I looked at an apt. Liked it and signed a lease agreement. I wanted to move in a week early and paid the deposit and extra week rent. When I went to the apt, the air conditioner wasn’t working and it looked nothing like the apt they showed in initial viewing. It actually looked like a 12 year old painted the apt. I refused to move in with the condition of the apt. They asked for and extra week to fix and repair but now I just have bad vibes and do not want to live there. Did they break the lease by not having it ready ? And can I get out of this contract?
I think you may be stuck with the least, but if it is really important to you, check with a landlord/tenant lawyer in SA on Monday for a reading on the lease and the facts.
