“We are happy to report that we are now successful buyers (subject to finance & inspections, of course!), and that the Contract you prepared was eventually accepted (under protest from the agents) with only one minor alteration requested by the Vendor’s lawyer, which was to limit the building permits etc warranty to 7 years. As we have inspected the property several times very carefully ourselves and everything looks original, this was an alteration we decided we could live with to get the Contract through.
You were right, we did have to stand strong & hold our ground, but we did it and are very proud of ourselves for having done so, and thankful to you for your advice & Contract.
The more we read about the unfair, unethical practices in real estate, the madder we get when an agent tries any of that stuff on us, but we didn’t really know how to get around it. You have got a great solution to start getting the message across that we won’t accept it, and we will be recommending you to anyone & everyone we come across that is in the property market.”
