Buyer put down $3000 on a $150k purchase. After two months, she withdrew her offer (via email to me) because she didn't think I could get clear title. I put the house back on the market. Days later, she finally asked the title company (which she hired) about the title. They assured her that the title was OK. Now I've accepted another (better) offer. She won't agree to release the earnest money deposit. I've wasted two months (and many expenses) on this buyer. Aren't I entitled to the earnest money deposit? Since she won't agree to release it, what do I have to do? Can the title company release the money to her without my permission? How does interpleading work?
