Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.Do you have a written agreement for how long the vehicle would be available? If so, the terms of the agreement set forth how long you are to hold the car for the intended buyer.If there is no written agreement, was there an oral agreement about how long you would hold the car for the intended buyer. If not, then the vehicle would be held for a reasonable amount of time.I would call and write the buyer a certain date to buy the car and if not, his deposit gets returned and you sell the car to someone else. If the agreement was that the deposit would be refundable if the sale does not go through, you have to give the money back. If the agreement did not mention anything about refunding the deposit, you still have to return it.
