Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear this.
Are you saying there was a clear offer and an acceptance of that offer and now the realtor wants to walk away from the deal?
The realtor knows better. He is assuming that you do not. But when there is an offer and an acceptance there is a binding contract. He does not get to say he is changing his mind. Unless you agree to terminate the contract the contract is binding and continues on regardless of what he wants. When there are two parties to a contract one party can most assuredly not unilaterally change the provisions of the contract unless the others consent.So not only do you not have to return the deposit but you do not have to agree to let this person walk away.Do you see what I mean?
Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
