As I mentioned in my first email, my current place of residence is: Utrecht, Netherlands, that is why I trusted Homeaway which offers a simple control process for owners and new tenants. They will check me as the owner of the apartment and you as potential tenant, because I travel already for a supposed tenant and when I arrived there he did not answer anymore. I have lost money and time.

If you agree with the process, please provide the following information:
- Complete the name of the future tenant;
- Current address ( street , city , country, zip code );
- Telephone number;
- Date when you want to move;
- Rental period you want to stay;
- How many person will stay in apartment;
- I need also a copy of your ID or passport to complete the lease agreement.

The price for 1 month of rent is 800 Euros and I want also 1000 Euro as deposit ( the kaution 1000 Euro you will receive back when you leave the apartment ). The rent I want to receive it monthly to my bank account.

After you will give me your details I will inscribe you as a tenant on Homeaway and make the reservation on your name. You will not pay any additional commission or other taxes.
Homeaway will send you the Booking that you must complete with all the required information.
Please let me know if you agree with my conditions.
I am waiting for your reply.

Thank you!
