 Understanding the Role of Transaction Coordinator

Assume that a friend of yours calls and asks you to assist him on the sale of his cabin to his neighbor. Since he already has a buyer, he does not need to list the property, but he does need help putting the transaction together and getting the sale closed. For many Realtors®, the difficult question here is not how to put the deal together, but rather in what capacity the Realtor® should serve.

Obviously, the friend does not need a traditional listing agent, but should the Realtor® set up some type of agency relationship with the seller? Or should the Realtor® act as a transaction coordinator? Can the Realtor® charge for his/her services? As will be discussed below, while in this scenario it is certainly possible for the Realtor® to help his friend (and get paid for his work), because of its limitations, a transaction coordinator role may not be the best choice.

Legal Lines – Question of the Month

With the help of McClelland & Anderson, we are taking the most recently asked questions from our legal hotline and putting them in E-news. We will be featuring a different question each issue.

QUESTION:
My seller bought a house at sheriff’s sale. Now that the redemption period has expired, he has decided to list it for sale. Is he exempt from the Seller Disclosure Act?

ANSWER:
NO. The foreclosure exemption from the Seller Disclosure Act applies only if the lender acquires the property through foreclosure and not to third‑party purchasers.
