The seller and agent execute a one-year listing agreement. After three months, the seller wants to unilaterally cancel the listing agreement because she says she is unhappy with the agent and thinks that more should be done to market the property.
Can the seller unilaterally cancel the listing agreement?
No. A listing agreement is a binding bilateral contract between the listing brokerage and the seller. Any cancellation of the listing agreement requires the consent of both the seller and the listing broker, unless the listing agent has materially breached the agreement.
