Landlord denies occupancy because current tenant decides to stay.

Posted by Wali on July 20, 1999 at 17:13:33:

I signed an "application form" for a 2 bed apartment, paid security deposit
and $100 application fee for August 15th, 1999 move-in date. Two days later,
the management called me and said the current tenant was no longer vacating so
the apartment was no more available for rent.

They are offering me a substitue apartment one month later or a substitute
apartment on a middle floor which does not suit to me. (I needed a top floor
apartment becuase my wife and I are sleep-sensitive).

Doesn't security deposite guarantee that I will get the apartment I signed up for.
What does "application form" mean.
What are my rights keeping in mind that I did not sign a lease yet.
