Can a realtor took my $500 deposit and didn't rent me the property
I recently saw a commercial property in Brooklyn, NY and wanted to rent the place. Â The realtor ran my credit and said it looks fine. Â But the owner was on vacation and would have to wait until he came back to sign the lease. Â The realtor asked for a deposit of $500 to secure my spot until owner came back. Â After waiting for over 2 weeks, I was told that the owner is not going to rent to me. Â Can they do that?
