Good Morning,

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but once the contracts are signed and exchanged you as the seller cannot terminate unless the buyer agrees.

If the buyer agrees to cancel the contract then you can terminate.

Because a buyer was found and you signed the contract the agent has a right to collect his commission because it was sold.

I am sorry I cannot give you anything more positive. If there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards

Leon
