Philadelphia, PA asked in Consumer Law and Real Estate Law for New Jersey

Q: We paid 3000 to move into home asked for CO was never provided now we find home wasn't inspected. What can we do? Sue?

We asked via text so there is documentation of several requests. Now landlord doesn't want to rent to us she says because we are asking her to repair too many things. She has stated she's not putting anymore money in the house (hence the reason there is no CO because failed inspection was probably costly)We have given notice to current landlord and there are 2 children involved. What recourse do we have? We've spent over $1200 for items for this house and got rid of items we wouldn't need in new home hired people to clean out garage and do yard work all in anticipation of moving in next week... We are angry heartbroken and deceived! What can we do? This is a NJ property and rent is $1400 per month plus water and utilities!

A: You can retain a litigation attorney to file suit against the landlord. An in person consultation and document review is necessary to obtain proper legal advice. Depending on the specific town the apartment is located in there may also be additional remedies available to you.
