Is there any way we can get our Rental Deposit Back?
my husband and I signed a lease to rent a home and gave them our deposit. then actually went through with trying to buy the home, and in the process of doing that, the owners tell us we need flood insurance. they tell us that they only pay $ 250 a year, when we were actually quoted nearly $ 2,000 a year. So we get out of buying the house, and get out of leasing the house because they tell us they will send us our security deposit to us. 2 weeks later we never get it. We finally get ahold of them (after they had changed their numbers) and they tell us they are not going to send us our money, because they don’t have to, and that they have already rented out the house. that was October 30th, and our lease wasn’t even supposed to start until November 1. The only reason we didn’t move into the house was because they told us they were going to let us have our deposit back. And now, we can’t move into the house even if we wanted to because they have already rented it out to someone before our lease was even supposed to start! Is there any way we can get our money back? Thank you very much for your time!
