On April 12th, 2016 I met with an Associate at the apartment

On April 12th, 2016 I met with an Associate at the apartment complex, she gave me a tour of the facilities and even showed me how to access the parking garage from inside the building. I was told that tenants have access to all amenities, and parking in the garage is an amenity provided to all tenants, which was also stated on the website. This was something I payed close attention to because parking in a garage was high on my priority list in finding an apartment.So after viewing the facilities I decided to lease an apartment.On August 16, 2016 I received an email from the apartment stating that new residents are allowed to park in the garage temporarily and reserve parking will begin being enforced on August 22nd, 2016. This prompted me to email the General Manager because no one informed me of any kind of reserved parking and in my lease agreement it even states that parking is not assigned. The manager responded stating:" As for the parking garage, we unfortunately have limited spaces reserved for onsite parking. Unfortunately, if you have not already been issued a reserved parking space we ask that you take advantage of the parking garages FIU offers to its students. Or, you can take advantage of the free street parking or public parking lots for a small hourly fee.I wish signing a lease also guaranteed you a parking space, however we are not offering onsite parking as a free amenity. I will follow up with my team to ensure they are communicating the parking lot information that was miscommunicated to you at the time of your lease signing."As you can see, even in his reply, its contradictory to what was stated on their website as parking being an amenity. Further, over my lunch break, I decided to visit the 4th Street Commons location in hopes of finding a solution. I met with the Regional Supervisor and the only options he presented to me were to either park on the street or sublease my apartment.I'd like for them to accommodate my vehicle as I do not want to park on the street.

This is with regards to my questions/concerns earlier today.

This is with regards ***** ***** questions/concerns earlier today. There is something I forgot to mention...This "additional occupant" asked to be put on the Lease about 2 weeks ago. We gave her the rental application, which she completed and submitted back to us. We wrote up an Addendum to add her (all as per the Lease Agreement), but then she decided that she did NOT want to be added.Since she declined to be added as a Tenant, does that change how she would be viewed? If she declined to be added as a tenant, she can't be viewed as a tenant, correct?

I found an listing on Apartment.com and I'm interested in

I found an listing on Apartment.com and I'm interested in it. I contacted the agent to view the unit. The agent asked me to fill the lease form with my information and make booking deposit of the first month rent and deposit. The contract clearly stated all deposit will refund if we don't like the unit upon viewing. After we paying the deposit, the agent said we have to pay 1500 extra for the home insurance to the landlord. If we don't, " In the event the applicant fails to take possession after the rental application is accepted, the Deposit and/or first month's rent will be forfeited as liquidated damages.Before release of the keys and actual move-in, the Apartment Insurance – Protecting Your Apartment...2015 HUD Resolution, if applicable, must also be paid." He also said the landlord just inform him and now we have to pay it before viewing. This is what he said, "The landlord just inform me that you should pay just the insurance that is in importance when viewing all move in you can now pay the balance $1000, the landlord has accept you...."

Occupants including a brother are not on the rental

Occupants including a brother are not on the rental agreement. I will name them and all others in possession, on a 3 day notice to pay or quit. A sister that was on the rental agreement moved out a month ago. She had an understanding with her brother that he would move out by the 7th of Dec. On Dec.7th he was sentenced to 6 months in jail, with no bail. His girl friend with another person are still there.Do I put the sister's name who has moved out on the 3 day notice pay or quit? The original rental agreement included their parents who recently died who I have not put on the 3 day notice to pay or quit. I do not want to go after damages.

On Nov 13, 2015 I was approved apartment in LA county after

On Nov 13, 2015 I was approved for an apartment in LA county after completing a rental application with credit check. The original agreement was to rent the apartment with a one year lease (as indicated in that application). On Nov 16, I placed a holding deposit and the property management and I both signed their "Apartment Rented Form" for a term of one year and a specified monthly rental amount. The move in date is set for Dec 26 with the signing of a one year lease at that time. I was provided a welcome packet.Three days ago, the property manager for the property management company contacted me and stated that they now want to change the terms of agreement to a monthly rental and raise the rent to a higher amount after a couple months and at which time I would be then be able to sign a year lease. This was not the original agreement. Is the "Application Rented Form" a legally binding document given that now they are trying to change the terms? I want to move into the apartment under what we agreed upon when I gave them the holding deposit, what is my recourse?
