They rented what I later found out was an illegal dwelling. Of course, this was after I had applied for rent. It was a windowless basement room, which was in dirty conditions and was a fire trap with a tampered smoke detector. There was a clause about bad behavior they did not honor when we filed complaints about a horrible roommate. I left but they refused to give me my deposit back and asked for another month to get me off the hook. I gave them nothing. The could not sue me as the room was illegal and they would have lost. I did not sue them for the deposit as I was too stressed out and just wanted out of there but I know i would have won. They take advantage of people's lack of knowledge of their rights. Shameful.
Just a poor situation for renters.
