Hello,

Before I will start the transaction with Airbnb, I want to make all clear. Please read good and let me know if you don't understand something.

1- I will send your details to Airbnb (please make sure that your details are correct) :



Amount to pay: 5.500€


2- Airbnb will send the invoice with details of the transaction.
3- The payment must be sent to Airbnb before you get the keys.
4- After I will receive the confirmation from Airbnb that the transfer is made, I will send the package with the rental agreement and the apartment keys.
5- After you will receive the keys, you will have 5 days to visit the apartment before you decide to rent it or not.
6- If you do not like the apartment, Airbnb will refund the transfer to your bank account. If you choose to rent it, Airbnb will send the transfer to my bank account.

Now if everything is clear and you are agree, let me know and I will contact Airbnb to start the transaction.
Thank you,

Hello,


The rental contract validity is from 1 month to 10 years (with possibility of extension).
The rent is 500€ per month. The deposit is 1.000€. The total amount to pay is 1.500€ (1 month rent and the deposit).
In the monthly rent you have included: Water, Gas, Electricity, TV-Internet connection, 2 Parking places, waste disposal.

I am ready to send the keys so that you can visit and check the apartment. The rental process will be made through Airbnb (airbnb. com). They will also help us as a third party to make the transaction.
Airbnb rental process service give a protection for both of us and it works like this:

-The money must be sent to Airbnb before you will receive the keys.
-After I will receive the confirmation from Airbnb that the transfer was made, I will send the package with the rental contract and the apartment keys.
- I will send the delivery confirmation to you and to Airbnb.
- You will have 5 days to verify the apartment and take a decision.
- If you don't like the apartment, Airbnb will refund the transfer to your bank account. If you decide to rent it, Airbnb will send the transfer to my bank account.

To start the transaction I need the following information:

Full name:
Street:
City:
Postal Code:
Country:
Mobile number:

- If you want to pay in advance for 6 months or 1 year, I can make a discount. For 6 months you will pay 2.500€ ( + 1.000€ the deposit) and for 1 year you will pay 4.500€ ( + 1.000€ the deposit).
- How much do you want to pay: 1.500€ (1 month rent and the deposit included), 3.500€ (for 6 months and the deposit included) or 5.500€ (for 1 year and the deposit included)?

I'll pay for the services of the agency, so there is no cost for you!
Thank you,

Hello
I was facing the same situation with this guy. I wanted to rent an apartment in Germany.
unfortunately for him I know this kind of scan which was 10 years ago used to sell cars in Germany.
The pictures of the appartment were very nice and it was cheap in comparison with the standards.
Please be careful.
