Well, read the contract.
Not having that particular contract in front of me, I can only speak in generalities.
If the contract is “contingent upon buyer obtaining blah blah blah satisfactory financing”, and they can’t find it, they get their earnest money back, and that’s that.
If the contract has NO financing contingency on it, the buyer DOES NOT get the earnest money deposit back, and that’s that.
That covers 98% or so, of times.
