Legal Answers
Q. I signed a holding agreement for an apartment I got approved. The landlord is breaking this agreement, is this illegal?
A: By "holding agreement," you are referring to something different than an actual lease, I assume. Even then, if you provided consideration, which could simply be a promise to pay rent and sign a lease, the holding agreement should be enforceable. And because you disclosed your dog, the landlord had actual notice and knowledge of your pet and, based on what you said, shouldn't be able to object now, having failed to do so when he or she learned of your animal. In full disclosure, I am a personal injury lawyer, but this is basic contract enforcement, which I am knowledgeable about. Back to my answer: since the subject of the contract is an apartment, you could feasibly have the holding agreement enforced by a court through "specific performance," which essentially obligates the breaching party (in this case, the landlord) to comply with the terms of the holding agreement by allowing you to move into the apartment. This would, however, require you to work with a real estate lawyer who can assist you with filing the lawsuit. I hope this helps and best of luck. ... Read More
