This is why you need an agent representing you.

If you are working with an agent he/she will provide you with all information. If you do not have an agent you need to get one immediately before you loose completely. The key question is: did the listing agent submit your offer to the bank? If he/she did not - bank does not know that you exist. If your offer was submitted, your agent has to make listing agent verify that lender/bank is looking at it - they often loose documents. Good luck!

If it was not retained as a Back-up Offer, then you should resubmit the Purchase Contract as soon as possible.
I assume you are working with an agent; they should be able to help you in both cases.
