We started negotiations to buy a property which ended in a stalemate and the offer was rejected based on price. Our finance was pre approved, dates were all standard (7 days P&I, 14 days finance, 30 days settlement) and the sellers agreed on all conditions except they wanted a higher price. Price was above what buyers were willing to pay, thus it still being on the market 2 months after initial listing. The property has since been taken off market with the previous agent and listed with a new one, at a price lower than our rejected offer. We're keen to make another offer but would like to understand if the sellers would be obligated to pay double commission as this may prevent a successful second round. Assuming the contract with the first agent has ended, do they have any claim to commission because we dealt with them in the past? We visited the inspection based on listing on realestate.com and had no prior dealings with that agent (nor would I ever want to deal with her again, she was very rude). From my perspective the first transaction ended unsuccessfully so our business with her is complete but I'm not clear on the legalities. Appreciate any information or suggestions on this.
