I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.

You said they served you with a civil suit already - why? Is the deposit you have from them a security deposit, or was it a down payment toward the total purchase price? Also, does the contract say anything about who is required to maintain the property before the sale is final?
