To be a little more clear with the circumstances, the Buyer did not complete as per the contract. The Sellers lawyer's position then was that the Buyer was in breach and therefore the Seller's could re-list with another agent. The lawyer and/or the buyer provided the new listing agent the Buyer's contact info and originally agreed purchase price...which is what the property ended up selling for. Also, to conceal the original Buyer's identity, my research shows that the Buyer changed director's of a BC company he owned to a party that ultimately purchased the property with the intention of concealing the identity of the real Buyer. To add insult to injury, the Sellers purchased another property through a different agent who is also good friends with the Seller's lawyer. Does this change you opinion? Would I still be able to sue the Lawyer for damages?
Also, would I have grounds to report the lawyer to the Bar?
I know these are sensitive questions to be asking a Lawyer.
