Legal Question in Consumer Law in Florida

We talked with a dealership about buying a car. We gave a deposit check to them.

But we did not sign a purchase agreement nor sign any loan documents.

We were going to do that when we came back in a couple days to finish the paperwork and pick up the car.

Within 15 hrs later we called the sales mgr and told him we changed our mind.

We asked that he shred the deposit check, which he said he would.

So all seemed fine and the purchase of the vehile terminated.

Next day, the check was processed at our bank.

Do we have the legal right to ask for our deposit back?

This is a great case for you if you did not sign any agreement to purchase a vehilce and or hold a vehicle. Make sure on this

If not agreement, sent them a civil theft letter and if they do not response see me. Also, law requries an written agreement for a deposit.
