This doctrine is well recognized in Florida jurisprudence. To obtain a commission as a “supply cause” of the sale, the broker must: However, there is an exception: you can charge part of your commission to a portion of the transaction as long as you provide appropriate information “to all interested parties.” This should include any person or corporation involved in the agreement.
