UPDATE: Scheming Real Estate Broker Denied Multi-Million Dollar Commission Because of Lack of Enforceable Agreement
Seeing an opportunity, a scheming real estate broker claimed he was entitled to a multi-million-dollar commission.
December 10, 2020- Seeing an opportunity, a scheming real estate broker claimed he was entitled to a multi-million-dollar commission after a company contracted with a landowner to construct a large retail facility in Colorado Springs. The broker did so despite not having made the proper disclosures to either party as required by Colorado law. The El Paso County District Court saw through the broker’s shenanigans and entered judgment for the landlord. The Court found that the landlord did not owe the broker anything. The Court further found the landlord was entitled to its attorney’s fees. The landlord was represented by Murray Weiner of Mulliken Law.
