Legal Question

Asked on: 6/20/13, 11:56 am

I am a part owner with three others (tenants in common) of a valuable lot in California. I have just learnt that one of the other partners has listed the property for sale with an Agent and without my knowledge or permission. Obviously, they will need my agreement to sell if a buyer is found. But is it legal to list a property and place it on the MLS without the agreement of all the owners? What is the legal Statute that covers this? And could the brokers license be at risk? Is this malpractice? The agent has not responded to any of my calls.

(Ps. Please don’t recommend that I “seek the advice of a competent real estate attorney”, or that I exercise, get lots of sleep, use sunscreen and eat healthy food. That is so obvious as to be positively unhelpful.)
