The question is:

What does the lease state?
Some leases are very specific with regard to who and how many people can live in the apartment. Read the lease and see if it covers that subject in detail.

What does the lease state with regard to who and how many people can live in the apartment? The application is not a contract - the lease is.

A contract which may not be enforceable as the rental is not legal.

The lease does not state how many people will be living there but it only says how much a month , the term, that i did pay the brokers fee,

Also as i said the broker said she made a mistake by not being clear with the landlord

Unless your wife signed the lease, she can not live there without the landlords permission.

How can i tell the broker there will be 4 people moving in she said great fill out this application ( only space for 2 people's info ,ss number, past rental history so forth) and just a simple section of other living there name and age and relationship to the person said above

And she said only two people need to sign the lease, lease only says that we are the ones responsible to pay for the rent and damages and who received the credit check

So how is this my fault that the landlord and broker had a misunderstanding? Im the one who paid this broker one months rent to make a mistake? And the fact she sold me an illegal apartment?

Two brothers purchasing a house together is more normal then a married couple leasing an apt with two other adults. You’re over thinking it now.

You’ve got a lot of ‘right’ on your side now. I think you’re going to get out of this bad situation on fair terms. Don’t start complicating things by talking about the LLs brother. Most of the rentals here are illegal, it doesn’t mean a whole lot in court.

I find it funny that even the real estate person here isn't telling the op that the broker cannot collect fees on illegal units and you can report him and entitled to your fee back

Agree, also i talked with the manager she told me the landlord is willing to give me my money back and some time to move ( i asked how much money and including the broker fee) she said i need to speak with them first thats where i am at now

The manager of my broker was siding with the landlord aswell ,telling me its just because the landlord is worried about the cost if utilities and that in my next apartment i should ask for a 4 br..lol

I just hope they do the Right thing for me that is all
