Hello again,

Thank you for the opportunity to continue the conversation in English.
The apartment is on the second floor. The apartment has a balcony. The apartment size is 57 m². The building has an elevator.
In the attachment file you can find the apartment photos. As i said, i live in Great Britain and i can't travel to show you the apartment (due to the current pandemic situation). I want to use Airbnb for the renting process. I left a copy of the keys at AirBnb and they will send an agent to meet with you and visit the apartment in his presence.

Here is the booking process:

1. I will send you the Airbnb invitation so you can choose the period and follow the steps to complete the booking and the payment on the Airbnb website.
2. After the payment is confirmed, you will be contacted by Airbnb to schedule an appointment with their agent. In his presence you visit the apartment and read the rental agreement. If you rent the apartment, Airbnb will send the payment to my bank account. If you don't want to rent the apartment, Airbnb will refund the entire amount to your bank account.

If you want to pay in advance for 6 months or 1 year, I can make a discount. For 6 months you will pay 3.400€ (the deposit is included) and for 1 year you will pay 5.200€ (the deposit is included).

How much do you want to pay: 1.500€ (1 month rent and the deposit included), 3.400€ (for 6 months and the deposit included) or 5.200€ (for 1 year and the deposit included)?

The rental agreement is a normal one and is for the long term. So you can stay in the apartment for as long as you want.
I will pay the agency fee. If you agree to continue, send me your: full name, address and phone number.

I also require you to send me a copy of your Identity Card (or Passport) so I can finalize the rental agreement. I am the apartment owner. I can provide you with all the necessary documents to apply for registration (Anmeldung).

P.S. As we cannot meet in person, please find a copy of my passport attached too.

Thank you, and I await your reply.
