Think about the following before renting an accommodation:

  • Never pay a deposit to a foreign bank.
  • Never pay a deposit to a person, you haven't met.
  • Never pay a deposit before you have a contract signed by both parts.
  • Never pay a deposit before you have checked if the landlord is allowed to rent out the accommodation in question.
  • Never pay a deposit before you have seen the accommodation.
