  1. Buying property in Germany

    Hello,      I wish someone could kindly advise on my case.      After rounds of negotiation, my offer on the apartment was (verbally) accepted by the owner through the broker. The broker then sent e a notar order form which required me to sign and return. But before i had the chance to return the form, the broker called me again telling me that the owner has accepted a higher offer from the other party. I thought, both the owner and the broker shall honor what was negotiated and promised. Can i file a complaint to the broker in this case? This goes against my experience buying property in UK. Normally, once the owner agreed on the price, the broker'd stop any negotiations with other interested parties. On the other hand, i was not asked to put down a reservation fee 0.5 -1% of the agreed purchase price, was it normal not asked to?       cheers Mark
