BCREA has launched two new toolkits in the Standard Forms Resource Centre to help REALTORS® navigate dual agency scenarios. The toolkits cover the Limited Dual Agency Agreement (Competing Buyers/Tenants) and the Limited Dual Agency Agreement (Buyer/Tenant and Seller/Landlord). Each of the toolkits include an introduction to the form, FAQs, an annotated version of the form, an interactive How-To-Complete guide and Business Practice Considerations/Guidance.
Why these toolkits were created
Dual agency is not allowed under the Real Estate Rules, except in some very limited circumstances, which makes it all the more important that Realtors can advise consumers with confidence on the ins and outs of such relationships. The Limited Dual Agency Agreement (Competing Buyers/Tenants) and the Limited Dual Agency Agreement (Buyer/Tenant and Seller/Landlord) standard forms were created to ensure Realtors have informed consent from all parties involved prior to providing services under dual agency. The new toolkits are designed to give Realtors an in-depth understanding of how to work with these standard forms.
In particular, these toolkits answer questions like:
- How do I determine if a transaction is exempt from dual agency restrictions? and
- Why do I need a limited dual agency agreement if I’ve completed a Disclosure of Risks Associated with Dual Agency?
