Document review. I am a homeowner that has terminated my contract with a leasing company that has been managing my two homes in Florida.

No. She withdrew because of the document review.

I do not participate in telephone calls. I am happy to work from here or see if I can find an Attorney on the site that will call and review the documents.

Ok. This is a copy of the email I received today;I wanted to reach out to you today as I understand you have moved to sell the home to the current tenant at 4797 Timberland.Based on the PMA (contract you signed) “under Fees”: We are considered the recurring cause as the tenant was placed by us.It also goes on to state that we shall receive a 6% when the tenant purchases the home.I have the PMA with both you and Dee’s initials and signatures.The date of signature is: 7/15/07I have the fax stamp on the page back from you” Aug-17-2007.I have the page attached so you can review it. I also have the PMA for Johnson Ave. That also states if anyone purchases the home we are eligible for a commission.I am reaching out to you because I would like to work through this situation of Timberland within the next 24 hours.I will look forward to how you would like to resolve this.Have a good day,Robert

Ok

I also advised the site that the best outcome would be a phone call with an Attorney that will review the documents. In the meantime I am reviewing them.

I see the language he is referencing. How did you cancel the management agreement?

Ask Your Own Real Estate Law Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Certified letter. I have the receipts for both contracts on both homes within the prescribed 60 days. He is playing with the difference between their contract with the tenants and the one with us.

He was the procuring cause for this tenant to rent from you and ultimately purchase the property?

Ask Your Own Real Estate Law Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
They did procure this tenant, but the home has not been sold to them yet. They are intending to buy it and we are negotiating, but it is not sold yet.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
That is for the Timberland home. The Johnson Ave home, the tenants moved out and another party bought the home.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
He is claiming we will owe for both.

When I read the cancellation it requires that no tenant procured by the management can be residing in the home.

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
The Timberland tenants lease is up March 31

Well there are no rights as far as the Johnson home.

Ask Your Own Real Estate Law Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
The tenants are being represented by another realtor as are we.

I see no rights in the Johnson home the Timberland home is a different issue based on the cancellation clause.

Ask Your Own Real Estate Law Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
What is the difference?

When I read the cancellation it requires that no tenant procured by the management can be residing in the home.

Ask Your Own Real Estate Law Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Ok. Thank you

Paragraph 10 Termination requires that the agreement can only be terminated when it is unoccupied by the tenant they procured. Are you able to see the language?
