I agree that you need to look at Section 8-E of the Independent Contractor Agreement. Note that this section is rather vague in time frames. The section reads that payment should be "immediately or soon thereafter as possible." It all talks that there are additional contract riders or addendums which could be added by the broker. Our brokerage for instance has different exhibits that are attached to the ICA to discuss issues not found in it. It follows then that you would review your ICA and any other documents you signed when you joined the brokerage. Hope this helps.... more

The only "must pays" are existing loans and interest, taxes, liens and judgments. Everything else is negotiable. Granted you will have a hard time finding a good Realtor to work for free, but nothing dictates that you have to use a Realtor. There are "typical" seller expenses but in the case of many Bank Owner properties and short sales, we are seeing the banks not willing to pay any of the typical associated seller costs.
If the house is not bank owned or a short sale, the seller should consider all the seller contribution requests made by the buyer and factor those into their decision. If you have a specific scenario in mind and are not under a listing agreement currently, I would be happy to discuss your situation with you at no cost and with no obligation. Thanks and good luck in the sale of your home.
