I signed a lease for an apartment in Brooklyn and just learned that it is not the apartment I was originally shown. When I signed the lease I recognized that the apartment number was incorrect and asked the broker to make the correction which she says she did. Yesterday she called me to tell me that in fact the apartment I was shown was already rented and the lease was correct to begin with. I visited the apartment on the lease today and it is completely unsuitable in comparison, I would have never agreed to live there had I known. The lease I signed stated that it was a two year contract. Now I'm in a bind. I need a place to live and I'm willing to live in the new apartment until I can find another one. What are my legal rights in asking the management company of the building to draft a new lease on a month to month basis and asking for the broker's fee back? Do I need legal reprentation? Should I approach the management company before seeking legal coucil? Any information or contacts would be enormously appreciated.
