I did hear that Pinn Bros filed bankruptcy, but please check with them or your real estate attorney to find out exactly what they are doing with your deposit.
I have a friend who does engineering work for them sometimes and his office is in the same
building on Saratoga Ave. I will try to reach him and see if he has any info on the project and
any other problems they may have. You can also check county records as mechanic liens
are recorded. They also should be licensed with the State of California so you can also check
with them. The project also most likely was sent to the Department of Real Estate for approval
and they may be able to help too. Did you put op a good faith deposit? If so you may check on the
status of that and also look at your contract and read it carefully to make sure you understand its language
and what your remedies are. You may end up needing a good real estate attorney to advise you also
depending on what you find out. If you need any help I would be happy to assist you.
