Procedure of renting with an agent (Madrid)
Hello everyone, me and my wife are looking for an appartment of 70 m2 in the area Chamberi. We have an option now but the real estate agent wanted us to make a deposit of his fee ( 1. Protected content . After that he will ask the landlord if he accepts us ( in Protected content ) We just met this agency and we didn’t even see a contract yet. In his pre-contract is written that if the landlord declines us we will get the money back. But not if we don’t agree with the contract. My opinion is that this is a strange way of doing business. First to pay a serious amount of money and then pray to get accepted without seeing anything. Is this the normal way?? And do you have tips??
If you have any other options with apartments let me know! Max price 1.300 euros with more than 70m2 with 1 bedroom, unfurnished and balcony.
Thank you for your help!!!
