Token advance amount not returned

(Querist) 26 January 2022 This query is : Resolved 
We liked a villa and dealing was done through agent and builder manager. According to the Bank details given by them I transferred Rs 50000 as token advance to Property owner to confirm our genuinity. Before transferring they promised us on verbal agreement that amount will be returned if we are unable to proceed due to any reasons. But even after fund transfer they did not provide us owners contact details and asked to deposit 50k more and later 2 lakh to get it done on stamp paper .and then it was 5 lakh . We felt there was no transparency in the dealing and also due to delay in sale of one of our property we called off the deal within 10 days of amount transfer. They even took our bank details to return token advance amount. But it’s been more than a month and they have blocked our phone numbers and not responding well and putting the blame on us That due to us owner lost other interested buyers. What am I supposed to do?

In the absence of a concluded contract, the agent is obliged to return the amount advanced. You may serve a legal notice seeking return of the amount.

You can take the help of a local lawyer to file a police complaint as cheating with available proof so that they are forced to complete the transaction or refund. Legal action you can resort to based on th outcome of police complaint.
