Tenants Rights prior to lease signing

Posted by Tim King on April 24, 2001 at 16:43:01:

I know I was the idiot that made moving arrangements prior to signing
the lease but thought i should ask any way:

Over the course of 2 weeks I was verbally assured that I would be the new tenant in a condo complex. The person I spoke with was 1 of 3 owners that rents the condo as an investment. Well, 1 week prior to move in he calls to say they are giving the condo to someone else. Do I have any case since he verbally said the condo was mine and the lease was still being rewritten to incorporate a dog and it's security deposit into the lease? He did say other person looked at place, and according to my calculations of when that person viewed the apartment and when he last told me the place was mine, he must have known that he had no intentions of giving the condo to me. Can he be reported to any deparment at least so no one else gets screwed?
Can he be held to his numerous verbal offers?
