Working with an Industry Member


There are two different agency models practiced by brokerages in Nova Scotia: Common Law Agency and Designated Agency. The Industry Member reviewing this brochure with you will indicate which model their brokerage uses:

Common Law Agency

Exit Realty Town & Country is not a Common Law Brokerage

Under this model, all Industry Members working for the brokerage have an agency relationship with the seller, which means that they all legally represent the seller under the common law. If you, as a buyer, have entered into a relationship with an Industry Member working with this brokerage as a client, and are interested in negotiating on a property offered for sale by this brokerage, you would normally enter into a transaction brokerage relationship, as described in this brochure. If you have not had a previous relationship with an Industry Member of this brokerage, you would be provided services as a customer as described in this brochure.

Designated Agency  

Exit Realty Town & Country is a Designated Agency Brokerage.

This model allows for a seller to be represented by a specific Industry Member, rather than the whole brokerage. This means that all Industry Members at the brokerage do not represent every seller listed with the brokerage. This model also allows a buyer to be represented by their own Industry Member in any negotiations that they may do, regardless of whether the property they are interested in is listed with that brokerage or another one. This is called designated agency because the brokerage designates that the Industry Members represent specific buyers or sellers. Should the same Industry Member happen to represent both a buyer and seller that end up wanting to negotiate, then that Industry Member would normally act as a transaction facilitator for the purposes of the real estate transaction. 

In both situations described above where transaction brokerage is offered, and either the buyer or seller insist on full representation, they would have to get representation from another brokerage in the case of the Common Law model or from another Designated Agent at their brokerage in the case of the Designated Agency model. They also have the option of having their lawyer represent them.


The following terms are used in most NSREC mandatory forms:

Brokerage: the real estate company under which the individual salesperson, associate broker, managing associate broker or broker is licensed.

Buyer: a person acquiring or attempting to acquire an interest in real estate by purchase.

Client: a Buyer/Seller who has engaged a brokerage in an agency relationship to act for them, and on their behalf, either to buy or sell real estate.

Customer: a person who is engaged with a brokerage in a non-agency relationship to buy or sell real estate.

Facilitation Services: services that do not require the exercising of discretion or judgement, giving confidential advice or advocating on behalf of either the buyer of the seller.

Material Latent Defect: a fault in the property that would not be discovered by a reasonably thorough building inspection that can have a serious impact on the value of the property or involve health and/or safety issues.

Purchase: includes any trade, exchange, option, lease or other acquisition of an interest in real estate.

Sale: includes any trade, exchange, option, lease or other disposition of an interest in real estate.

Seller: a person disposing or attempting to dispose of an interest in real estate by sale.

Trade or Trading: includes a disposition or acquisition of or transaction in real estate by sale, purchase, agreement for sale, exchange, option, commercial lease or rental or otherwise and any offer or attempt to list real estate for the purpose of such a disposition or transaction, and any act, advertisement, conduct or negotiation, directly or indirectly, in furtherance of any disposition, acquisition, transaction, offer or attempt.

Transaction Brokerage: a relationship in which a brokerage and/or a designated agent provides facilitation services to the buyer and the seller in the same trade.

1. Client Relationship

Real estate representatives work with clients in a legal relationship called agency.

As the client, the agency relationship exists between you and the brokerage under common law agency, or between you and the designated agent under designated agency. The essence of the agency relationship is that the brokerage and/or the designated agent has the authority to represent you as a client in real estate dealings with others.

Brokerages and/or designated agents are legally obligated to protect and promote your interests. Your real estate representative has the following duties:

• to protect and promote your negotiating position at all times;

• to disclose all relevant facts about a property or a transaction, including material latent defects;

• to obey all your lawful instructions;

• to provide undivided loyalty;

• to act in your best interest;

• to exercise reasonable care and skill in performing all assigned duties; and

• to account for all money and property placed in their possession while acting on your behalf.

Your real estate representative will also:

• explain real estate terms and practices;

• provide and explain forms used;

• identify and estimate service costs of other professionals involved in a transaction;

• assist you with negotiation;

• prepare offers and counter offers at your direction;

• present all offers promptly; and

• give you true copies of all agreements.

