other clients who are more ready to proceed the same opportunity. If your home
is on the market, we will continue to hold the home in your name but would
expect settlement within three months from date of deposit. At the end of this
period, we would review the situation with you and we may be able to offer you
Your deposit is fully refundable at any time should you not proceed to settlement
