My spouse and I found a nice apartment in Jette.
Go to give the ppwk today, and the lady tells us they are going to keep showing the place (we didn't give a deposit yet) b/c the landlord wants a profile of all interested lessees and he will pick the one he likes the most.
I've been advised one cannot be turned down due to race or financial reasons. You could bring the proprietor/agency to court, although most don't b/c it is too costly.
So my question is:
Is what Jet'Immo (the agency working with the landlord) doing legal?
If we get refused for this place, will they have to give us a reason?
My spouse works for IBM via Randstad, and we have a third party (gainfully employed also) to co-sign for us, as I am a stay-at-home mom.
I've never encountered anything like this in the States, so I figured I'd ask here.
And the lady looked none to happy when we asked for her name:)
