Sir/ Madam, How are you! May I ask if I can terminate sell
Hi, Sir/ Madam,How are you!May I ask if I can terminate sell listing agreement with an agent? I try to sell my house , at the beginning not too happy with the agents, but I signed the contract already, if I can terminate it? I live in California.I signed a listing agreement with agents(2 person), after I signed the contract, one of agent required me trim tree(too expensive) and other remodeling require of the house, because too expensive, I refused, so they did not put my house on the market until I finished one remodel.At the beginning of listing, look like work so hard with them, they are 2 person, one said good words, one said bad words,but finally you will meet their requirements,and do not know what will happen in the future, feel too difficult work with them, if I can terminated the listing contract? I really appreciated your great help.Thanks and best regards
I am an RE broker in CA. On of my client sent me the request
I am an RE broker in CA. On of my client sent me the request of cancelation of current listing via email which is due on December 2016. She said that another agent forced her to do so by promising to sell it within a month. The house is $2.5 M, not easy to sell , and I already spent 65 months with open houses, ad and other stuff. Do I have any legal tools to reject her request?
I am a Realtor in Chester County PA, and last year I had a
Hello,I am a Realtor in Chester County PA, and last year I had a listing, that five days after signing a listing contract with me signed another one with another Brokerage and Realtor! I did not know this, and proceeded to market the property, Broker open signs, elc. lock box, just listed post cards, etc. During the listing process I suggested they get their stucco checked as it has been a problem in our county for years now. It was done by Isg, and the report showed several areas of high moisture. I went over report with my broker and he agreed there was one area that needed to be opened for further inspection. The owners contacted the inspection company and he changed his recommendations after discussing report with homeowners. They decided to seal the areas in question. This reversal caused the sellers to want me to release them from contract. But they had already hired another Realtor long before this issue came up? Listed with second Realtor five days after listing with me! Long story short it is illegal in Pa to work with two Realtors at the same time. The house sold and I lost approximately $15,000.00 in commissions. What are my options as in the listing contract the first question to Sellers is are you currently working with a Realtor? Yes or no? Also second agent had to see my lock box and sign at property as he had it listed as electronic lock box mine! Thank you for your advise in this matter.Best Regards,Rick

I have a question. I have my realtor specific instructionsView more real estate law questions
Hello. I have a question. I have my realtor specific instructions about handling the sale of my home. I asked the alarm be on at all times. We were out of state and trusted her with the property. When we saw the house one last time.. The alarm was off and the screen door was off the track. Even though the house did sell the realtor did not follow instructions and allowed the prospective buyer in an out with out notice and with out locking up everything. She collected full commission.. Because her theory is well I sold it. Do I have any recourse?
