My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Tenn.
Hello, Ok my question is can they cash this check.
On wed we saw a house we like and was going to rent this house, The lady said She was going to keep showing the house till we gave her the deposit. So we gave her the deposit, A check , with the understanding that she cant deposit it before we sign the lease. She said she would have the lease on Friday. Friday comes and she said she had been busy and that it would be Tue or Wed. Well friday we decided to check on a different house, liked it and sign a lease for that house, call the first lady back and told here we had changed our mind, she then Cashed the check that said on it , For deposit.
Does she have the right to keep the money. Would a court oder her too give it back.
