Legal Q&A | Are All Sellers Required to Acknowledge Receipt of the Due Diligence Fee?

QUESTION: My firm listed a property for sale for a husband and wife. After the property went under contract, I received a due diligence check from the buyer’s agent. I gave that agent the “listing agent acknowledgement” which confirmed my receipt of that fee. The next day, one of the sellers (the wife) picked up the check at my office and signed the “seller acknowledgement” portion of page 15.

The coordinator is now insisting that the husband-seller also needs to sign the seller acknowledgement. Is she correct?
