Settlement of Real Estate Sales Contract Dispute

January 2010

Douglas Hargett represented two homeowners in an action to enforce a Real Estate Sales Contract entered into by a buyer who agreed to purchase their home for a substantial amount. After entering into the contract, the buyer failed to make the required deposit of earnest money into the real estate agent's escrow account and refused to close on the purchase of the client's property. Douglas negotiated a successful settlement in favor of the clients, which required the full payment of a substantial sum of earnest money and all of the client's attorneys' fees and costs without having to file a lawsuit.
