2. No person, except the persons referred to in section 3, may be the intermediary party to a real estate brokerage contract for the sale or purchase of an immovable without holding a broker’s or agency licence issued in accordance with this Act or a special authorization from the real estate self-regulatory organization known as the Organisme d’autoréglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec (the Organization) established under section 31.
Consequently, the intermediary party to a real estate brokerage contract for the lease of any immovable is not required to hold a broker’s or agency licence. Such a licence may nevertheless be issued if the intermediary applies for it, as if the licence were necessary.
Subject to Division IV of Chapter II, a person who contravenes the first paragraph may not claim or receive remuneration for performing the obligations of an intermediary.
