Well, bottom line is that an attorney will tell you your next move. If no mutual release is signed,the earnest money should still be in the trust account. It will sit there. Where is your realtor? And your realtor's manager? And, I repeat, you may lose the money to an attorney,but you stand to lose that without one,too. Pls understand that,as Realtors, we CANNOT give legal advice. Every Realtor who has responded has,essentially, told you this. I, for one, am sorry this has happened to you. But, now you need legal advice. Also, i donâ€™t know how this escaped your Realtor/Broker. If your Realtor was also the seller's realtor, you DO need your own attorney, because possibility is that this realtor was representing seller, not you.
