Customer Question

My name is***** signed a renew lease for my apartment at $1324 per month. I used to pay $1624 per month. The rental office called me later that the rent amount was quoted incorrectly. I called the office this morning. She said she already shredded the lease I have signed. She said it is not binding if her manager did not sign it. Is this true, i.e., the renting office can shed a signed lease?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I was waiting for a typed lease after I signed the lease, but the office lady said she shredded the lease that I have signed, meaning the lease I have signed is not binding.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
