I recently put a security deposit/down payment on a piece of land with a future closing date of 30June2013. Approx. 2 months ago I emailed and spoke to the person I had the deal with and backed out of the deal and he agreed to return my deposit. It has been two months and when I call him he says he will get the money to me "soon," but that has me worried. Do I need a lawyer? Also, I never signed anything saying he had the right to retain my deposit. I only signed a contract stating the terms of the agreement and closing date.
