What duties survive the termination of the agency relationship in South Carolina?

by | Jul 2, 2015 | Legal Tips

Agents often ask me what duties they owe the client after the relationship has been terminated. South Carolina Code §40-57-140 states that the licensee and the Broker have no duty or obligation to a client following termination, expiration or completion of an agency agreement EXCEPT for the duties of accounting and confidentiality.  However, the duty of confidentiality does not require you to keep matters confidential that are required by law to be disclosed, are authorized by the client, or the information becomes public from a source other than the broker (i.e., recorded at ROD).
