An Air Force servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a real estate matter involving a dispute between her and the previous owner of her home. The airman purchased a home last year, and thereafter applied for a property tax refund. The seller of the home learned of this refund and is demanding a portion of the refund, has refused to fulfil his requirement to return earnest money paid by the airman before the sale, and is threatening the airman. She seeks pro bono assistance to pursue the proper remedy.
