A pair of realtors are accused in a lawsuit of trying to keep buyers away from a New Jersey home so they could use the place for “sexual escapades” which were caught on camera, according to a news report.
Richard and Sandra Weiner of Denville, N.J., filed a suit in Passaic County Dec. 6 alleging that former Coldwell Banker realtors Robert Lindsay and Jeannemarie Phelan intentionally priced their house in Wayne above market values so they could use the home as a love nest in late 2011 and early 2012, reports The Record of Bergen County.
“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.
Lindsay told the couple repeatedly that their house would sell for $650,000 in early 2010, the news site reports. In December 2011, they had Lindsay list the home.
Then, on Dec. 27, 2011, the home’s security cameras caught Lindsay and Phelan kissing and hugging in the kitchen. Afterward, cameras showed the pair of realtors going to the master bedroom and having sex on the bed, the suit states. The pair of realtors were spotted in the home nine more times over the following month.
In the realtors’ last visit Jan. 23, 2012, The Record reports, Sandra Weiner was checking the house’s video feeds when she saw people inside and what she thought were flashlights. The couple called police, who found Lindsay pulling up his pants when they arrived. Lindsay told officers that he and Phelan were there to prepare for an open house.
Coldwell Banker ended its affiliation with Lindsay and Phelan when the brokerage learned about the lawsuit, the newspaper reports.
Neither of the realtors could be reached by the newspaper for comment.
