No, I would like you to provide an agreement template.
Today anytime would be perfect... Let me add this (I am a morning person, so my ideas a clearer)... The purpose of this document is to put non-scary simple terms (this is why I insist this be contained in 1 page) to clarify the point (and define the terms) we need to be compensated for our work. We have our client seeking for a home (in these three cases it is during events such as the PowerBowl, the Masters or the Sundane Film Festival) for 3 to 7 days. Our client is a VIP. The homes are represented by a realtor or in this instance the Chamber of Commerce of Augusta. These reps must understand they need to secure this payment for us if they want the business. I will also ask we're the first paid from the deposit or prepayment. As soon as they get the money from the client, we get our payment. It can be a % of the total rental or a mark=up from their negotiated price... If they are renting a home $20,000 for 4-5 days in New Orleans, we'll ask them to present it and invoice $22,000 and expect the $2,000 to be paid to us... They can take their own commissions (if 10% calculated on the $20K).
I just need this to be very very clear. If they wouldn't pay us, we would just ask our client to retract. And it would be without any cost to the client.
