I Brokered a real estate transaction on a golf course. Buyer was to pay commission as per the purchase and sales ($65,000). Took title to property and recorded deed in August via assumpiton of note and quick claim deed. He assumed 1,396,000 and change as per what was recorded. There was a 2nd note on the property for 400,000 from an accountant that claimed money was due (it was a murder suicide, and accountant has no proof that these funds were owed) The NEW owner of the course, let loan foreclose, to wash out the 2nd note, and bid on it and won. He has not gotten financing yet for the foreclosure so now he's trying to just sell it, or it will be foreclosed on again.
I've since gone to a new real estate office, and trying to get the broker who's office the commission is due, to take legal action, but refuses to spend money on it.. He said "buy out my portion of the commission, and he'll give me permission to seek my own legal action". I've been telling him all along since Aug. to go after him, and just this week he drops this on me. I have three questions.
one, can I take legal action against the person that owes the initial fee
two, can I take legal action against my old office, for not pursuing the matter on my behalf
three. If I can take legal action against the person, can I leave my old office out of commission due to them? (about 15,000)
