There are also people who pretend to be wealthy and try to rent property to enter the house, and don’t pay rent until they are sued.
If you are looking to rent a property, be careful and don’t be fooled by appearances. Dozens of people request appointments with a serious real estate company to search for properties.
They come dressed elegantly to be considered wealthy and in expensive cars. There are many speeches they hire. But what they are about to say is already very structured.
Some people say that the house they have is already big because their kids have gone to university or to live alone, and they need a smaller house.
They present all requested papers and, if the contract is signed, they pay rent for two months and after the third month they stop paying.
