Name of Agreement: Listing Agreement Language
Parties: Seller and Listing Broker
Purpose: The purpose of the Listing Agreement License Language is to have the seller grant to the broker the rights necessary for the broker to use the listing content, which includes but is not limited to the following elements: photographs, images, graphics, video recordings, virtual tours, drawings, written descriptions, remarks, narratives and pricing information, and any other copyrightable elements relating to the Property (“Listing Content”). The Listing Agreement Language also authorizes the broker to list the property in the MLS and allow the MLS to make IDX listings available to other brokers. Without a license, the broker’s use of any Listing Content of which the seller exercises ownership or control may constitute infringement, and the broker’s grant of rights to an MLS will be invalid.
Instructions: This document includes language, but is not a standalone agreement. It needs to be attached or incorporated into the listing agreement signed by the seller. If attached, the listing agreement should make reference to the attachment and state that the attachment is “incorporated by reference.” If the listing agreement does not define the listing broker as “Broker” and the property owner/seller as the “Seller,” the references in the language to Broker and Seller should be modified accordingly.
