If the lesser rejected the first offer, and you did not accept the second offer, then that will not be binding on you. You discharged the contractual obligation by offering the first time and don't need to accept their change of mind. If you haven't done so, then you are probably clear of any obligation. But if you accepted the second offer, then you are bound by this. The agency is something more difficult. You can say you were obliged to offer to the lessor, and so they didn't introduce the buyer. But this can depend on the wording of the agents commission agreement
That is quite possible, but you should get your lawyer to look careful.y at the agreements first and confirm the position
