Apartment Deposit

2 posts in this topic

I've seen a couple of topic related to this but a bit old and maybe now might be a bit different.

So I was looking for an apartment and just got a positive answer. The landlord told me to sign the contract in a date we already scheduled and that he would be able to give me the keys immediately if I paid the deposit in money. If it was by transaction, he would only give the keys once the money reaches his account. 

 

I've seen a lot of topics saying that it is needed to create a bank account for the deposit purpose. However, if it's signed by both that I already paid the deposit (when and how much), will this be fine by law? (I am planning to go for the transaction, since it is also a lot of money to give by hand...)

I'd be wary - the landlord is not entitled to withhold the keys until you pay the deposit. In fact, you have the legal right to pay it in three monthly installments.

 

He may not know this or this may be a scam. Like I said, be careful.
