Probably not the same problem you had but funny
enough I had a boat purchase
go south recently because of the (damn) broker. I actually met the owner and we got along just fine, agreed on everything and things were really easy going but alas there was a broker in the middle extending his hand demanding his share for pretty much zero work
. The worst part was that he was demanding terms that were not acceptable to me or the seller and things got to the point where the deal went south and he lost
on the sale
and the seller just preferred not to risk getting sued by dealing directly with me etc, understandably so.
So this other "owner of record" is also still trying to sell his boat when there is a willing buyer in the market because of a useless broker. You can't make this stuff up I tell you.
