Independent Contractor Agreement For Sales Associate

TAR 2301 Independent Contractor Agreement for Sales Associate is designed as an association agreement when the agent is an independent contractor with the brokerage distribution partner. Permission to use TAR forms is limited to real estate transactions in which you (REALTORS®) represent a party or in your personal real estate business. Therefore, even if ART forms have been removed from publicly accessible areas of a website, ART forms should not be shared with members who are not your clients (REALTORS®) or who are not involved in a real estate transaction in which you represent a party. In accordance with the terms of the Final User License Agreement (EULA) ® Texas Association of REALTORS (TAR), any announcement of TAR forms must be made on a website behind a firewall or similar filtering software (username and password protection). Reporting ART forms without this protection is an infringement of EASA. The use of watermarks via TAR forms instead of a “firewall or similar filtering software” does not meet the requirements of the EULA. We had a “SAMPLE” form for the public to see what the form looked like, but unfortunately we received a “CEASE AND DESIST ALL COPYRIGHT VIOLATION” letter from the Texas Association of REALTORS®. The “SAMPLE” form we had was strongly marked by two copyright logos and a fairly large “SAMPLE” watermark on each page, but this was not acceptable to the association. The EULA says in part: “. You have the right to use white forms for real estate transactions in which you represent a party and/or in your personal real estate activity.

You also have the right to make Blank Forms available to your clients or parties in a real estate transaction in which you represent a party, on your website, on the extranet or on the website, on the extranet or any similar website of your real estate company, located behind a firewall or similar filtering software, provided, however, that one of the forms of Blank for members of the public, who are not your customers, is not accessible. or who are not involved in a real estate transaction in which you represent a party, using a public uniform resource locator (“URL”) without additional security features such as a password” (highlighted added). . . .
