Strange - I couldn't add more - anyway - I just bought 60 acres in East Texas. As I completed the sale, I realized my realtor had lied to me.
Back story - my realtor happened to be the listing agent for an acreage I liked. He explained the issues associated with that, and I was ok with it. When I went to negotiate the deal, he told me mineral rights were sold years and years ago, and no one knew to who.
I was upset, as I did not want to buy a property without total control, but decided my wife loved it, so Id risk it.
As we completed the deal I off-hand asked him, did you ever hear who might have bought the mineral rights, and he looked at me straight in the eye and said "Mrs. **** owns them." I was flabbergasted and was so shocked I could barely think straight.
He was enough of an accomplished liar, that he never put it in writing. Is there any recourse? Any board I can complain to, to at least get his name in the mud for this ridiculous crap.
Does anyone else hate realtors?
