JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The On Your Side team received a fax from John who wanted a refund from Pulte Homes.

After a deal fell through to purchase a Pulte Home, John said they told him they needed a copy of the contract but he could not find it. Instead, John showed us a copy of his ten thousand dollar check. 

Monday afternoon we received a call from the builder. Tara Jinks with Pulte said they are keeping the money because John defaulted on the terms of the agreement.

Jinks said "it's not what we like to see, but those were the circumstances of his agreement." Jinks added that they welcome his future business. Jinks also reminded perspective home buyers that you should be sure that you understand the terms of any legal agreement you are signing.
