The following is for entertainment purposes only.
Of course, what we do know is anytime anyone enters into an agreement with a lawyer, they are at risk.
Whenever a David and Goliath event presents itself, the local media is your friend. Yep, they can even get Bank of America to stop misdirected foreclosure dead in their track. There are, however, two groups even the media will not expose. Attorneys are not one of those.
No, your plan of action regarding contacting area real estate professionals will have no effect and will never actually reach the individual agent. It could, quite honestly, back fire.
You do have access to social media and perhaps accurately sharing your experience can provide an educational opportunity for others or at the very least, an entertainment outlet.
End of entertainment section.
You are in a real mess and I truly hope you prevail and are able to re-coop your costs.
Best of success to you.
This is most unfortunate......at some point it will be important to cut your losses and stop the bleeding. In our opinion being the provider of information about your bad experience has the potential of causing your issue to become even more problematic.
My sense is that most realtors will view this as someone that is very angry venting their frustrations and dismiss it.....
If things continue as they have, unfortunately the only winner will likely be your attorney.
Sorry for the issues you are having.
First of all.to answer your question........to be blunt, no.... agents would not make use of notes explaining your experience. It's your personal experience.
Whatever issues you are having with the seller might not occur with a new buyer.
That being said, I understad you're frustrated, and are looking for an outlet to vent this frustration.
Le'ts talk about your "issue".
Since I am in your area, and know how our process works..............what exactly is the seller doing to harrass you? What kind of "legal battle" is he attempting.....on what is it based?
Were you still within your contract inspection time period?
Does the seller think your repair requests are not structural in nature?
Exactly what is being disputed?
With more specific information, perhaps I can be of help.
I won't and can't give you legal advice (and you have an attoney for that already) , but maybe I can help clarify things a bit.
Is it ethical for lawyers to use their own firm to litigate their case.
Should home buyers/sellers need special protection in contract to cover this scenario. Put in contract that conter party covers all litigation costs if the other parts is a lawyer.
Have your lawyer explore the exposure that the seller/lawyer is creating. Then--assuming the seller is overstepping his ethical bounds--ask your lawyer about this strategy: A direct communication to the seller suggesting that he either stop his actions or you will respond in kind. And if those actions continue, you go to the local bar association and exercise your rights as an individual who's being exposed to unethical legal behavior.
Hope that helps.
Lawyers who abuse their power may face some consequences for doing so. I'm not a lawyer, but I'd encourage you to ask yours about a counter suit for harassment and misuse of the legal system. You may be entitled to collect the legal fees for defending yourself against frivolous actions. If nothing else, it may shut him down from further bothering you. I will keep your situation in mind should I come up against a similar scenario. Sorry for your difficulties.
