If they don't return your rental application money pronto...contact the attorney general's office in you state.

You didn't mention it so I'll ask are you a minority?, do you have children?, unmarried but living with someone? because this is typical behavior from a landlord that finds no fault in you credit but doesn't find you "desirable". If so I suggest you contact your state attorney general about this as well.

: I don't know where to turn with this, perhaps someone can help. After seeing an apartment that my wife and I liked, we immediately applied, handing over the $100.00 credit check fee.

: Now, a few days later we are told that the quoted amount and printed amount that was on the sales person's sheet were far below market value, and would instead be raised $600.00 a month more.

: My question is, how can they do this? What prevents them from seeing what you paid before and adjusting the rent saying they were below market with what they were looking for? Any help would greatly be appreciated!
