I am having trouble with my hall for my May wedding. We initially signed the contract in 2019 for October 2020 and postponed it to May. The hall is refusing to give the refund and says will provide a credit for future use. There is no force majeure clause in the contract. It also says deposits are non-refundable for any reason. It simply says the hall has the right to cancel in the event of emergency but nothing else regarding deposits in the case of emergency.
Doesn't the contract become frustrated in this case therefore they have to return the deposit? How are you dealing with the venues that don't return the deposit?
