AGENCY DISCLOSURE INFORMATION IF THE BROKER REPRESENTS THE OWNER: The broker becomes the owner's agent by entering into an agreement with the owner, usually through a written listing agreement, or by agreeing to act as a subagent by accepting an offer of sub agency from the listing broker. A subagent may work in a different real estate office. A listing broker or subagent can assist the buyer but does not represent the buyer and must place the interests of the owner first. The buyer should not tell the owner' s agent anything the buyer would not want the owner to know because an owner' s agent must disclose to the owner any material information known to the agent.

IF THE BROKER REPRESENTS THE BUYER: The broker becomes the buyer's agent by entering into an agreement to represent the buyer, usually through a written buyer representation agreement. A buyer' s agent can assist the owner but does not represent the owner and must place the interests of the buyer first. The owner should not tell a buyer' s agent anything the owner would not want the buyer to know because a buyer' s agent must disclose to the buyer any material information known to the agent.

IF THE BROKER ACTS AS A DUAL AGENT IN CALIFORNIA: In dual agency, the broker represents both buyer and seller in the same transaction. In the real estate industry, even if one salesperson in an office is working with a buyer and another salesperson in the same office is working with the seller, the broker of the real estate firm is considered a dual agent.
A broker who acts as a dual agent in a transaction:

(a) shall treat all parties honestly;

(b) may not disclose that the owner will accept a price less than the asking price unless authorized in writing to do so by the owner;

(c) may not disclose that the buyer will pay a price greater than the price submitted in a written offer unless authorized in writing to do so by the buyer; and

(d) may not disclose any confidential information or any information that a party specifically instructs the broker in writing not to disclose unless authorized in writing to disclose the information or required to do so by State or Federal law or a court order or if the information materially relates to the condition of the property.
