If she has changed her mind because of a mistake made in the rental agreement, I’d return her deposit and look for another tenant. Your time is better spent on things that make you serious money. Trying to collect late fees, or defend yourself against a lawsuit for wrongful withholding of a deposit, is NOT time well spent.
I hope she ends up moving in. But, if not, cut your losses and move on. It doesn’t sound like finding a new tenant would be too difficult based on the fact that you had tenants signed up several weeks ahead of expected move-in anyway.
