My partner passed away I was not on the lease as s partner

Customer Question

My partner passed away I was not on the lease as his partner but as his caregiver the manager had me jump through hoops for two days I gave her a money order for a background check I gave her my ID and social security card I had to go to Social Security to give her proof of income she said she had a one bedroom apartment for me and that I had to move in by the end of the week when I went in to fill out the paperwork that she said she was given the apartment to someone else. That was a week ago and no one has moved into the apartment I've been calling corporate and no one has returned my phone call. I want to know what my rights are they promised me an apartment and then they took it back. Rocky and I were partners for 18 years two years into our relationship he got sick and I had to become his primary caregiver. I asked several times to be put on the rental agreement and Aubrey the manager Was supposed to do the paperwork and never get it.
