Do I get earnest money back in short sale offer if no time contingency on addendum?We made an offer on a short sale and the seller has accepted. Sellers said they were close to being able to cover the deficiency and were going to try and not do a short sale, but we signed a SS addendum. Our agent did not put a bank approval contingency or closing date contingency on the SS addendum, however we do have a Nov 15 closing contingency on the regular offer.It is now looking like this will definitely be a short sale, and we are not crazy about waiting this out and want to keep looking at other properties.My question is if we will be able to get our earnest money back since there are no contingencies in the SS addendum around timing for bank approval. Can we back out at any time and get a refund before the bank accepts? Could we at least back out after Nov 15 and get our money back, since that is the regular offer portion?
