Private purchase of a property
Hi, I have a question regarding the purchasing of a property by going direct to the seller. We were in the process of purchasing a property that was with a sole agent. The transaction fell through and the seller pulled out of the deal. The seller subsequently took the property off the market for a 6 month period. We then approached the seller directly and asked if he would be still interested in selling the property and if so would he be willing to sell privately. The question I have is as follows :- Would the seller be in a position to legally sell directly to a purchaser that had previously come through a sole agent and if so what is the period that the seller would have to keep the property off the market before he could be in a position to sell privately? Many thanks in advance!
