How To Break A Buyer's Representation Agreement
Q: How do I break my buyer's representation agreement (BRA)?
A: The quickest answer? Don't sign one! Haha.
Seriously, though, I get a few calls every month from an unhappy buyer who signed a BRA in DFW. They feel like they signed some strong, legally binding document that will blacken their soul if they even think about breaking it.
The truth is that it is very easy to break (terminate) a BRA. First, read the document and it should contain language about how to terminate the agreement. It could be very simple and easy to follow. But if not, then...
Plan B: call your agent and explain to them how unhappy you are with their services, cite a few examples (3 or more is good) of what you are unhappy about with their performance, and if they refuse then call the broker. If the broker also refuses, then contact their local real estate commission or even the NAR.
If you ever need more specific advice on this, call another agent from another brokerage and explain your situation. particularly if they are from a rival brokerage, they will be happy to talk you through it.
