Skysail Condominiums - Soleil Group Complaint - Won't Return Deposit Monies If Unable To Close For Whatever Reason
NEW BERN, NORTH CAROLINA -- I signed a contract with Skysail Condominiums to purchase a condo in 2006. I was unable to obtain a mortgage because I a lost my job when my previous employer closed. My husband just came off active duty and just got a job working for TSA part time. We don't qualify for a mortgage and they are not returning our earnest money deposit of $32,000. We desperately need that money back for our financial situation is precarious. I have contacted them, their legal counsel, the owner of the Soleil group and they are all ignoring me. They want me to go to arbitration in their county, with an arbitrator of their choice and pay for the cost of this--which I don't have the money to do in order to get my deposit back.
The contract clearly states that if I am unable to obtain a pre-qualification letter they have to return my deposit and they have refuse to. Please help me get my deposit back.
