This was a contract with 'sole selling rights' which I assume you understand the definition of this contract. Fees are payable if 'they introduce someone' during and after the end of the sole selling right contract., but they didn't and the café was sold a week after the contract was officially terminated by letter (recorded delivery) by means of a 'quick' reduced sale price, therefore no 'unconditional contracts' were 'exchanged' during the period of their 'sole selling rights' therefore am I right in saying that we do not owe any agency fees? please tell me what my position is? thank you
Thank you, ***** ***** what you mean 'its not in the contract that they can't claim anything?'
I'm confused now! because a 'sole selling rights' means fees are payable whether the agent or the owner/third party finds their own buyer! my argument for believing I don't owe any fees is purely based on the fact that the contracts were exchanged after the contract was terminated! but the agent argues that the deal was discussed and agreed prior to the termination of the contract, therefore they are entitled to claim their fee!
I so not! because contracts were exchanged 7 days after the contract was terminated! please could you clarify??
