Dual agency is legal in Arizona, but not all states. I have long said dual agency should be illegal everywhere. I challenge anyone who supports the dual agency concept to tell me how they would have handled this.
You represent buyer and seller on a short sale. Buyer clearly believes that the seller should be paying to have a piece and landscaping removed and a pool repaired before closing or they will just let it foreclose. They believe they are in their right to ask for these repairs and want the agent to pay for them if the seller cannot.
The seller believes that the items are satisfactory and refuse to make the requested changes, but wants to avoid foreclosure which is less than a week away.
If you represent both, who do you represent here. One of them is NOT going to be happy with you or you are taking a commissionectomy.
