So, it is pretty clear that you should consult with an attorney as you already have but should the agent be held liable is the question. After some objective deliberation I am going to say YES. But, the seller is the one who had no legal rights to enter the agreement and should have never sold the home to begin with. Seems like an unlikely place to get any money so you are turnign to the agent. Not that uncommon.....I am intersested to see how this turns out John.
