Question regarding sole selling rights

This was a 16 week agreement. To terminate this agreement I had to give 28 days written notice. If a buyer was found in this 16 week period, but had not had any connection with the sole selling agents. No contracts have been exchanged either. When I sell, would i have to pay a commission to both agents?

  • Probably not, but your question does not make sense. 1. Did you terminate the agreement? 2. Did you find a buyer & if so was this before or after the termination event? Read the terms of your agreement. There is case law on this - Foxtons v Pelky-Bicknell [2008]

  • It sounds like you had two agents working on your behalf. If this is the case then this could be a joint sole agency agreement. If so you would normally have to pay the fee stated in the agreement and the agents would have already agreed how to split the fee between them (Usually 60/40 in favour of the selling agent). Sole selling rights does normally mean that any sale achieved during the period of the agency agreement will incurr a fee to the agent/s involved, even if they have had no involvement. As with all things it depends on the circumstances and terms of the agreement. have a look at the link enclosed, this may give you more information. Your agent should have explained the fees to you if they are part of the Ombudsman scheme. Any other questions let me know, I would be happy to help.
