Broomfield Real Estate 101: Estates

Home for sale in BroomfieldSome of the most confusing terminology in real estate for just about anyone, including real estate agents, is understanding estates, and the different kinds of “interests” held by owners of what we call “real property.” Broomfield real estate terminology for everyone and making it understandable can be a challenge, Real property is generally defined as “land and anything attached to it,” which is easy to grasp. Estates are grouped into different degrees of ownership that is termed and categorized by the amount of ownership rights that are attached to the property. This is determined by the type of deed, bill of sale, lease, or situation that dictates the transferability of the property.

The word “estate” is a term that has been used for many years, and goes back to our ancestry in England where the boundaries of ownership and different types of ownership interests were originally defined. Today, most of these ownership types for real property are not used as they were in the past, and the image of a large estate with outbuildings and sprawling countryside is what we all picture in our minds.Condominiums in Broomfield Colorado Real Estate Market

Fee simple estate ownership is the most common and the ownership is not definitely defined by length of time. This is the “best” type of ownership, and the person(s) enjoying an estate is called a tenant. A life estate involves the “sticking” of an occupant’s interest with the property. If an estate can be sold, the sale of the property does not change the possession of the “grantee.” This is where a lot of the more involved types of estates come into the picture.

Leasehold estates are the most common type because tenants are involved. Real estate as a whole recognizes this as either an “estate for term” or a “tenancy for years.” This is commonly seen as a lease situation between a landlord and the tenant, the contract agreement defines the ending date of occupancy for the renter. The tenant has the right to stay for the term of the lease, as long as none of the agreed contract provisions within the rental agreement are not broken by either party. This is the right of possession for the tenant and not actual ownership of the home.

Broomfield Real Estate Agent: Legal Responsibilities

Buying a House in Broomfield ColoradoIt’s important to understand what legal responsibilities your Broomfield real estate agent has to you and to other parties in the transaction when you are buying a home for sale. Simply ask your agent or a Broomfield Realtor you might be considering working with exactly what type of agency relationship they have or would have with you. Many agents do not go into the details of working relationships and qualifying what their role and status would be in helping you in your search for homes in Broomfield Colorado. So here are the general definitions of what can be thought of as defining working relationships for client and agent situations:

Listing Agent or Seller’s Agent (sometimes referred to as a Seller’s Representative)
Someone who hires a Listing Agent should know that agent represents you, the person who owns a Broomfield property for sale. All fiduciary duties of the agent are owed to the Seller. This means that the agent has a fiduciary duty and obligation to look out for your best interests and to take any action to protect any situation that might compromise your position as a Seller both financially and or any motivations you might have in selling your home. The agency relationship usually is created by a listing contract that you both sign. This is a legally binding contract and it protects your best interests and at the same time it allows protection for the agent for his or her time and efforts.

Buyer’s Agent or Selling Agent (sometimes referred to as a Buyer’s Representative)
A Buyer’s Agent is hired by prospective home buyers to represent them in a real estate transaction. The Buyer’s Agent works in the buyer’s best interest throughout the transaction and owes fiduciary duties only to the Buyer. The Buyer can pay a Broomfield Realtor directly through a negotiated fee, or the Buyer’s Agent may be paid by the Seller or through a commission split with the Seller’s Agent.

This is the least common type of agency relationship that occurs. Subagency usually arises when a cooperating sales associate from another brokerage, who is not the buyer’s agent, shows property to a buyer. In such a case, the subagent works with the buyer as a customer but owes fiduciary duties to the listing broker and the seller. A subagent owes the same fiduciary duties to the agent’s customer as the agent does. Although a subagent is not able to assist the Buyer in any way that would be detrimental to the Seller, a buyer as a customer can usually anticipate treatment to be straightforward and honest by the subagent. Colorado state laws require fair treatment and it is important that subagents fully explain their duties to buyers and present a disclosure form regarding relationships.

Disclosed Dual Agent
Dual agency is a relationship in which the brokerage firm represents both the buyer and the seller in the same real estate transaction. Dual agency relationships do not carry with them all of the traditional fiduciary duties to clients. Instead, dual agents owe limited fiduciary duties. Because of the potential for conflicts of interest in a dual-agency relationship, it’s vital that all parties give their informed consent. In many states, this consent must be in writing. In the State of Colorado dual agency is not allowed. Either the agent is working for the Seller or the Buyer, or that agent is working for neither. Disclosed dual agency, in which both the Seller and the Buyer are being represented, and they are made fully aware of that fact, is legal in most states.
Transaction Broker (also called a Non-agency Agreement)
Some states permit a real estate licensee to have a type of nonagency relationship with a consumer. These relationships vary considerably from state to state, both as to the duties owed to the consumer and the name used to describe them. Very generally, the duties owed to the consumer in a nonagency relationship are less than the complete, traditional fiduciary duties of an agency relationship. And typically does not save any mondy and overall is less effect in saving money and time and the reduced stress of buying a home.

Designated Agent (also called an appointed agent)
In this situation the managing broker is able to designate which licensees in the brokerage will act for the interests of the Seller and which will act for the Buyer. Designated agency avoids the problem of creating a dual-agency relationship for licensees at the brokerage. The designated agents give their respective clients representation in full, with all of the expected responsibilities and fiduciary duties. The managing broker who runs the firm still has the responsibility of supervising both groups of licensees throughout the transaction.
