Good Morning.

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

You have to do it in writing.

Refer to the agreement and the clause that allows you to terminate and say you are terminating and given them the notice period that is required.

You do not have to give a reason just the notice as required.

If you sell to anyone that the agent referred you may be liable for the commission so you have to make sure that you give them the notice. If you could wait a few months after the end of the notice before you sell that would also be good.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
