Q&A: If apartment does not uphold amenities advertised, does it constitute breach of contract?

Post your WANT. It’s like Craigslist, but reversed. And really different. At Ubokia, you’re the rockstar. Post exactly what you want and sellers respond to you. Only talk to sellers you choose.

Question by Tyler: If apartment does not uphold amenities advertised, does it constitute breach of contract?
I live in Amarillo, TX. We chose to move to arden ridge apts partially because of an amenity listed online. Their website advertises free high speed Internet. We have been here nearly 4 months and there is no high speed Internet and I have been given the runaround as to why it’s not working and when it will. My question is does this constitute a breach of contract on the apartment’s end?

Legally it’s a breach of contract if the high speed internet is listed as a part of your lease. Read you lease.

if it’s in the lease it does. If it’s not in the lease. it does not, as the lease is the contract. If it is listed on the lease, you MAY have an opportunity to withhold rent. Consult a lawyer.

No, for breach of contract you need to look at what is listed on your lease, nothing online means anything at all. That is no contract.
