  1. Hi Jack, Just trying to buy a house and running into situations where we make a full price offer and it gets turned down or in one situation the description of the seller's house it stated " Up to $20,000 cash back/ upgrade allowance. Seller will pay buyer at the close of escrow." But then the seller said that it was only available if the buyer paid $20,000 above the price that the house was listed at. I think it's just that real estate has become what used car dealers used to be. Joe
  2. Hi Retired, Doesn't the seller sign the document that lists his/her house for sale? I'm pretty sure when I sold my house I signed a document allowing it to be listed on MLS for $xxx.xx. Now there are even sites like Zillow.com and others where parties can have their house listed. Wouldn't that suffice for the seller's signature and simply need a buyer for full price to submit their agreement to pay that amount? Would that not comply with the statute of frauds?
  3. I'm obviously not familiar with California Real estate law but I've been told numerous times by RE Agents that the listing of a house for sale in the MLS or on Zillow or Realtor.com is NOT an offer to sell that house. None of them can tell me what it is but they contend that only a prospective buyer of the house can start the contract procedure by making an "Offer" to buy the house. And even if the prospective buyer offers the full price requested in the listing, the seller may still decide not to sell the house to them (not for any covered discriminatory reasons, but simply because they no think they can get more money). This seems to fly in the face of all other retail sales laws. Would this not be like a car dealership putting a car on the lot for $28,895.00 and then telling a buyer who offers $28,895.00 that they do not want to sell the car to them? Is there some California statute that states that a property listed for sale by a seller at a specific price is not an offer to sell said property? Joe
  4. pg, I belong to a private club where both parties are also members. The officers of the club are being told (I'm not sure who came up with this idea) that if the restrained person is in the club, say having dinner, and the protected person enters the club, the restrained person is to be escorted out of the club.
  5. adjusterjack, that situation would be clear. The question is if the restrained person is already in the club having dinner. If the protected person then enters the club, say to have dinner with a group of other members, is the restrained person legally obligated to get up and leave if the protected person enters the club?
  6. If the Protected Person enters a private club, to which the Restrained Person is also a member, must the Restrained Person leave, or be asked to leave?
