Referral Fees to Unlicensed Persons from Licensed Real Estate Brokers or Agents

Posted by Kathy & Seymour Fineman on Tuesday, June 17th, 2014 at 4:40pm.

Can a Real Estate Broker or Agent give a referral fee to someone who does not hold a real estate license? 

Answer:  No. Section 475.25(1)(h), Florida Statutes, prohibits a Florida licensee from paying a fee or compensating someone who does not hold a real estate license in Florida or another state. 

I am not a lawyer and this is not meant as legal advice.  I am a licensed Florida Realtor and this was taken from the Legal Center's Frequently Asked Questions of the Florida Realtors Organization website.
