Customer Question
I enter into a...

I enter into a contract on a home in North Carolina and was supposed to close next week however the builder placed a well right in the way of my path of travel for my motorhome. They insist that the City of Stanley made them place it there however it rendered the home useless to me in that it was my plan all along to put my motorhome there. I even paid for options to accommodate my motorhome. Now they are refusing to give me back any of the deposit money I put on the home which totals about 5k. Do I have a chance of getting anything back or am I just out the money?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the RV?

North Carolina the RV is a 2007

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No

Was the site plan included as part of the contract?

Did it require your approval to make changes, such as relocating a well?

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.
