Normally you would read your lease to verify the terms and conditions around fees and deposits.

Most pet deposits are non-refundable.

As for the security deposit .... you may be correct and due a return of your deposit .... less any damages where he can document he paid for something.

Why would you be entitled to a relocation check?? (How have you been wronged?). You are a renter .... rentals are not permanent. If you had a formal written lease in place .... then you would have a case stating you planned to be in the unit until a specific date. The new owner could then choose to honor the lease or settle with you to vacate early.

Since you lived on a verbal agreement, you have very limited recourse, as the standard assumption would be that you are a month to month tenant ..... which means with 30 days notice the new owners can require your departure.

It looks like this a case of your word against mine as neither has pictures. It will probably be best settled at a small claim court. Make sure that you documents everything including the history of the issues.

Do you have a copy of the executed contract? I would suggest reading it again.

Good luck!

It sound slike a SCAM, never rent a home without seeing it, never wire money, and if it sounds too good to be true, it probabily is.

Trulia does know. Rental scams are common here and on any site that allows the general public to post. Please be very cautious with deals that seem too good to be true. NEVER send money expecting keys back by mail. You can search the address in any search engine to see how the homes are advertised elsewhere. If one listing is much cheaper than other places, it's likely a scam.

Read the scam warning Trulia posts. I've attached a link to it below.

When you find a questionable listing please go to the More button on the listing and then hit the FLAG button on the listing page to warn Trulia and others or email it to

Did you find something that worked? Often getting creative on an offer to an individual owner might help in the case of a prior broken lease. Possibly offer to pay the 1st 3 months upfront or double deposit. Hope that helps! -- AC ... more

Perhaps always depends on the landlord. They may ask for additional deposit if they can't check your credit or background. You would need your passport, visa, copy of offer letter in many cases. ... more

Neigborhoods are all about personal preferences, budgets, wants, needs, lifestyle; therefore consider further researching areas of interest on your own, and take the time to visit more than once, then determine where your comfort level can best be reached; don't simply just entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you. If you are concerned about schools, perhaps the links below may be of some help...

Robbie English answered:
If you do in fact find a rent to own property that you want to purchase, please make sure that you have a title search performed on the property by a title company and have a real estate attorney review your contract for purchase, deed work and mortgage documentation. Having a professional review this documentation for you can save you should there ever be an issue in the future with you and the current seller. ... more
