I live in Dumont, NJ. I'm about to sign a lease with a landlord and I also have Section 8. I haven't moved in yet; To finalize the rent payment to the landlord, there must be a HAP contract signed by the 3 parties in which I pay a portion and Section 8 pays a portion of the rent after me giving the executed lease (landlord+tenant only).If Section 8 doesnt go through with the contract, I will guess the landlord wont want me. Will I still have to pay the 1 month Broker fee since nothing was finalized/signed? Broker section in Lease states for me to pay the fee "upon signing the lease." I want to wait to pay it until everything is finalized. I asked for broker to put "upon signing HAP contract" instead, but she seems dismissive to my written request.
Your guidance would be appreciated.
