I live in West suburbs of Chicago and canceled my contract on one of properties 10 days ago. But I didn't get any communication from the Seller's attorney since we sent the cancellation notice on April 28th.
The house was listed in the market again on April 28th. That means the seller did that immediately when he had the letter from my attorney. And then the house in contingent from May 6. In other words, the seller accepted an offer from a buyer and the house is under contract right now.

My cancellation reason are (1) there is no evidence that permits were issued for the deck construction, (2) misstatements regarding the condition and age of the roof, and (3) my inability to secure a loan at an interest rate of 4.25 percent or lower under MORTGAGE CONTINGENCY which is #8 of the contract.

After 10 days, my attorney suggested me to sign a form that I'm directing the holder of the earnest money to return the earnest money to me. I signed the cancellation form and sent the form to my realtor on May 7.
And then I still have not received any communication from the seller and broker. How can I get my earnest money back?
