Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I am not sure what your question is. Are you contemplating a suit against Re-Max? Are you trying to assess your chances? If the answer to your question is negative regarding your chances of success, will you automatically rate that as a poor or bad answer?
I am trying to get compensated for money spent which I as a joint owner of the condo did not agree to. 3
Re-Max did not ask my permission on any money spent.
Thanks for your reply
You originally referred to it as "my condo". Is it in your name jointly with your wife? If it is in fact jointly owned did both of you sign the management contract? Where did the money come from to pay for what was done? Did you ever instruct the agent in writing that they had to have your approval as well as your wife's before spending money?
We both signed the management contract and NO I did not instruct the agent in writing that that they could spend the money. My wife did but I was out of the country.
I never got an answer
hello again. I do not understand your "bad service" rating. You said : My question is, is it legal do do these costly things even though my wife agreed to it. My answer was "Yes", it was "legal". If you try to sue ReMax for breach of the management agreement, they will have numerous legal defenses to assert. In addition, they will most likely (I would) cross-file against your wife for any damages that you are suing them for on the grounds that she misrepresented her authority. I could easily have told you that you have a good case vs ReMax, but in truth you don't. That's why they'll ignore you and their attorney will ignore your attorney. We do not tailor our information to what the customer obviously wants to hear. I hope you will come to understand that the legal information I have provided may well save you a great deal of frustration and legal expense, and you will adjust this rating to a positive one.
