I entered into a contract with an estate agent under a joint

Customer Question

I entered into a contract with an estate agent under a joint instruction basis with my ex wife and the estate agent has written a letter to my wife's solicitor at her request suggesting that I should be accepting an offer made on a contract. I am now being threatened with going to court to get an order. Has there been a breach of contract?
