In a dispute over a nearly $150,000 commission, the Florida Supreme Court has held that it is not contrary to Florida public policy for the government to pay a contingent fee for services. The ruling makes the Florida real estate market safe for brokers to continue working on a commission basis with government entities selling or leasing property.
