Hi,

My name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
No, they can't. The agreement to rent an apartment is binding - whether it's oral or in writing. If the landlord cancels, he'll have to return the tenant's deposit. The landlord could also be liable for paying the difference between the agreed rent and what it costs the tenant to rent a similar apartment somewhere else.
