Information for those renting short-term properties or looking for roommates
You can protect yourself by taking a few key steps when renting space:
- Do not rent your space to someone without meeting that person or, for those who use short-term rental services like AirBnB, only rent to approved, confirmed persons.
- For those renting to roommates - do not rent your space without receiving a damage deposit.
