Re: How to Cancel a Contract With a Realtor
but to the basic question of: can you cancel the contract?
Unless both parties agree to a cancellation or you have some legal justification to cancel the contract, no, you cannot cancel the contract.
as a protection, when you signed the contract, you should have specifically excluded these people from being included under the contract as a buyer. If you didn't, I suspect you need to read the contract very thoroughly as it quite likely will require you to pay a commission in this situation.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
