Another risk is that apartment may try to privatize employers.
The big risk is that employers may leave without paying. Even if the contract written passport data of the employer at the place of residence, but it does not appear, find it to be very difficult. So you need to have any additional information about the tenant. For example, you need to know the location of work, work phone, or phones of relatives. So, somehow, to protect themselves in such case specify in the contract the lease real rent. Then if the trial will be held, you get all the real amount, not a dummy.

Often tenants looking for yourself using the ads in the newspapers or on the Internet. Of course, thanks to this method, the number of clients increases. Disadvantages is that you can get to the scams. Sometimes it so happens that the apartments real estate agency, and it, in turn, puts your apartment various people for a short period of time. In any case, do not fall for the temptations of the tenant not to conclude the contract. You must enclose the required, because then, in case of any disagreement, without a contract you will not be able to prove anything. You can also find a tenant through the Agency. This is probably the safest method, although it is slightly more expensive.
