If they choose to.

"Arimatthewdavies"

there are truly some slimy people in this world and YOU are one of them.

Your best bet would be to immediately and I do mean immediately call the money order company and report that the money order was stolen from your car or lost the money order company will put stop payment on the money order and you can go ahead and file the lost money order claim after you do that then you can go to the landlord and see if he'll give you back your money order he's probably not going to. But if you wait that landlord may take your money order and deposit it in his bank and then it's going to be almost impossible to get your money back calling the money order company and putting a stop payment on it because of loss or theft will cause the money order to bounce it's going to take you better than 30 days to get your money back by filing a claim that's probably your best bet! Landlords are notorious for saying this is a non-refundable deposit do what I tell you and you'll get your money back eventually from the money order company.

If 'backing out' means you are breaching a signed contract, no, and that deposit can be applied toward any loss of rent. You can be sued, and if the loss of rent is more than what the deposit will cover, you can have a money judgment against you.

If 'backing out' means you changed your mind before signing anything, but the deposit was given to 'hold' the apartment for you so that no one else could rent it, then you lose that deposit. The property was taken off the market because of you and now the complex has to find someone new. Lost time is lost money. But, if you didn't sign a contract, the deposit is all you can lose.

Its very unlikely, that money is specifically to assure that you do move in and to cover the costs of holding the property in the event you do back out. You can always check what you signed for an out and ask them about this but I strongly suspect that money is gone.

Read your lease, breaking a legal contract has penalties. You need to understand that. Your signature was a guarantee that you would rent there.

There are two scenarios here, I am not sure of the one you fit in

#1. You gave a deposit to hold the rental unit for you. You probably heard security deposit to hold the rental unit for you. In this case, you would not have signed a lease agreement.

Since this deposit was to hold the rental unit for you and the apartment was no longer advertised, you would not be legally entitled to a refund of your deposit.

#2. You signed a lease agreement, paid the deposit required and promised the landlord or property manager you would return with the first month rent.

If this was the case, again you would not be legally entitled to a refund of your deposit.

If this is the case, you might be required to pay the first month rent. You did not provide the proper notice that you no longer wanted to reside in the rental unit.

The property manager or landlord could return your deposit out of good will and if there is a back up tenant to replace you.

I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.

"FIGHT ON"

Probably not. Most likely that money is a holding fee to take the unit off the market, but read your receipt to be sure. If you do not sign a lease, you will not get that money back.

Chances of a refund are very slim. You can think your payment was a "security deposit", but it was actually a deposit to hold the unit for you. Security deposits are paid when you sign the lease.

If you signed a lease, no. You are bound by the terms of the lease and will probably end up owing him money. If you did not sign a lease and you just gave him money, then you might get it back. There are no guarantees.
