Hi, do both owners of a house need to sign an agreement with realtor if the house deed is in both of their names?

I am an agent in Westchester NY. Not sure what you mean by the home says "under contract" in the listing agreement. The listing agreement is the contract between the seller and real estate agent. If you mean the listing information on the internet then it means there is a buyer in place and contracts are fully executed.

Usually there is an end date.... a specific date, not 1-2-3 months in the contracts I see.
Otherwise as you indicate there could be room for negotiation. Will it matter?

Firstly, I'd say you should consult an attorney. This sounds like a big deal that should be handled by a professional.

Seems my EX and the Agent have intentionally left me off since it was put on the market in 2009. This Agent has been switching to different offices and my EX stays with him where ever he moves to opposed to getting a different Agent to work with. I contacted him today, asked to meet, he was reluctant. We set a time, he tried to cancel. Finally met but not at the office but a Burger pace. He did not have the contract. So I went to the office about 2 miles away to get it myself. They called the Agent about it. He wold not come in but said he'd hand deliver it to me Monday.
I wanted the Manage in on this all. She came and a can of worms was open with illegal behavior for a R.E Agent to do. She found this Agent signed his name to things that only a Branch Manager should sign off on, he made a contract without my name on it and has done several of them. He violated serious MLS and R.E Laws. He's supposed to check with her before he puts anything listings online for her to review, he did not. He did not even have her sign the contract or show it to her to review or otherwise she would have seen that an Owners name was left off. She was very very upset and shaken because of these unethical actions. I'm told that all of them can get in trouble including my Ex because our divorce Agreement has that BOTH of us are to consult on every part of this. My EX knowingly avoided putting me on the contract or contacting me about any of the selling procedures. My head was spinning. I could sense the Managers shock and panic because it's a serious offense and threat to all of their licenses. I don't have a mean bone in my body and feel terrible for her but not for my EX's intentional actions or his Agent's. That Agent should know better.

13% ?? That just sounds like something that is beyond comprehension. You can do either of your options. One thing I can say is in this business commission rates are negotiable. Did the Agent tell you what the commission rate was before you signed the papers? ... more

Debra (Debbie) Rose answered:
Lucky - just to clarify - Lynn's response left off one very important part......the protection period only applies if the home is not relisted............and in many cases, any buyer's agent who showed the home, might have to register that buyer's name via certified mail. That may vary from area to area.

Once the home is relisted, minus any contingencies to the contrary, there is no protection for any agent who showed the home.
