We have broken lease on our rental and have paid the RE to find a new tenant. It has been over 5 weeks with 2 applicants denied.
The last applicant was actually approved by the RE and landlord. We were told they would be signing a new lease today.
This morning I got a call saying the LL has changed his mind because whilst they were happy to begin with the LL's wife (local gossip) doesn't approve of the applicants "after hours lifestyle" WTF!?!
Do we have any legal leg to stand on? I completely understand that a LL can change their mind, but are they actually allowed to approve an applicant who they were very happy with, all referrals checked out then say no due to "gossip" the wife has heard?
Do we have any chance of fighting this? Because we actually don't think anyone is going to take over our lease!
We can not afford to pay anymore rent on this house, we don't know what to do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
