My daughter and 2 friends signed rental agreements for a 3

My daughter and 2 friends signed rental agreements for a 3 person furnished student apartment in Raleigh, NC. about a week ago. They management company has come back to them saying that they don't have any furnished apartments left, after being told that they were available when all 3 signed their agreements. The landlord also indicated that they could not guarantee that all 3 could live together now. It seems as if they were told whatever the girls wanted to hear and now since they have paid their deposit money, they are being told that they have a binding agreement that they cannot get out of. They would like to get their money back and go find another place. What are their options?
