My buyers waited to close ONE day after my contract had expired with my sellers. My buyers also had contracted directly with my sellers PRIOR to the expiration of my contract with the sellers.
Do you smell what I’m steppin’ in???
When I took the buyers to court, the judge said “You know, even if they did go around you and it was fraud, it looks like to me that they were just trying to save five thousand dollars (my ‘assignment’ fee)”. I could not believe my ears. But, since I did not have a lawyer, I didn’t know where to go with an argument and he ruled in the buyers’ favor.
