Appointment for viewing the apartment:
If you view the apartment or meet your future housemates in a WG, you should remember that this conversation is like a job interview. That means:
- be on time
- wear nice clothing
- be friendly and smile
- take your ID, your decision on asylum, your pay slip, CV and reference letters with you
- take photos of the apartment – then you can remember the apartment better and you can proof that there are faults
- Ask for the energy performance certificate and have a look at the electronic devices. The worse the grade on the certificate, the higher your energy costs are going to be.
- Attention – in Austria you do not have to pay before you have signed the contract! Have a look at Google to see what a rental contract looks like.
