Law Revision Commission Comments to California Code of Civil Procedure § 873.745

In 1976, the California Legislative Committee explained California Code of Civil Procedure § 873.745 as follows:

Section 873.745 is new; it codifies the court’s general authority to fix and, where necessary, limit and divide agents’ commissions. See Section 873.110 (services of third persons). For statutory provisions as to agents’ commissions in private sales of real property in probate, see Probate Code Sections 760, 761, 761.5, and 785.
