I forwarded all communications to managment within minutes of being notified of the new balance. They said the leasing agent was no longer with the company and that our rent would be X amount moving forward ($75 more, before parking).
We always knew parking was an additional $75 - The problem is that we were told the parking was included in the price on the rental agreement.
Breakdown we were told prior to signing the rental agreement (and agreed to):
$2012 is the amount on the rental agreement. Then we signed another document for concessions which deducted $169 a month from that total, leaving us with a total of $1843 per month, after $75 for parking. Which is what the agent sent us as a screenshot from their computer system prior to us moving in.
We were billed and paid according to this breakdown for 3 months.
There is a claus on the contract, but the date we signed the contract, electronically, was 10/28/16. We signed the concession 11/1/16 and didn't sign receipt for keys 3 weeks later, which did have a $75 charge but, as we understood, that was inline with what we thought we had agreed to.
I did read the rental agreement in its entirety before signing. Everything made sense and seemed accurate, according to the breakdown and screenshot from the property's computer system that the leasing agent sent us.
I wouldn't have signed the contract if it wasn't explicitly given that breakdown prior to signing. And even then, based on what I was told and shown by the agent, each document made sense to sign.
