I can totally understand why deposits are non-refundable, though. If companies get an order which is then canceled.. probably creates a problem.I doubt the Companies/Builders would allow this, just imagine the paperwork headaches. The biggest thing I've learned from this is that I will never again purchase anything that requires a non-refundable deposit. Period.
I've said this a couple times already, in this thread... but i think all your angst and concern will disappear, once that Quantico is in your hands!
