was supposed to move in to an apartment on 12/14/20. I was also going to work for them. I paid sec dep/1st mo rent. Was emailed copy of receipt. Have emails confirming the move in date. The electric and other bills being hooked up in my name on that date and additional correspondences from landlord. A few days prior I got message stating it would not be move in ready (the place had to be completely renovated/gutted). Started job on 12/18. On 12/21 a week after I was to move in and the bills were already in my name, I was handed a check from the owners father saying "you'll know what this is for" (it was the amount of sec deposit and rent) and said i hope there's no hard feelings, but your personality doesn't fit they're letting you go... I had already given notice to previous rental, as of the 31st my 15 y.o. and I are homeless.. couch surfing. Everything in storage. Because we didn't sign a lease but did have verifiable written communication of me moving and discussed our "verbal lease" what rights do I have? Also, there was never any agreement or discussion Verbally or written that my tenancy would be based off being employed by them.
