                                                              DUAL AGENCY
Kentucky law permits a real estate agent and brokerage to represent both the Seller and Buyer in a real estate transaction as long as
this is disclosed to both parties and they both agree. This is known as dual agency. As a dual agent, a real estate agent and brokerage
represent two clients whose interests are, or at times could be, different or adverse. For this reason, the dual agent(s) may not be able to
advocate on behalf of the client to the same extent the agent may have if the agent represented only one client.


As a dual agent, the agent(s) and brokerage shall:
    • Treat both clients honestly;
    • Disclose latent (not readily observable) material defects to the purchaser, if known by the agent(s) or brokerage;
    • Provide information regarding lenders, inspectors and other professionals, if requested;
    • Provide market information available from a property listing service or public records, if requested;
    • Prepare and present all offers and counteroffers at the direction of the parties;
    • Assist both parties in completing the steps necessary to fulfill the terms of any contract, if requested.

As a dual agent, the agent(s) and brokerage shall not:
    • Disclose information that is confidential, or that would have an adverse effect on one party’s position in the transaction,
        unless such disclosure is authorized by the client or required by law;
    • Advocate or negotiate on behalf of either the Seller or Buyer;
    • Suggest or recommend specific terms, including price, or disclose the terms or price a Buyer is willing to offer or that a Seller
        is willing to accept;
    • Engage in conduct that is contrary to the instructions of either party or act in a biased manner on behalf of one party.

Responsibilities of the Parties: The duties of the agent and brokerage in a real estate transaction do not relieve the Seller and Buyer
from the responsibility to protect their own interests. The Seller and Buyer are advised to carefully read all agreements to assure that
they adequately express their understanding of the transaction. The agent and brokerage are qualified to advise on real estate matters. IF
LEGAL OR TAX ADVICE IS DESIRED, YOU SHOULD CONSULT THE APPROPRIATE PROFESSIONAL.

Consent: By signing on the reverse side, you acknowledge that you have read and understand this form and are giving your voluntary,
informed consent to the agency relationship disclosed. If you do not agree to the agent(s) and/or brokerage acting as a dual agent, you are
not required to consent to this agreement.

                                                        DESIGNATED AGENCY

If both Seller and Buyer consent, the broker responsible for a real estate office may designate agents to represent the Seller and the
Buyer to the exclusion of all other agents associated with his office. The Buyer will become the client of the agent designated to
represent him and the Seller will become the client of the agent designated to represent him. Designated agency allows two licensees
in the same firm to represent different parties to a real estate transaction. The principal broker serves as a dual agent in a designated
agency transaction. Consent of the client is always needed to create designated agency.




     This contract is for use by Maria Gnas. Use by any other party is illegal and voids the contract.
