  1. Hi All ~ Hopefully someone on the Forum has dealt with this problem and can offer some expertise. #1) Yes, an attorney appt. has been set up for Monday a.m., 13 May. Here's the scenario: I have a new neighbor who previewed the house next door with an agent. There was furniture in the house and she asked the agent if it went with the house and was told, after he checked with the owner, "yes, except for the computer desk". When she moved in with only her personal items, the house was virtually empty. There was a twin bed in one BR, a Qn. bed in the other BR, a dining table & 4-chrs. and a very, very old well-worn refrig. There were no dishes, pots, pans, toaster, coffee maker, silverware, no TV, no lamps, no living room furniture... it was a virtual warehouse. The contract says "Fully Furnished" to include a land line and Internet connection. There is no land line available, and it took one week to get CableTica to hook up the Internet. The landlord brought in some dishes & silverware, some patio furniture after her mother left for Europe, an old leather couch that the former tenants had had her take out due to mold--and which my new neighbor had removed for the same reason, and bought a TV. My neighbor bought a convection oven (there is no oven, of which she was aware, a computer desk & chair; I loaned her two living room chairs and a floor lamp so she could see the computer and read. The rental amount includes utils., the Internet connection, use of the pool and the services of a gardener. She will be here one month on Monday, and the grass still hasn't been cut and there are areas in the large yard and garden that are being overtaken by weeds. In addition she cannot take the heat here, and needs to return to the cooler temps of Grecia. She wrote a (nice) email to the owner today explaining her health needs and the misrepresentation of the property, said she'd have asked for a lower rent if she'd known it was unfurnished, and said to please use her dep. as the next month's rent (due Monday), that she would be leaving at the end of the next month's rent. The owner called the agent who related the rent needs to be paid Monday "or else"... So, my question is: does my neighbor have the right to cancel the contract due to the misrepresentation? CRF & Epcatt--hope you get a chance to see this & respond prior to Monday. A little self-assurance would do my neighbor a world of good right now. Anyone else out there with experience in this issue, please give me your thoughts. Thanks so much!
