Broker/Seller contract will bring clarity and consistency to the sales process

The introduction of the RERA standard Seller/ Broker contract template will assist all parties by bringing clarity and consistency to the sales process, which will ultimately improve trust and confidence in the sector.

The Seller /Broker contract was developed following consultation with key stakeholders, including brokers, sales agents, buyers and sellers of real estate.

Utilisation of this contract is not mandatory however it is anticipated that the introduction of this standard contract template will be to the benefit of all stakeholders, particularly those engaging in the straightforward sales of single unit properties such as an apartment or villa.
