TSCHUDY v. SILER.
42054.
PANNELL, Judge.
Action for brokerage commission. Fulton Civil Court. Before Judge Wright.
1. Where an alleged brokerage contract for the sale of a business attempts to set forth the terms of sale as to the amount to be paid and the amount of commission to be paid the broker and the owner agrees "to pay the agent his commission if [he] sell this business during his listing or to any of his prospects after the listing expires," such agreement to pay commissions must be interpreted in the light of the terms of sale set forth, and confined to a sale on those terms.
Vandiver, 37 Ga. App. 656 (141 SE 332); Howard v. Sills & Purvis, 154 Ga. 430 (114 SE 580); Atlanta Realty Co. v. Campion, 94 Ga. App. 136 (93 SE2d 781)) or to a prospect obtained by the broker on the terms provided. An allegation that the business was sold to a prospect obtained by the broker does not constitute such an allegation nor does an allegation that the broker "has fully completed all duties devolving upon him as such business broker." The trial court erred in over-ruling the defendant's general demurrer to the petition.
Fred W. Minter, for appellee.
John L. Respess, Jr., for appellant.
SUBMITTED JUNE 6, 1966 -- DECIDED SEPTEMBER 6, 1966 -- REHEARING DENIED SEPTEMBER 22, 1966.
