Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Just to clarify.. I am not obligated to get my deposit back until the house has a new occupant or signed lease.. So I will be in the waiting game until either has happened??
Also.... And the fact that I was told one date initially doesn't make any difference in my ability to get out of this situation?? As I was under the impression to be taking possession in July. But was later told, I wouldn't be able to move into the house until August. Isn't that a misrepresentation of the possession/occupancy of the home??
Again, I have not signed any Rental Agreement or Lease. I have only filled out a Rental Application.
Thank you again for your time and response!!!!
