The paperwork Required for all NH Real Estate transactions

The NH Real Estate Commission has posted the Following consumer advisory on their website. "Even though real estate professionals must always present properties honestly and accurately under the law, you must specifically hire an agent - using a written hiring contract - before that person legally owes you a duty of loyalty. Otherwise, that agent may ultimately be hired by a seller, and have a legal duty to disclose to that seller any information that you have revealed Until any agent actually contracts to represent your interests in a real estate transaction, do not disclose any information to him/her that you would not want a seller to possibly know."

This is great advise and we agree that all consumers should understand the paperwork involved in a real estate transaction, the new Hampshire Real Estate Commission website is a great place to see all the information you need to know, and as a convience we are also providing some of this information on this page.
We recommend that you also review the following pages in their site. Duties of Real Estate Licensees tells you what all NH Real Estate Licensee duties are. Broker Responsibilities describes the relationship of the broker in the transaction, remember there could be 2 brokers and 2 agents involved in your transaction. How the NHREC Protects Consumers your recourse with the commission if an agent or broker has acted inappropriate or If You Have Questions it is recommended that you call the NHRC at 603-271-2701

Agency Disclosure

The state of New Hampshire Real Estate Commission requires all consumers to review this form with the real estate agent you are talking with. THIS MAY BE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FORMS YOU NEED TO FULLY UNDERSTAND. It explains the difference of being a Customer or a Client. Do not assume that a licensee is acting on your behalf unless you sign a contract for representation. Until that time you are a customer and not a client. You should not expect the licensee to promote your best interest or to keep any information confidential, including your bargaining position.
Clients receive more services than customers. You become a client by entering into a written contract for representation as a seller/landlord or as a buyer/tenant. We strongly recommend that you download the NH Real Estate Agency Disclosure Form and read it over. This is a quick summation of the customer/client relationship there are other options you should understand.

As a customer,
you can expect us to provide the following
customer-level services:
As a client,
in addition to the customer-level services listed to the left plus,,

To provide reasonable care and skill;
To account for all monies received from or on behalf of the buyer/tenant or seller/landlord relating to the transaction;

Confidentiality;
Loyalty;

Promotion of the client's best interest. For seller/landlord clients this means the agent will put the seller/landlord's interests first and work on behalf of the seller/landlord.

Client-level services also include advice, counsel and assistance in negotiations.
