3 months ago we signed an "agreement to execute rental agreement" in Oregon. Now, 5 days before our move in date, the rental company has told us that the house we were renting is infested and trashed. They could have a month to fix this, but instead are canceling the contract and sending us our money back. We just moved from Boston, MA to Oregon and we are looking at major damages, especially that I will be unable to attend grad school next year because I will not be considered an in-state resident if I am not living in Oregon for a full year. I looked back at the contract and was shocked that it states "return of the deposit shall be the applicant's sole remedy for failure to convey possession of the unit." Is it legal to write a contract where I lose my deposit for breaching, but the company has no punishment for breaching? Can I sue for damages? Our rental was canceled due to their negligence- we asked for photos and they would not send them but said the rental was in good condition
