Schaffter v. Creative Capital Leasing Group, D047364

In a contract claim related to a real estate transaction, judgment in favor of plaintiffs is affirmed over claims of error that: 1) the court erred by finding defendant defaulted under various agreements with third parties to purchase condominiums, thereby triggering its responsibility under a Buyer Broker Compensation Contract to pay it commissions; 2) there was no default because the developers pursued no damages against defendant and opted to cancel the agreements; 3) the Buyer Broker Contract and identical contract with plaintiff's assignor are void because they did not contain a date certain for their termination; and 4) assignment of rights to commissions is void because it was made prematurely.
