Can't rent because my condo sale has not yet closed.

I was just turned down for a nice apartment because sale is pending on my condo - I have a contract and we are due to close in tthree weeks - and the apartment management views my existing mortgage as a liability and my income isn't sufficient, according to their formula. Has anyone ever heard of this? I've rented in this area before, while owning my condo, and I've never had a problem.

NO, it seems to me that their "logic" defies real life logic as you must rent or purchase another condo apartment or fee simple home in order to vacate the apartment before the settlement day so the purchaser can move in. 
This might be a Fair Housing violation - contact a lawyer for an advice and explain the details of your situation.
