    The New Jersey Real Estate Commission is investigating allegations brought by a Wayne couple that their real estate agent was using their vacant home for “sexual escapades” with a female colleague.

    Edward Rogan, spokesman for the state Department of Banking and Insurance, tells The Record the commission will determine whether agents Robert Lindsay and Jeannemarie Phelan violated any regulations and if they should have their licenses revoked.

    “At this point, we have to investigate this,” Rogan told the paper.

    The newspaper reports that Phelan was fired Monday.

    The couple, Richard and Sandra Weiner, filed suit against the agents after the agent's alleged trysts were captured on security cameras in the house.

    The Record reports the Denville couple recently sued the two agents, alleging breach of trust and fiduciary duties by them and their firm. The suit seeks compensatory damages for invasion of privacy, infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract, trespass of land and other civil counts.

    The suit claims Lindsay made a duplicate key to the house and listed it above market value to deter others from visiting.

    The two agents named in the suit could not be reached for comment.
