What is a Business Broker Listing Agreement
A business agreement is a contract between the businessman and the advisor. Under the contract, the advisor or the broker has the complete right to disclose the details of the business to a third party for sale.
The duty of the advisor is to help the businessman buy or sell a business. The business gives the right to access the details of a business to the advisor.
Once the advisor gets all the details he/she lists this on the business listing agreement. The details are displayed to the potential buyers and sellers of the industry.
The advisors conduct meetings with the potential buyers and sellers and close the deal. By doing so, a seller can sell his business and a buyer can buy a potential business.
The main role of a broker is to be a mediator between the potential buyer and seller. The advisor takes the authority from the businessman to represent his/her business.
The contract gives the advisor the right to represent the business on the tycoon’s behalf.
Once the business is bought or sold the contract ends right away. The business is then removed from the listing agreement.
The agreement specifies the terms and conditions of the contract. Once the advisor is successful in selling or buying a business, he/she becomes liable for a commission.
The rate of commission is decided in advance. This is also mentioned in the business contract. Once the business buyer or the seller settles the commission part with the advisor the contract ends there.
How Long is the Listing Agreement for?
The business broker listing agreement can last for 6 months to 2 years. During this period the advisor finds the potential buyer or the seller and closes the deal.
The closing of the deal also takes some time but it is usually closed within the mentioned period.
The lasting period of the agreement also depends on the type of agreement signed between the buyer/seller and the advisor. The agreement is divided into 2 types.
Exclusive agreements: This is a type of agreement that is exclusive in nature. Under this agreement, the buying or selling contract is exclusively given to a broker. The businessman/businesswoman cannot give the buying/selling contract to another broker. The agreement is for a stipulated period. Under this agreement, the broker is liable to receive the commission even if the businessman finds the party.
This is the main advantage of exclusive agreements. No matter who finds the party the commission of the broker is fixed.
Non-exclusive agreements: This is a type of agreement that is non-exclusive in nature. Under this agreement, the buyer/seller is not confined to a single broker. He/she can go to multiple brokers at the same time and sign the contract. The broker who finds the party first gets the commission. The other brokers who have not found the party are not liable for any commission.
Majorly this type of agreement is not entertained by the brokers as the other brokers do not get any commission even after investing time. This agreement is usually signed when the worth of a business is huge. For example: If a business is for 500 million then the brokers do accept the non-exclusive agreements. The period for both the agreements last from 6 months – 2 years.
