If finance co denies loan, does dealer have to return deposit

Asbury Park, NJ |

I attempted to get a loan on a car, left $800 deposit, if loan was denied, does the dealer have to return my deposit?

  1. Probably. Depends on the contract and what the money was for. Was it a deposit or an application fee, for example


  2. Did you sign a contract with the dealer to buy a car? Was your purchase of a car contingent on your getting a loan? You should consult with a lawyer and have all written agreements that you and the dealer signed for your lawyer to review.
