Kathy Burgreen answered:
You need to do it on Zillow. Claim your home and Zillow allows owners to edit home facts. Once it's correct on Zillow, it will sync to Trulia. Zillow and Trulia are the same company. Bear in mind that real estate websites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. pay 3rd party vendors to copy information that is public from county tax assessor's offices throughout the U.S. Therefore, if your county tax assessor has your information listed incorrectly, you need to correct it first with your county tax assessor before correcting it on Zillow.com ... more

Save yourself a headache and visit the county tax assessor's office in person and look up the status of the property. The appraiser may use the tax status on file. This is separate from zoning. You need to know how the property is taxed as - not zoned. ... more

Hallk5508 answered:
I'm assuming the "fees" were for background checks of various types, to which the landlord actually paid third parties, out of pocket. IMO, those fees are never refundable. I would not call it an Application "Deposit," rather just an "Application." If the landlord finds anything unsatisfactory about you during this process, the apartment will not be rented to you. Period.

You verified that you wanted the apartment and paid a Security Deposit so that the landlord would not rent it to someone else, n'est-ce pas? Did you have a written agreement outlining what the Deposit was for? Did it mention forfeiture if you changed your mind (as you admit you did)? Yes, a Security Deposit is quite normal. Sometimes it can easily amount to twice the monthly rent, typically to cover the last month's rent and a damage deposit -- especially in a market where apartments are scarce...and expensive.

Ask yourself how much the landlord may have lost, having an unrented apartment for even one month. Actually, it doesn't matter. He has your money; you're holding nothing but perhaps a cancelled check... and hot air. In real estate negotiations, NEVER ASSUME ANYTHING. Get everything in writing.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Your idea will not work because all upstate NY colleges have a housing office for students and employees have a list of homes that students can contact to rent. The service is free to students so why would students go to your website and pay for it. Also students can easily use Zillow, Trulia and other websites for free and contact the landlord directly.

Typically if owners or landlords have a rental that is located near a university or college, they will go directly to the school and have their contact information listed with the Housing Office.

There is no state or local law preventing you from creating a website for listing rentals, however, if your intention is to earn a profit, how will you make money. The Housing Office at colleges and universities do this for free. They do not charge landlords or students. My guess, the "fee" is included in the tuition that students pay.
