My question involves real estate located in the State of: Utah
I have lost my trust in my real estate agent. I don't even want to return his phone calls. My husband and I signed a buyer-broker agreement when we put in a bid for a house. It was for 6 months. I understand the agreement to use him as my agent. It states that he gets 3% of any house that we buy even if it is unlisted. My girlfriend wants to sell me her place and doesn't want to go through an agent. I wouldn't mind giving my agent some money but he has not earned 3%. There have only been 2 houses he has shown me and both houses I have found myself. The bid fell through on the last house when my girlfriend just offered us her house. He has called me twice and left messages that I will be liable for a suit if I don't include him in the sale. I do not want to talk to him anymore and do not want to deal with his Real Estate Company so I will wait out the 6 months then get the house. I would like to fire him and get another agent as I hate to wait 6 months for the contract to end. Is there anyway I can do this and avoid a suit?
