I have a verbal agreement to split a refferal fee–no payment–will it hold in court?

by admin on April 7, 2011

Now that he received the check, he refused to give me my half of the money. Will I win in small claims court with just a verbal agreement?
This agreement was made with a friend. He first bought a new home from a builder. Then I purchased a home from the same builder naming him as the refferal for the amount of 00 if we both closed escrow which we did. Before I gave them his name I asked if he would split half the 00 with me. He said yes!

    referral fees are slippery parts of the law; it all depends on what
    you were referring on. IF you can give me more data, I will
    advise you and explain the law on that topic.

    [if you are waiting for a referral fee from a licensee on
    a home sale or purchase, you are not eligible.]

    your agreement was void when it was made.

    No on the verbal agreement

    No, you will not win.

    You needed a signed contract with the broker. Nothing verbal in RE law is binding.

    It may not even be legal for you to have any Fee at all, agreement or not. Anyone with a right to one knows they need a contract.
