Ugh, I called the housing broker and they have no idea who signed the contract and who is who (and they don't care to find out and inform me as well).

They do claim to know that the couple is married and shares all goods, but how would they know if they don't even know that the female is not the person on the contract: she doesn't even carry that last name!

I don't like brokers, they live up to their reputation of being lazy and deceitful.

Monique,

At the very least when this is all said and done, report your broker to: National Real Estate Lic Board. Your complaint may seem minor, but enough complaints from enough honest folk like yourself will help prevent this behavior from continuing. What a schmuck.

It's a good thing your contract is not with the broker then. :)

But is it a nice couple?

Definitely! Actually, they won another Oscar today:

I called to inform about the contract, because I still need to get a version signed in ink. The first broker I spoke to had no idea what I was talking about: all contracts are (supposed to be) signed in duplicate. I was transferred to the second broker, again: he didn't know what I was talking about. I get transferred to the last broker, she gets mad at me: she tells me that I agreed to not receiving a version signed in ink. Then she tells me that her colleagues will testify that I agreed not to receive that version, these are the two colleagues that just told me that they didn't have a clue what I was talking about!
But is it a nice couple?
Haven't met them yet, I do like to think they'll be nice

Yes, apparently the brokers do live up to the expectations.

The contract is ripped up!

I didn't even have to say a thing, the owner took out the contract said that it's ridiculous and was forced by the broker, that it is full of illegalities. Ripped it up and offered to sign a proper version. The owners weren't even aware of the changes that the broker made to the contract.

Conclusion: it was a farce created by the broker. I can go to sleep without worries now

Glad to hear it ended well.

At the same time I wonder if you can take a revenge on brokers - report them to authorities or something. Let them sweat

I wish, I'll have a look where they can be reported. But I think little can be done, they are profiting from a tight market.
