Do we have legal recourse following a short sale offer that's being treated unfairly?Made an offer on a short sale. Seller's agent submitted it to the bank with the mutually agreed upon understanding that our offer is the first and only to be considered by the bank, and back-up offers were being accepted ONLY if ours did not prove successful with the bank. 3 weeks later seller's agent says they have a "considerably higher" offer and that they're going to replace ours if we don't come up significantly. We feel this is sneaky, deceptive, and unprofessional. Do we have legal recourse? Are the seller and his agent breaking a law or rule that we can hold them accountable for?January 18 2010 - Northgate00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
