1st I put a big amount of deposit to buy a house,but my mortgage broker which is my realtor introduce to me told me that i could not get loan 3 weeks before the closeing day. then he gived us a cancellation form for releasing the deposit。
2nd the seller told me they do not want releasing the money and their attorney say because of somehomw the mortgage broker give the seller a loan commitment(i did not know abouth tis until the seller's attonrney).
3rd I keep ask my realtor to get my money back then my realtor give me his personal check and we sign a papper about when the money release he is going to take the money.
4th then my realtor realize he could not get his money back ,so he ask me to find an attorney and he wants his money back

5th my realtor told me go find a attonrney and go to a mediation later, it s seems he want me to take all the lost.

It sounds like the only good advice you've gotten is to get an attorney. Without knowing all the details, such as what your purchase contract says and what was actually provided, it will be tough for anyone on Trulia to give you any tips. Besides that, we are Realtors and Lenders, not attorneys, so anything we give you will be merely opinion and not sound legal advice.

I know that Florida has some strange laws and customs regarding loan commitments and deposits. You're best off seeking some counsel to help make sure you don't lose any additional money.

Sorry to hear about your situation and best of luck to you
