I recently arrived to BA. It has been challenging to find housing, so please help. I need to know the norm concerning deposits. I'm would like a shared space in a house or apartment.
One place I looked at requested asked for 4,months rent in advance. I nearly fell out of my chair. It wasn't an apt. It was a shared house with 5 rooms. Although the rent was not expensive, multiply that by 4 and it gets a little loco.
Please advise me on deposits and rental contracts. I feel that people see gringo and the dollar signs come out.
Thank you much and you will be eternally blessed. Well, you will be eternally blessed anyway.
