The leasing agent at the apartment building showed me a model apartment (the apartment I was applying for was not yet available to show). She mentioned that the apartment I was applying for was the same and the ONLY difference was that it would be a bit smaller. After being approved and the deposit paid she called to let me know the apartment was "move in ready" I went in, signed the lease and then the keys were handed over.
1) Its very clear that the manager who signed off on the apartment did not physically walk the apartment to make sure the work was done. 2) The quality of the apartment was absolutely nothing like what I was lead to believe. 3) There was no apartment "ready" for me on the date agreed on the lease
Its been 2 days since lease was signed, is there anything I can do?Also after speaking with the manager I realized that they aren't going to do much about it, which only leads me to believe that if I actually move in nothing will get fixed and I will be stuck there for a whole year. I am trying to make it work but the place was soooo unacceptable and the service was horrible I cant imagine being stuck for so long. I really am hoping that there is some way I can get out of this as I am here from another state and this is my very first apartment which explains why I did not take certain precautions... At this point I wouldn't be too upset about the deposit as long as there is some way to terminate the lease..
