I am insurance agent who is trying to develop leads. My leas source(several) some are agents some are not.. His is to get name address zip code information from interested customers and then I or other licensed agents call the customer and try to sell health ins... Several different states. I have contract that states payment is based on an amount per sale. I now realize that I can pay other ins agents referral fees based on each sale but not non agents.
I have yet to make any sales or even try but did I break the law by having the contract or only if I honor it. I will try to renegotiate with non agents lead sources.

Hello again,

Entering into an illegal contract is typically considered evidence of an illegal act but it would not by itself be enough to prove that an unlawful transaction actually occurred normally. If you have not actually paid any fees to unlicensed individuals, then there would typically be no violation involved, although it would be very wise to renegotiate the contracts so they conform with the law as you have indicated you intend to do.


I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate my service when I have answered your questions so I will be compensated for my time assisting you. Thank you!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
