The apartment complex took our money for rent and admin fee,

Customer Question
The apartment complex took...

The apartment complex took our money for rent and admin fee, had us to move in an apartment that was not ready, but they said it was. We moved boxes in and the next day we were ready to move in the furniture, the ceiling fell in in the bathroom, therefore we had to keep our furniture in the moving van until they get us another unit to move in. It's been a week and they still do not have it ready yet. We are sleeping on the floor in one of the bedrooms, and I had to send my daughter to stay with her grandmother because she has asthma. She starts school on Monday, but we don't have anywhere to stay. What can we do about these landlords responsibility?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

GA

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No, We have been given the run around from the property manager

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not as I know of. They kept us from walking through the apartment before they say it was ready.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
