Shhhiknow, Both Buyer and Seller in Gloucester, VA

Owner vs. Property Manager - URGENT Advice needed please!

Asked by Shhhiknow, Gloucester, VA Wed Apr 22, 2009

I've lived in Germany since 2003 & have a property mgr handling my property. We are in dispute over them allowing the previous tenants depart w/their full deposit after damaging my property. The Mgr's excuse was her inspector felt threatened by the tenant. They have acknowledged responsibility/fault, fired that inspector &, in Jan., promised reimbursement but didn't say how & I've received $0 to date. When I expressed in Jan. my interest in selling they stated if the current tenants chose to purchase they would require only 3%; otherwise, 6% if they had to find a buyer. I requested in Jan that they approach the tenants to determine their interest in buying. They didn't do it until March & were told had they known I wanted to sell they wouldn't have put a contract on a house the previuos week. Now, since I've threatened legal action, they want the full 6% if the tenants purchase and they will deduct what they owe for the damages from their commission. Any guidance is appreciated.

I would hire an attorney to handle this for you, especially since you are in Germany. I would recommend Richard Gordan or Allen Tanner, Phone: (757) 595-9000
