Property dealer harassing us

Posted by Ashish Bansal

Respected Legal Experts,

I had a small property which i sold through a property dealer X, the deal went ok, for which property dealer X took his commission.

My intention was to purchase a bigger property. So I asked the same property dealer to find more properties for purchasing.
He showed few properties to me, but none of us suited me on various reasons.

Later, I enlisted through another property dealer Y & able to strike deal for a property, for which agreement to sale was signed with commissions to this Y property dealer.

But, now the previous property dealer X have started harassing us , by saying he has made efforts for showing you various properties & you must include him in this new deal. We refused his contention that you are not involved in this deal.

Then, we showed us various phone recording which he was secretly recording with us for all our conversations without our knowledge. Even when he used to take us around to show some properties, he would be secretly recording our conversation in his phone.

In one such recording, he showed he made offer to show same property (now under agreement) to my father once , who he is senior citizen & retired , but my father declined at that time as not interested in the area without even agreeing to see the property.
All real dealings were done by me & he never mentioned that property to me ever & neither showed nor struck a deal for the same.

Now, This property dealer X has been harassing & threatening us. he comes to our & fight us . Later, he telephoned my father to put pressures on him by tricking him to admit that he refered the property. Then he got another person Z (who is another property dealer in his partner) to talk to my mother with soft intimidations & pressure demands, which are pure illegal & extortion demands

So, i sent this X a WhatsApp message that he must stop harassing us & especially if he telephoned or contacted my aged parents , i will lodge a police complaint against him. I thought matter is over & did not lodged an actual complaint.

Now, this X & Z have sent us a legal notice for demand , where he repeats his baseless demand & this time he says that he showed us the property & same were referred in recordings, asking 2% demand for entire sale claim, with 1% for him & 1% for his partner Z.

What action, can i take against him ?
1. is his act of phone recordings against our knowledge comes under breach of privacy & under what sections of criminal acts ?
2. Can i lodge a police complaint now , when i merely sent him warning earlier but desisted filing one in actual. And now he has sent us a legal notice
3. Does Legal notice needs a reply or it can be best ignored as well.
4. what if he proceeds to file a civil or complaint case against us, just merely to harass us for not meeting us illegal demands.
