What is the name of your state? California
If contract with real estate agencey expires while in contract, and buyer also cancells contract, what happens if we sign with new agent and the same buyer submits a new offer. Is there a time limit on how long the first agency has a claim on the commission from that buyer?

Read your original listing agreement. There is usually a protection period that gives your original agent the right to a commission if someone he found during your contract period decided to buy.

I'm trying really hard to read your listing agreement from here, but I just don't seem to be able to focus. Guess I'll make an appointment on monday to have my eyes checked.