2. Transaction Brokerage/ Facilitation

IMPORTANT: If you are in transaction brokerage do not provide the transaction facilitator with any information you do not want the other party to know, subject to limitations defined in other agreement(s).

Transaction brokerage occurs when a real estate brokerage or a designated agent enters into an agreement, in which the brokerage or the designated agent acts as an impartial facilitator for the seller and the buyer in the same trade. As an impartial facilitator, the brokerage or the designated agent treats the buyer and the seller in an even-handed and impartial manner. Under transaction brokerage, the brokerage or the designated agent acts as an impartial facilitator for both parties, not exclusively in the best interest of one party as the brokerage or designated agent would in a client relationship. No one is obligated to proceed with a real estate transaction under transaction brokerage. Both the buyer and seller must be provided with an opportunity to obtain independent advice. Either the seller or the buyer may obtain representation from another brokerage and/or designated agent or be treated as a customer as an alternative to transaction brokerage. All parties must consent, in writing, to transaction brokerage before an Agreement of Purchase and Sale is prepared. Failing which, treat one party as a customer, or be referred to another brokerage/designated agent to receive representation.

Under transaction brokerage, the real estate representative will, for both the buyer and seller include the following, but not limited to:

• explain real estate terms and practices; and

• identify and estimate service costs of other professionals involved in a transaction.

Under this relationship, the real estate representative cannot:

• provide utmost loyalty to the Buyer and the Seller;

• act in the best interests of either the Buyer or the Seller;

• offer advice or recommendations to either the Buyer or the Seller; and the Buyer or the Seller.

3. Customer Relationship

IMPORTANT: If you are in a customer relationship do not provide the real estate representative with any information you do not want the other party to know, subject to limitations defined in other agreement(s).

A buyer or a seller may also choose to use the services of a real estate representative without an agency relationship. For example, this might occur when a real estate representative is showing you their seller client’s property or when they approach a seller directly on behalf of their buyer client.

In this relationship, the real estate representative has a legal and ethical duty to provide accurate and honest answers to questions and can provide the following services:

• explain real estate terms and practices; and

• identify and estimate service costs of other professionals involved in a transaction.

The real estate representative cannot:

• provide utmost loyalty to the Buyer and the Seller;

• act in the best interests of either the Buyer or the Seller;

• offer advice or recommendations to either the Buyer or the Seller; and the Buyer or the Seller.


Real estate representatives respect the privacy expectations of consumers and the requirements imposed by law. Your informed consent is required for the collection, use and retention of your personal information. Making you aware of how your personal information will be used, to whom it will be disclosed and how long it will be stored forms a basis of a relationship of trust between you and your real estate representative.

Real estate representatives are required by federal law to collect information that confirms the identity of buyers and sellers. In addition, to assist the marketing and sale of a property, real estate representatives must collect information including: listing price, purchase price, listing duration, interior and exterior photos and assessment information. Your real estate representative must disclose the information collected to his or her broker.

Real estate representatives will disclose the information to other brokerages, potential buyers and interested parties during the course of marketing of the property for sale, as well as through the sales process. In addition, all or some of it will be disclosed to the Nova Scotia Association of REALTORS®, government departments, appraisers, municipal organizations and others. Some of the information will be compiled in statistics for use in comparative sales analyses by appraisers and brokerages, as well as consumers. All or some of the information may be published in print and made available on the internet through websites maintained by real estate representatives and brokerages.

I understand that the brokerage/real estate licensees have an obligation to comply with the provisions of the Nova Scotia Real Estate Trading Act (the “Act”), and NSREC Bylaw, and that this may include providing my personal information to the NSREC for the purpose of audit, inspection, review and related purposes. I consent to the disclosure of my personal information as identified as above.

Retention of Information: All information is collected by each real estate representative is retained by their brokerage for at least seven (7) years. This allows the brokerages to meet its obligations to all government and regulatory authorities.
