Check-in

Check-in times should be communicated by the landlord. Do not forget to make good pictures and a video of the property when arriving at the apartment. If you are not happy this is the time to let us know!

We will remind you when the check-out date is coming up. The deposit will be returned to you after you have checked out and the property is left as you have found it!
