An individual sold his residential property located in Etobicoke. The buyer put down a $10,000.00 deposit at the time of entering into the Agreement of Purchase and Sale. On the day of closing, the buyer was not able to close and the sale did not go through. At law, the buyer would forfeit his $10,000.00 deposit to the seller for his breach of the agreement. However, the buyer refused to agree to allow the real estate brokerage firm which was holding the $10,000.00 in trust to pay it to the seller. The seller retained me to obtain the $10,000.00 deposit money for him.
