The initial period for listing a property within CIREBA is twelve months with an option to renew in six month increments thereafter. In the Cayman Islands the real estate fees are usually paid by the vendor unless agreed otherwise by the purchaser in an offer to purchase, the real estate fees will be paid as first disbursement of funds at closing and if the purchasers real estate agent is different to the listing agent and is also a member of CIREBA the real estate fees will be split equally between the two agents.

Under the CIREBA listing agreement the principal is the vendor of the real estate and they pay the real estate fees for both the buyer and seller’s agentsA CIREBA agent therefore has fiduciary responsibility to the vendor, notwithstanding a buyer is an agents customer to whom that CIREBA agent owes honest and trustworthy treatment.
