Me and my wife are retired and we moved to Spain in 2015 and we will NOT return to Canada anytime soon. The apartment was bought for my son during his college in Canada. When he finished his studies he decided to study for a Phd in Australia. I'm renting an apartment for the first time therefore a professional company will make the necessary arrangements for both of us. I think it's much easier and convenient for both of us.


In Canada it's your legal right to check the property and verify the documents before I will receive any funds. Therefore I want to use a global real estate company specialized in property management called Prologis ( https://www.prologis.com/). They are an online marketplace connecting landlords with tenants and also they provide the most secure payment platform worldwide. Prologis just needs my approval and your information so they can proceed with the transaction.
It's the first time for me to do a transaction like this so I want to follow the legal procedure.
Using Prologis involves three parties: me as owner, you as a potential tenant and Prologis as a responsible third party authorized to handle this transaction. Prologis will handle everything. Prologis works the same way as the escrow account on which you place the deposit when you rent an apartment, except that instead of a bank, we use Prologis.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE AMOUNT YOU WILL SEND TO PROLOGIS IS A GUARANTEE DEPOSIT THAT YOU HAVE THE FUNDS AVAILABLE AND IT CAN NOT BE RELEASED WITHOUT YOUR APPROVAL. I CAN RECEIVE THE FUNDS JUST AFTER PROLOGIS WILL RECEIVE A COPY OF THE LEASE AGREEMENT WITH YOUR SIGNATURE.

LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED IN THE PROCESS, so I can provide all the detailed steps of the transaction (I am sure that many of the questions you have now, will be answered after I will send you the steps). If you choose to continue, I will do my best to be as transparent as possible during the whole transaction.


We are now located in Spain so if you have any other questions you can reach me any time at: +34674956880 ( if you are calling from Canada you need to dial 011- 34674956880) or you can email me your number and I will give you a call.

Thank you and have a great day!
