In Canada there are strict laws about renting an apartment and it's your legal right to check the place and verify the documents before I will receive any funds from the property management company. Therefore I want to use Airbnb (www.airbnb.com) as the property management company that will make all the necessary arrangements for this transaction.

Airbnb just need my approval and your information so they can proceed with the transaction.
It's the first time for me doing a transaction like this so I want to follow the legal procedure. I can rent the apartment to you ONLY if you agree with the terms and conditions of Airbnb provided below.

-You need to provide me your information: full name (legal name that I will need for the lease agreement), mailing address (street, number, city and postal code), cell phone number, move-in date and length of the lease agreement (e.g. 6 months or 1 year rental contract with option of renewal). The lease agreement will be a standard one from the Canadian government.
- Airbnb will send you a notification(via email) with the transaction details, delivery details and payment information
- You need to send the amount of 2030$( first and last month of rent from contract) following the payment instructions provided to you in the notification.
THE PAYMENT NEEDS TO BE SENT WITHIN 24 BUSINESS HOURS AFTER YOU WILL RECEIVE THE TRANSACTION DETAILS OR ELSE THEY WILL CHARGE ME A PENALTY FEE.
- After the payment is completed you need to send the payment details to Airbnb.
- Airbnb will check the payment confirmation and I will start the shipping procedure through UPS Air Cargo.
- You will receive the package (keys, apartment documents and lease agreement) in 3 business days. After the keys will be delivered at your address you will have 5 business days (inspection time) to check the apartment. The inspection time will start from the moment you will be at the building.
- If you decide to keep the apartment you just need to sign the lease agreement and Airbnb can release the funds to me. If you don`t want to keep the apartment you will receive a full payment refund including any payment fee.

Please note that Airbnb can NOT release the funds without your approval. You will have full control of the payment. They can release the payment to me as a landlord just AFTER they will receive the lease agreement with your signature.

I NEED TO BE SURE THAT EVERYTHING IS CLEAR FOR YOU SO PLEASE READ CAREFULLY ALL THE STEPS OF THE TRANSACTION BECAUSE I CAN NOT CHANGE THEIR TERMS AND CONDITIONS. ALSO I WILL PAY FOR THE TRANSACTION AND DELIVERY FEES AND JUST IN CASE YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND I WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND FROM AIRBNB!

If you have any other questions you can reach my husband David any time at: +44 7487269423 (if you are calling from Canada you need to dial 011 44 7487269423) or you can email me your number and I can ask him to give you a call.

Let me know if you have the funds available (2030CAD$) so we can move forward and e-mail me your full information I requested.

Thank you
