I somehow completely missed that there was not an expiration date on the listing agreement I signed with my agent. I've read in some states this makes the agreement null and void, but I have already signed. Is this allowed in VA and if so when can I get out of the agreement?

What does your agent say about it?

If I recall my business law class from 35 years ago, your contract is probably voidable by you or the broker. It's not void unless one of the parties notifies the other of the intent to void it.

That being said, I'm certainly not an attorney and this should be construed as legal advice.

Amazing what leaving out one tiny little word does to a sentence.

Agreements to represent should have a start and stop date. As mentioned the agreement could be voidable but talk to your agent, fill in the date you want and send him a copy. You might initial the change and send for his initials also.

It will expire on the day you put in the agreement. Just be sure and send a copy to your agent. It's his error for leaving it blank.

I thought I edited that to SHOULDN'T. I saw my error almost as soon as I posted it. Thanks for pointing it out!

I did play a lawyer in a school play once.

I agree with this idea.
