Note that Broker is not engaged in offering legal, accounting, or other professional services for which outside counsel should be sought.


NOTE: Normally, the Seller customarily pays the selling commission. The purpose of this Finder Fee Agreement, however, is to enable Broker to share with a prospective Procurer real estate which he does not have listed and financing of projects, because Broker cannot list every real property that he is aware of which may be for sale. However, Broker agrees not to accept compensation from a Seller, Lessor, Optionor, Lender or any other Broker unless this fact is fully disclosed to the Procurer in writing prior to closing. If, however, the Procurer circumvents Fortt Exchequer Investments by negotiating directly with the Seller, Lender or another Broker for any real property which he has been introduced to by Fortt Exchequer Investments, Procurer agrees to pay any applicable Finder's Fee as herein stated in this Agreement.
