New York Habitat — lodging bait & switch
On July 31st I entered into an agreement with NY Habitat for rental of an apartment at 340 W. 48th St. #3, NYC 10036 from October 11th through October 20th.
I was notified TODAY (October 7th) that the apartment is "no longer available", that they would substitute an apartment on 116th St. in East Harlem, that they were "very booked" and this was the only other apartment available. I find this extremely hard to believe.
Talk about waiting 'til the last moment to bait and switch. I thought these people were reputable.
I would appreciate any thoughts on some recourse I could take - City, Housing Authority, etc.?
Any suggestions on recourse?
