Legal Lines – Question of the Month
-
We are pleased to partner with McClelland & Anderson to feature a different question from our legal hotline in each issue of E-news.

QUESTION:
I received an offer through a buyer’s agent who participates in my MLS but who never showed the property to his buyers. It turns out that his clients contacted the sellers directly and arranged a showing without a licensee present. The buyers then contacted the buyers’ agent and asked him to write up an offer. Do I have to pay the buyers’ agent commission if he did not show the house?

ANSWER:
YES. An offer of compensation through an MLS does not require that the agent bringing the buyer show the buyer the house. An agent may qualify as procuring cause even if he or she did not show the house to the buyers.
