THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

Remember that renting acommodation is a legal process. We recommend doing online background checks on accommodation providers and putting all agreements in written form.

Go see the place before signing a contract. Avoid giving personal data and sending out money before you have made sure everything is correct. Make sure you understand everything before signing the contract. You can request a contract in English.

Make sure if the utilities (electricity, heating, etc.) are included in the rental price or not. In most cases, they are paid apart. You can ask to see the utility bills for summer and winter season before agreeing to rent. Utility costs may vary considerably, so make sure you have an approximate idea of how much they are going to be. Costs are usually considerably higher in the wintertime due to heating.

When signing the contract, check the condition of the apartment (systems, equipment, etc.) and document any defects.

Ask for a receipt of payments or pay by bank transfers.

When renting with the help of a rental agency, be aware that for the first month the total amount could be triple the actual rate as the first payment includes besides the month’s rent in advance also the security deposit and the broker’s fee. Generally, deposits are paid back after last monthly payment if there has been no damage caused to the property.
