Question: I signed a contract to move into an apartment 6 weeks ago paid all fees and first months rent, I am supposed to move in on June 22, 2019. I received a phone call today telling me the apartment will no be available because the current renter has decided not to move. I have less than two weeks to find alternative housing is this legal?

Answer: You would be wise to discuss your situation in detail with a legal advocate. The answer to the question of whether or not the landlord has acted lawfully will likely depend on (among other things) the precise nature of your agreement with the landlord as well as the reasonableness of your reliance upon that agreement.
