Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning Dave,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
If you have a contract with the brokerage that mandates that they hold the funds from sale no longer than 10 days, and they are holding the funds beyond that time, then yes, they are in breach of contract. The fact that the boat was sold as is, should have eliminated any of these issues and I wonder what the excuse of the brokerage might be as to their refusal to disburse the funds.
You will need to look carefully at the contract to determine whether there are any exceptions which would allow them to hold the funds for a longer period of time.

Good evening Dave,
This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, for a very nominal charge I can offer you a private phone conference as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread which is searchable and viewable by the public.Please know that I answered your question in good faith, providing you with the information that you asked for, and I did that with the expectation that you would act likewise and rate my service to you. If I have already provided you with the information you asked for and you have no additional questions, would you please now rate my service to you so I can be compensated for assisting you?Thanks in advance,Doug
