FACTS:

A buyer makes an offer to purchase a residential property.  The seller signs acceptance of the buyer’s offer and delivers the acceptance.  However, the listing agent failed to provide her brokerage information on page 9.  The buyer’s agent counters the seller because of the missing broker information on page 9.

ISSUE:

Do the buyer and seller have a binding contract even if the brokerage information is not provided on page 9?

ANSWER:

Yes

DISCUSSION:

The buyer and seller are the only parties to the contract; agents are not parties typically.  Therefore, the buyer should proceed with opening escrow.
