Customer Question

went looking at new apartment, informed leasing agent that my husband credit is poor, she then said that wee can just get your application approved in your name. Then we can just add him later. Went ahead and submitted application and got approved. Within few weeks, paid 400 deposit, signed 12 month lease and moved completely in. Was then told that we need to get them husband and his car info, so parking sticker can be issued and he can get added, but not to worry about anything, because nothing will change, the apartment is mine. Submit his info, then a week or so later, husband receives email, stating that he has to pay additional one months rent as additional deposit in order to be approved.
Is this even legal?
