Question as to what triggers a procuring clause?I on my own, found a listing on a "zillow-like" website and contacted the listing agent for a home previewing. He was out of town and the secretary told me she would find of his employees to show me the house. After the showing, I express an interest in writing up an offer, but from an indepdent agent of my choosing that doesn't work for this real estate company. I am told essentially because of the "procuring cause", I'm stuck with the employee. Does this mean I can't get my own represenation (aka buying agent)? To buy the home, I would have to be in a dual agency situation, in which the company would represent both sides? Given that I signed nothing, was not told of this arrangement would be triggered by a home showing, found the house from the listing agent's listing on a website on my own, originally tried to contact the listing agent and would have offered regardless of who did the home tour this doesn't seem fair!
