Signing a Buyer Representation Agreement in Alberta
On July 1, 2014, the Real Estate Council of Alberta made a Written Service Agreement (often referred to as a “Buyer Representation Agreement”) between a REALTOR® and a client mandatory across Alberta. Much like a contract when you sell your home, a Buyer Representation Agreement clearly outlines the obligations and responsibilities of a REALTOR® and the client. This agreement increases the professionalism of our industry by outlining expectations and obligations, and encourages a better working relationship between client and REALTOR®.
