Suit: NJ Real Estate Agents Used Unsold Home for Sex

Guess what security cameras saw?

NorthJersey.com reports on a lawsuit in which property owners say the real estate agents used their home for sex—even propping the asking price artificially high so the agents could keep having their naughty times.

Richard and Sandra Weiner of Denville have filed suit in state Superior Court in Passaic County alleging breach of trust and fiduciary duties against Coldwell Banker of Madison and Wayne residents, and Coldwell agents, Robert Lindsay and Jeannemarie Phelan. The Weiners are seeking compensatory damages for invasion of privacy, infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract, trespass of land and other civil counts.

“Defendants Coldwell and Lindsay were engaged by the Weiners to market and sell their home in Wayne, New Jersey. Instead, Lindsay and Phelan, through Lindsay’s illegal and dishonest acts, used the Weiners’ home as their play pad to have sexual relations in the Weiners’ bedroom, among other places in the home,” the suit states.

The lawsuit alleges that along with making a duplicate key to the house, Lindsay “intentionally listed the house above market value to avoid Realtor traffic in the home while he and Phelan carried on their trysts.”

And, uh, apparently security cameras caught it all.
