§4361. Deposit not earnest money; rule to turn over deposit
If the terms of the sale provide for a deposit by the purchaser, this deposit shall not be considered earnest money and does not give the purchaser the right to withdraw from the sale by forfeiting the deposit. However, if the property is resold at the risk of the first purchaser, and a loss is occasioned by such resale, the party provoking the sale may proceed by rule against the first purchaser and the officer conducting the sale to have the deposit turned over to the plaintiff in rule, to the extent of such loss.
