I know the vendor pays the comission, my concern was : Ea1 tries to sue us for lost commission, could he argue he was the one who showed us around house
In the real world of sales you get nothing for good intentions, effort or working long hours.
You get paid for closing the deal.
EA 1 has nothing to sue for.
If they did sue then there would be a spotlight of negative attention on them that would drive good business away, see Streisand effect.
