Commission payments & exposé mailings for property sales
These regulations apply to buyers and sellers since 2020
Since December 23.12 In 2020, new regulations will apply in Germany for commission payments when selling houses or apartments with the support of a real estate agent. Since then, the law has stipulated that the buyer of a property always has to pay the same commission rate to the broker that the seller pays. So both parties always pay the same commission rate.
The renewal of the commission payments also brought about a change in the delivery of the exposé, because the legislature has since demanded a text form of the offer and a written acceptance of the commission amount from the interested buyer in advance.
As a result, KRAFT Immobilien Bonn adapted the procedure for sending the synopsis to the legal requirements for the marketing of real estate.
If real estate seekers become aware of an apartment or house for sale on a portal or on their own realtor homepage, you can use the contact form to submit a request for an exposé. Those interested in KRAFT Immobilien Bonn will then receive an email with a brokerage contract in which the amount of the commission rate is explicitly stated. The contract and the commission rate must now be accepted in writing. A reply e-mail with the one-liner "Order placed, (name) is sufficient here. The synopsis is only sent automatically after confirmation. The interested party incurs no costs through the written assignment. A commission payment is only mandatory when the purchase has been concluded positively and the notarized purchase contract has been signed.

Details on revocation:
In 2014, the German courts ruled that consumers must expressly be made aware of their right to withdraw from a contract. For estate agents, this means that a contract comes into being at the latest once we have forwarded a listing to you. To give you a clearer idea of this complicated process, please watch the following short film (in German):
Kraft Immobilien GmbH operates in the property sector. As such, before entering into a business relationship it is required under Section 1, Section 2(1), no. 10,4 and Section 3(XNUMX) of the German Money Laundering Act (GwG) to establish and verify the identity of the party to the contract. This means that we must keep a record of the relevant data from your ID card or passport, for example by making a copy or taking a photo. The Money Laundering Act requires estate agents to retain this information for five years. The German IVD Real Estate Association has prepared a flyer on the Act. As this flyer is only available in German, below is a summary of the main points for your convenience. Please refer to the Act for further information. Under the German Money Laundering Act, estate agents are required to obtain the following data from private persons: name, place/date of birth, nationality, address, ID/passport number and issuing authority; and from companies the following data: company name, legal form, registration number, address, registered headquarters and the name of the legal representative. In addition, for both private and commercial customers information is required on the business purpose and whether the customer is acting alone or for a third party. Furthermore, customers are obliged under German law to disclose the above information.
