker of the real estate firm is considered a dual agent.
A broker who acts as a dual agent in a transaction:
(a) shall treat all parties with honesty;
(b) may not reveal that the owner will accept a price less than the asking price
unless authorized in writing to do so by the owner;
(c) may not reveal that the buyer will pay a price greater than the price submitted
in a written offer unless given permission in writing to do so by the buyer; and
(d) may not reveal any confidential information or any information that a party
specifically instructs the broker in writing not to disclose unless given permission
in writing to reveal the information or required to do so by State or Federal law
or a court order or if the information materially relates to the condition of the
