We were supposed to get a door installed in the living room to convert it into a bedroom, as the real estate agent told us. We moved in, no door - told to ask the property management company. Finally get through to them, they tell us they don't consider our apartment eligible for this. It looks like we have to pay for a door out of pocket and install ourselves - we feel we were blatantly lied to by the broker, but don't know if there's any action we can take against him? Any advice would be great - currently living in a room with no door and not enjoying it.&nbsp;<br \><br \>5 replies Thu, 25 Sep 2014 17:52:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Lied-to-about-apartment-what-to-do/560655/ 2014-09-25T17:52:00Z Curious about buyer your first home?
