This is a simple form that may be picked up at an office supply store, your accountant, attorney or purchase our complete business brokerage office forms package. You may even have a blank one in your Corporate Book.

Basically, the corporation meets and votes to authorize a person or persons to act on it's behalf in the execution of a decision or agreement. This may be to enter into a listing agreement, accept an offer of purchase or something else.

It should be signed by at least the secretary of the corporation and in some areas, the corporate seal may need to be in place and or notarized.

Any questions? Call the person holding your corporate book!
