MISSOURI BROKER DISCLOSURE FORM
This disclosure is to enable you, a prospective buyer, seller, tenant or landlord of real estate, to make an informed choice
BEFORE working with a real estate licensee.
Missouri law allows licensees to work for the interest of one or both of the parties to the transaction. The law also allows
the licensee to work in a neutral position. How the licensee works depends on the type of brokerage service agreements
involved. Since the sale or lease of real estate can involve several licensees it is important that you understand what
options are available to you regarding representation and to understand the relationships among the parties to any
transaction in which you are involved.
Missouri laws require that if you want representation, you must enter into a written agreement. This may or may not
require you to pay a commission. You do not need to enter into a written agreement with a transaction broker unless you
intend to compensate this licensee. These agreements vary and you may also want to consider an exclusive or
nonexclusive type of relationship.
If you choose not to be represented by an agent, the licensee working with you may be working for the other party to the
