With regard to dividing fees with out of state licensees, Section 17-513 of the Brokers Act states that “an individual licensed by this State may divide a fee that is earned on a real estate transaction in this State with an individual licensed to provide real estate brokerage services in another state if the other state allows a fee that is earned on a real estate transaction in that state to be divided with an individual licensed by this State.” In other words, if the other state’s laws permit its licensees to divide a fee with an out of state licensee, Maryland licensees are permitted to divide a fee with licensees from that state.
