Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If the deposit and the payments were to go to the developer once they were done as part of the payment for the apartment, then if they are basically admitting that they are in breach and won't be able to perform under the contract, then you would be entitled to a refund of those funds since the developer is in the wrong.
But I would carefully review your original contract regarding those payments and what it says happens in the event of breach by the seller. Also closely read their form and do not sign it until you confirm with them, preferably in writing, that instead of you suing them for breach of contract, they agree to just release that money back to you.
Ok then I might consider suing the developer for any interest you have paid as damages as well as your deposit back because but for the contract, you would never have taken out the loan..
