Question: I went in to paseo park apt paid my 40.88 application fee and also my 100.00 holding fee I was approved signed the rental agreement for a apt took proposal to section 8 it was denied talk to property manager and explained it was a mistake she said okay but there's another problem the apt I gave you the tenants decided not to move and I have no other apt that will fit in your budget now if I'm not mistaken didn't she suppose to find me another apt or tell the tenants they have to move because she rented the apt to someone else what are my legal rights now I'm living in a roach infested property

Answer: At the very least, they should refund your application fee and the holding fee immediately. Without seeing the holding contract,it's hard to know exactly what your rights are. You could sue them to force them to rent you an apartment, but that would probably take longer than just looking for another place. I'd suggest you find another place and THEN sue Paseo for the difference in rent if any and for damages for having to live in the roach-infested apartment until you could find another place.
