The provision, “during the period of commission, should the owner reject to consummate a sale with a buyer recommended by the agent in accordance with the price authorized by the owner previously, the owner shall still pay the broker’s fee to the agent“, has been used often in the standard real estate sale agency agreement between the owner and the real estate agent.  The Taiwan High Court, in a judgment dated June 17, 2014, deemed the real estate agent agreement as an agreement of brokerage and the broker is entitled to his remuneration only if the sales contract is successfully consummated.  The  quoted provision is contrary to the said principle and abridged the owner’s right to decide whether to make the sale.  Given that such standard provision violates the principle of good faith and is unfair to consumers, the Court deemed it to be without effect.
