The contract can be considered null and void. However if they had that the offer was contingent upon them getting a mortgage and provide proof they were denied, the seller cannot keep the d3posit.

You need to refer to the contract as to what the conditions are for keeping or releasing a deposit. Typically there would be dates that must be met with regards to obtaining suitable financing or having any rejection of financing provided to the seller as evidence. I'd suggest speaking to a local real estate attorney as this is a legal matter.
