1. Dear Vilita, I regret to say that once Agency A introduced you to this buyer, then they are entitled to a fee if you go ahead and complete a sale with the Buyer. Essentially, once you complete a sale with a person introduced by the AGency, then a liability to pay the Agency a fee arises. I know this is not the answer you want to hear. However, the law protects Agency A once they introduced the buyer you go ahead and sell it to. So, here, you have a liability to pay a fee to both agencies. However, I would advise you to negotiate with both agencies and seek a reduction in the fee payable to each. Ultimately, it is the same buyer, even if both agencies now think they are due a full fee.
