Legal Q&A | Must a dual agent disclose the buyer’s intended use of the property?
QUESTION: I have just received an inquiry on one of my listings from an adorable little man named Bushy Evergreen. Bushy is helping his employer, Kris Kringle and his wife, Jessica, find a little get-away where they can relax when their seasonal business slows down after the holidays. Bushy has done some research on my listing and he says it would be perfect for the Kringles and their reindeer. He has power of attorney from the Kringles giving him the authority to hire me and purchase the property on their behalf. My question is, do I have to disclose to my seller client, a Mr. Scrooge, the fact that the Kringles plan to bring their reindeer with them? The reason I ask is because the property the seller has listed with me is next door to his residence, and I know him to be a somewhat disagreeable sort of guy. When I told Bushy that I wasn’t sure if the seller would be okay with a herd of reindeer living right beside him, he scrunched up his cute little nose and said he’d rather me keep quiet about them.
