Recently my current apartment got bed bugs, we received them due to the land lord refusing to do anything including even check our place when the apartment across the hall brought bed bugs into the apartment.
We were told that they wouldn't do anything until we got them, so now we have them and they are being taken care of but we wish to move.
We had to excersize our rights to get the land lord of the building to actually have it investigated and sprayed and had to call the city as well as health boards to have it done.
Now because of all of this we wish to move, recently we applied for an apartment which was perfect for my girlfriend and myself. Went in and seen it, everything was copacetic, age requirements, no pets no smoking which we have none of.
My credit rating is excellent and I have been told that when I applied at previous apartment, I have never been late for a payment and I make more then enough to cover the rent on my own not including the extra income that my girlfriend brings in.
The morning after we applied, without evening calling my reference of which was my landlord for 3 years they called and said we were denied due to someone else getting the apartment.
Three weeks later, we find out that the apartment is still up for rent and no one else has applied for it. Should we re-apply? Is there no law that states we have to be told a valid reason of why we were denied? This apartment is not a privately owned apartment, it is a large apartment owned by a company that own several apartment buildings.
We believe the problems may be due to our current situation with our landlord, and possibly being on one of those black lists because we had to use our rights to fight just to get our current apartment taken care of.
Frustrated and confused,
