My question involves real estate located in the State of: CO
I went under contract on 11/26/2012 on a residential property in Colorado. The real estate contract stated that the seller and buyer (me) would split the cost of a structural engineer to examine some basement issues, with no contingencies. We both paid $175 towards the inspection. I have since terminated my contract on the home and did so before the termination for inspection date. The seller is now refusing to refund my $4500 earnest money, they will only agree to return $4325 (earnest minus their half of inspection). They are claiming I canceled the contract in bad faith. There was no 'bad faith' on my part, I terminated within the guidelines of the contract. Any advice on what I can do to get my full earnest back?
