What's the implication of an expired Buyer Representation AgreementHi all, I'm writing on behalf of a friend who is just now closing on a house as a buyer. The situation is this:1. The buyer's agent has in several ways violated her duties to the buyer. The most egregious of these was asking the seller for an additional .5% commission in the email presenting the buyer's offer. This was done in the context of her describing how great the offer was (over asking, 40% down, close in 30 days etc) and describing how excited the buyers were.2. My friend just discovered that his agent had, by error, put the expiration date for the Buyer Representation Agreement at a date well before she showed them the property.My question is what the implication of this is. Seems like some possibilities are:1. The buyer's agent had no duty to protect the buyer's interests in the transaction.2. The buyer's agent isn't entitled to any commission.What comes of all this? Clearly, the agent acted in her own self interest in touting how great a deal the sellers were getting and asking for more money as a result of that. Does her incompetence in erroneously dating the contract get her out of responsibility for that? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.August 10 2011 - Castro Valley00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
