Real Estate Law
Have Real Estate Law Questions? Ask a Real Estate Lawyer.
You can explain that first he has not done his job to your satisfaction and then go into the details about your changed circumstances. Aside from that it is hard to get out of a signed contract unless you have proof of fraud. In this case, he breached his end of the contract and so instead of suing him you are simply asking for a release.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
