Did this transaction not involve a title company that held the funds in earnest? If so, you should speak directly to the escrow officer at the title company. Do you not have a Realtor that represented you in the intended purchase? His/her job is to advise you in this matter. The invaluable services provided by a Realtor to a buyer in a purchase transaction extend far beyond the home selection process.
What is a reasonable time frame for the refund all depends on the parties involved in the transaction. Make your demands in writing, record all responses, provide a deadline, and consider getting your own attorney if your demands are not responded to in a satisfactory manner.
