The next question, though, is what you want. If it's return of the earnest money, check with your Realtor on the language needed in the letter to satisfy whoever is holding your money in escrow. I don't know, but it may be that the language you were presented with--even though it's not accurate--is the standard language used in such letters. That is, while it wasn't your idea to terminate the purchase, you now might be agreeable to it.
If you want to continue pursuing the property--and blocking anyone else from buying--there are some strategies you can use. A good real estate lawyer can advise you on those.
So: Determine what your goal is. Then work with your Realtor and, if appropriate, a lawyer. And there's always HUD as well as state agencies dealing with discrimination.
Hope that helps.
If the deposit isnâ€™t that large just sitting tight and having your realtor notify the seller you still intend to purchase will shed some light on the race question.
