Do you have an answer

I am sorry for the delay, had to be out of office for a bit..

.

Unfortunately, the contract is legally binding as soon as you sign it. This is the case whether you have actually taken physical possession of the RV or not. Unless there is some type of "escape clause" in the purchase contract, then there is none implied by law.

.

With that said, if title hasn't been transferred to you, then if you breached the contract and refused to continue on, the seller might be willing to just retain the deposit as liquidated damages rather than incurring the time and expense of filing suit against you in court for breach of contract.

.

I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...

thanks

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
