Can the seller keep earnst money although it was not our fault for closing date to be extended?With a FHA loan and a "flip" this requires two appraisals, the bank did not know this and scheduled a week AFTER our closing. Frustrating for both the seller and us. They admitted fault but the seller has stated they will keep our money , we paid for both appraisals , and still no home. What can we do? So powerless. We want to call this house our home, and seller wants the profit understandably. Please help.
