Collect all the proof of your current residency. This guy sounds like major fraud contact the State Attorney Generals pronto. Did you sign a lease? if so the apartment should have been vacant and it was he responsibility to do it...most leases say that if you don't move in with 30 days the leases is terminated but your deposit is lost....again this sounds bad..contact the attorney general and report this guy.

: During the end of Jan 99 I gave H.Jalisi (landlord) monies for first month's rent (700) and application fee (30) for apt 7I. He cashed the checks. The apartment was resided in by a tenant with no intention on moving and by the end of March I asked for my money back. He refused, saying that it was a security deposit and that now I owe him for 1 year's rent on the apartment because it is now vacant (4/4). What are my rights?
