I am all for discussion so it is fine to disagree. But, what would you be able to do more then the listing agent or any other agent that would provide this person with clear title? or any of the other issues, are you implying that the listing agent and the bank could/would sell this house with title issues and hide that from the buyer?
I think not.
Any person buying a house should have an attorey on their side, so, even in a dual agency situation, the buyer has representation and attorney would address the title issues to protect the client.

There is no reason for you to contact another agent, and in a foreclosure all you are doing is adding another string to the line of communication. ( but do so if you feel the need )
There is absolutely no reason for you not to contact the listing agent agency on this and get in the game.
There is nothing that a so called "buyers agent" can do for you that will get you this house or change anything in price or communication or anything. zero, zip, nada.
I am not in this area, but if you have questions regarding foreclosures and contacting the agency feel free to email or call me and I will help you out. No referral, no nothing, just answers.
For agents to post matter-of-factly to home buyers that they need to contact a buyers agent is wrong.
In the State of NJ we are all Buyers / Listing / Dual agents until designated.
Especially when there is nothing that a so called "buyers agent" can do differently for any home buyer.
With banks problems today becoming our problems it is quite an experience to make sure these deals go off smoothly. An experienced agent whether listing or buyers will work hard to smooth the transaation. I close my foreclosures in 30 days or less. I hear all these horror stories lasting 60 even 90 days and then come to find out it's because some agents try to close these as normal transactions. Sometimes we get lucky but most often there are fires to put out and knowing the processes and why mortgage companies want more info because of deed changes or banks require release of monies. It is nuts and can sometimes drive you nuts.
It is experience not a buyers agent or listing agent who is better to work with. Be assured a bank will have an attorney and the contract itself up front is very important to get right. The first time. Avoid extensions. Avoid changing attorneys. Avoid changing mortgage companies
Knowing this and much more wil help your transaction go smoothly. There is nothing worse than trying to get an appraisal or home inspection done when the gas or elec or water co will not turn the water on because of money owed.
Just interview your agents choose wisely and buy! Ask how your agent representing you will present your offer.
