Can we get our apartment deposit back? Posted on March 14, 2011

My roommate and I recently gave a deposit for an apartment. We never signed a lease, rental application, or any papers when we gave the deposit. We now cannot take the apartment, but are being told that we can't get our deposit back because it is non-refundable. We were not told that out deposit would not be refundable before or after we made the deposit. We were given a receipt after we gave the deposit that stated it was non-refundable. Is it possible for us to get out deposit back?
