  1. Did you know that when you rent an apartment in many parts of Europe, the kitchen usually comes non-equipped? Yup, that’s right. You, the tenant, are responsible for purchasing and installing the entire kitchen. From cabinets to sinks to dishwashers and more; even hiring the plumber.
  2. Did you know that in New York, it is typical for the renter to pay a fee equal to one month’s rent to the agent who assisted him/her in finding the apartment of his/her choice?
  3. Did you know that in Germany, a landlord must have a legitimate reason for not renewing a lease? This offers great protection for the renter.
  4. Did you know that renting an apartment is referred to as “letting” an apartment in many parts of the world? The signs will often say “Apartment for Let”.

    • Clean and safe conditions of common areas
    • Smoke detection device
