Asked in Real Estate Law for Florida

Q: Rogue trustees. That is my retirement property. I found it and got this realtor to close deal. She is aware of them.

I spoke to her and told he I had no intention of selling the property but I was stuck in CA because of trustee issues. Property is in hernando county. She don't care just wants commission and said market hot and she can sell it. But for me she wouldnt have gotten first sale to me commission as it was a private sale not listed.

Trustees are verifiable not trustworthy. If she lists property and is told by trustee I will have a chance to come back there and I told her i was going to return why would she take listing? If she gets offer and I refuse it then does she get paid commission anyway? Who pays for advertising property? Also its A manufactured house and not on permenant foundation so is it true banks do not want to lend on such things? We paid all cash. 165k. I am a senior and a very abused beneficiary in every aspect of law. They just cut my income 1k a month before doing this so I would not have funds for legal representation. Knowledge is power.Thankyou for sharing.

A: This sounds like an issue that may require more than a web post to give you a good answer, but it appears that you are the beneficiary of a trust and you are not happy with the trustee, in which case, I would recommend you take action to remove the trustee before entering into any contract or listing agreement. You would be best advised to schedule a free consultation with an attorney to ask some additional questions and give you better guidance. Best of Luck! Jennifer
