Worried about the status of a lease purchase option.?

I entered into a lease purchase option in June. The property is still under construction & available Nov. 1. The seller is having trouble with the terms of his mortgage & wants me to get a mortgage now. I can’t due to credit issues. At first he offered a refund of my sizeable deposit, but now he says that the terms of his mortgage might not change, but Nov. is fast approaching and he won’t know for 2 weeks if he can close on the property. He also stated that my monthly payments might have to be higher than on the contract. I cannot pay more. I need my deposit to look for another place. The original agreement is in writing & states the lease/purchase commences on November 1. Do I have any legal recourse to get a refund of my deposit (the contract states it is non-refundable), since the seller does not currently own the property, there are no other witnesses on the contract and I don’t think his lender knows of his intention to lease option the property?

Is a lease option to purchase worth making the payments?

… Or could just saving just about that much amount for a down payment just about the same?

Real Estate Question: Lease to own option and adding a person to the title of the home?

Person A owns the home and offered person B a "Lease to Own" option. The lease to own option states:

1) Person A wants person B to pay %50 of the property taxes during the lease period. Person A will add person B to the title of the home so that person B can claim the mortage payments & property taxes as a credit at the end of the tax year. However, person B is not on the loan.

2) When person B excersices the purchase option at the end of the lease term, the purchase price will be the balance on the mortages + any outstanding taxes owed on the property such that person A can leave the transaction without owing anything.

If person A defaults on the mortage/loan and forecloses, what does that mean for person B? Will person B also be liable for the loan?
