I'm sorry to hear of your troubles.  Best course of action, if you have already had your realtor talk to their realtor and had no luck in resolving the issue then get an attorney if you still want to buy the home.  If you want out, the seller is in breach of the contract so ask your realtor to amend the offer to end the deal and also send a cancellation and mutual release form for the sellers to sign.  You should then be able to get your earnest money back so long as it is deposited with a real estate broker and not the seller.  If this was a for sale by owner then you may need an attorney to get your earnest money back.  Good luck to you!

You can terminate the deal and try to get the EM, but if you really want to sell it work with them, but try to get the EM released to you and made nonrefundable.
