The Exclusive Mandate
This is the written confirmation by the seller or purchaser towards the Real Estate Agency that assigns the exclusive promotion and management of the property for a certain time as 6 or 12 months to this agency alone, provided that the office will receive the commission only if the sale is made within the given time limit.

The Agents’ Commissions
The Agent is paid from all parties represented after having their written or oral mandate. The agent acts with consistency and reliability in order to complete the contract and is paid with 50% of the agreed fee, if there is a notarial preliminary contract and with full payment upon completion of the contract. The commission is the result of the free negotiation between the agent and his client. The same rules apply to assessments, as well as for land use studies.
