Legal advice on property for sale with multiple agents?Make Text Bigger
I need some legal advice on a property for sale, please. Three agents were advising on our property for sale back in September 2019. There were few offers, which were not accepted until January this year.
Agent A forwarded an offer in January, which was accepted but later on the buyer, which was a company pulled back. Few more offers sent by B & C were not accepted. “A “ again forwarded another offer in Late January, which was accepted.
After a valuation survey, the property was taken off the market on the request of A. All enquires done and exchange of contracts signed from our side. Since that Agent “A” has sent many emails and messages that everything is completed and exchange would be done in a weeks time, but it never happened because it was a chain and the buyer had a mortgage problem.
The property remained off the market till June without any progress. We had to spend a lot on mortgage, maintenance, utilities etc. Last month we put the property back in the market without Agent A.
This time Agent C, forwarded an offer a few days ago, which was accepted and C started their work. In the meantime, “A “ emailed us, stating the offer sent by C are the same people who were buying this property for their company through them, but now they are buying in their personal names.
If we sell to these people through Agent “C”, he will send us an invoice of commission since “A “ is the introducing Agent.
We are thinking of going to the Ombudsman Office with this whole scenario since “A “ has caused us a lot of loss with his pending sale and now again trying to delay the sale. Any good advice on offer, please.
