real rent? security deposit?

Posted by Gene Portnoy on August 04, 1999 at 11:37:29:

I recently found a apartment that was listed at $1100.
When I was ready to sign the lease the rent written down was 1452.64.
And my security deposit is $1100.
I also had to put down the first month's rent which is $1100.

When I inquired why the rent on the lease is different form what I'm paying
I was told that the landlord is doing it for tax perposes and that one I
pay the $1100 for the first month's rent legally the landlord can just decided
to change it.

The question is if in the lease it say that I have to pay 1452.64 but my actually
rent is $1100 am I automatically in default of my lease if I'm not pay the amount
written on it?

What are my right's here. Am I being royally screwed? Is there anything else I
need to consider?

please help.
