Can I get the security deposit back before signing the contract?
I decided to rent a 5-years-old apartment in Delhi 1.5 months ago, and payed the "Security Deposit" of 3 months of rent. Since then, they did NOTHING, no cleaning, no painting works etc..I yelled at the realtor and finally he started the work 5 days before the commencement date of the contract. He managed to finsh 85% of the interior, but the common area, in front of my front door, are still very messy and filthy. Also for the legal docs, we repeatedly requested to send us the REVISED contract draft, but the realtor doesn't send us. The meeting with the owner is scheduled tomorrow morning. But the realtor says he will bring the contract directrly to the meeting, which means we cannot even review it. The commencement date is the day after tomorrow. Can I reject signing the contract and get the deposit back?
