AVOID A RENTAL SCAM

VISIT TO PROPERTY WITH THE OWNER/MANAGER:

Before taking any final step you should consider to take visit or revisit to the

property with the landlord or manager. Because getting a rental property through

online may get you down but, to make it confirm you should check again a visit to

the property with the owner / manager.

ADVANCE PAYMENT PLEASE:

Scammers will not target you they will target your money, if the landlord asks for

the advance payment, neglect it. They will make several excuses like renovation,

rewiring, fittings, etc. to make cash from you. Never make an advance payment

through money order, cards, visa, credit card, etc. Step out from that condition

and start your search for genuine landlords and rental property and the most

important thing is that never shares your bank details with them.

MEET LANDLORD:

Before signing any documents or before payments meet the landlord/Manger of

the building. Sometimes the scammer carries fake keys to use to open apartment,

homes, etc. you should check on the internet also about property owner, because

the landlord / manager will also use the internet to post their ads of rental

property on several websites. So it should be helpful to search for web or directly

meet with the owner /manager of the building.
