force to buy a condo

I'm in a process of buying a condo. My purchase contract contains loan clause but it contains only loan amount without exact loan rate. After contingency expired I found out that I could not get a loan at fair rate because of bad ratio of renters/owners in the complex. What could I do now ? Is there any way I could break a deal without losing the deposit ?
Can I sue my agent for not advicing me to put exact rate in the contract ?

You already have an out because your contract was written that the purchase was subject to financing. You can not get financing because the lender does not approve the owner/occupant ratio therefore no loan. The loan interest rate is a moot issue.
Your real estate also messed up as the financing contingency should always specify loan amount, interest rate and points.
