I am in the state of Texas and I inquired my apartment complex about transferring to a downstairs apartment.
The night before the transfer I get this new lease that is $30 more a month, plus a prorate that will have me paying close to $200 more for this month alone, plus a $250 deposit which I actually paid $500 deposit when I first moved in.
None of this was discussed beforehand, I asked if I could transfer, they said sure, I said that's it, nothing else? They said nope, you are all set.
So clearly this is a non-starter, the move is supposed to happen tomorrow, is there anything legal they can use against me if I just say, no thanks I will stay where I am?
By the way I have not signed anything and my current lease does not expire until November of this year.
