Legal Question in Real Estate Law in Utah

We put an offer on a lot but the realtor put in all these conditions that we did not ask for. Its a flag lot for a very cheap price. We were prepared to pull all the lines from the street but the realtor asked the seller to pull the lines. When the seller turned down our offer the realtor didn't respond to him for 3 days so the seller thought we didn't want it. He got another offer and took it. The lot price was 33,000. All the lots in this area are around 80,000. Since the realtor put in these conditions without our knowledge can we sue?

Did you sign a blank earnest money offer? Otherwise the conditions should have been in the offer you signed. If the realtor added conditions without your knowledge and after you signed the earnest money agreement you can and should notify the Dept of Real Estate and file suit.

If the conditions were in the offer you signed, and you did not read them you have to take responsibility for your failure to read it.
