I am sorry to hear this.

Are you saying you paid first and last month's rent and the unit is now not ready?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
We agreed to rent a seniors apt. After they promised to change the carpet in the bedroom and some minor cleaning. AFTER 5 weeks the carpet has not been changed or cleaned and now there is a plumbing issue, we have no water in the toilet in the bathroom. We were planning to move in originally on November 2, than delayed it until Nov. 12, and still there has been nothing done except they have cashed the 2 rent cheques.
