Hello all expert responders Drew, Ca19lawyer2
As I indicated I gave the lady and she did give me in writing exactly following with adress of apartment I was to move in with her and another person in 3 BR apartment.
$1850 - First month rent advance
$100 - Estimated utility for first month
$2000 - Towards security deposit
$125 - Application fee to be given to rental management company to approve me as third tenant of this 3 BR apartment.
Before I got notified by formal approval of my application I lost my job and I informed her and requested refund of my money.
There is not formal signed lease except that she gave me itemized receipt of my payment with her signature.
Is this constitute a contract enforcable by New York city courts? Please advise
