I'm watching for answers here. I am in the same predicament only I am disabled and cannot work at all.

Foreclosure proceedings are scheduled and there is nothing I can do as I am still on only emergency spousal support that does not cover all of my expenses. ... more

Kaye, even if earnest money was supposed to be collected ( it is not mandatory unless mentioned in the contract), the buyers would have been able to have it returned to them since they did not have the funds to close. Most contracts are written so that the sale is contingent on the buyer being able to obtain a mortgage. ... more
