My name is Lukas and I am the owner of the apartment,I have received an E-mail from you in which you are interested in renting out my apartment.
At the moment I'm with my family and I won't stay there, so I rented it longer. We have a solution to this inconvenience so you can move in as soon as possible.
The apartment is quiet, has all the facilities and utilities: TV, parking, laundry, air conditioning, high speed internet, pets are allowed.
The monthly rent is €700 + 1300 security deposit ( Kaution ), it is also important that the additional costs (water, electricity, internet, digital TV) are included in the price.
The apartment is in very good condition you will see from the pictures.
The apartment is furnished, renovated and fully equipped (washing machine, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, digital TV, WiFi).
You can use my furniture or you can use your own if you prefer. When
If you choose yours you will have access to a very large and well ventilated warehouse to put my furniture in.
If you're already interested, we're with you. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards!

Hello again,

See the attached files please.
I have inform you before, the price you shall pay for the first month of rent will be 700 Euro ( money for the first month in which you move in apartment ) and I want also security deposit ( Kaution ) 1300 Euro, in total in the first month you have to pay 2.000 Euro without additional charges to pay. The money for the next months (700 euro) I want to receive monthly in my bank account, so I hope it will be no problem for you to wire money.

I'm willing to send you the keys so you can visit and check the apartment. The delivery for the keys and the rental contract (signed by me), will be made by AirBnb ( ), they will also help us to make a third party transaction so you can therefore feel safe about this deal.

To start the transaction with the AirBnb you need to send me all this details:

Full name:
Postal Code:
Mobile phone number:
Date you want to move in the apartment:
Rental period that you want to stay:

Now let me to explain you how the transaction it works:

After I received all this details, I can go to AirBnb office and start the transaction. When they will have the keys and the real estate company on them custody, they will send you a delivery notification, in which they tell you that they have the keys and that they checked it.

When you receive the delivery notification from AirBnb, you will have to go your bank office and make a bank transfer on the AirBnb in United Kingdom, assigned with this transaction for the amount we agreed ( 2.000 Euro ). If you don` have time to go to your bank office you can make the payment online to the bank account of the AirBnb. I must to tell you that the payment must to be made in 24 hours or early after the transaction was started.

After you make the deposit you will have to send to AirBnb the payment confirmations from bank money transfer, so they can know that you already made the deposit. AirBnb will verify the payment and if everything is in order they will delivery the keys and the rental contract to you in 48 Hours. AirBnb will send to you an agent at your house door, and that person will come with you to visit the apartment to see that all is right. If you will be satisfied with the flat, you will sign the rental contract. However, if you are not pleased with the apartment for any reason, the agent will give your money back immediately, and I will get my keys and documents back ( I will write on the rental contract this condition, to be sure that you will get your money back ).

Also, in case you have another apartment right now, and you can't move immediately, we can make the deal as I explained it now, and consider it only an inspection and reservation until you will be able to move there.

I will pay for the services of the agency, so there will be no costs for you.

I am waiting for your quick response, because there are several others interested in the apartment, and I need to know if I can count on a deal with you.

Kind Regards!
