House Searching
Searching for a house, begin a marketing search in your interesting area, asking everywhere, even if there no to let notices. Following, refer in the small newspaper announcements. If you will not find and there that you are looking for refer to an authentic local real estate agent. However, avoid the "seeming information offices", that are not real estate offices. Most times the "information" that gives you are superannuated and without any value. Generally, do not pay any fee as deposit, before you rent the house you found and interest you.

House Check
Check the house you found for rent very carefully without any hurry, as the condition that is with the persons that are going to live together with. If it is night ask to see it with the daylight. If there are visible faults ask for restaration or to be written in the rental contract. Check round the house to find all that you want (transport, market, schools etc.).

Economical Obligations
Do not hurry to rent a house if the rental is too high or is more than your economical possibilities. Always can be found another house with better economical terms. Also be notified about the rest economical obligations you accept (apartment house rules, communal, dealings, demotic dues etc.).

Do not ever throw rentals or deposits if you are not sure that the man who asks them is the real owner of the house you rent, or his plenipotentiary.

Renter Duration
Every main house rental has minimun length for the renter at least three(3) years from ots start, independently if in the hiring contract has been agreeded a less time spacing. However the renter can leave from the hired earlier than the three years, but before expires the time length he sign in the renting contract, without any economical consistency. After the three years expiration the rental usually continuous with a silent agreement owner and renter, until past tense. This means that the renter can leave when he wants and the owner can ask from the renter to leave when he wants.

Rental - Increase
In the hiring contract must be written always the agreeded rental. Any increase that is agreeded is valid, such for the time length of the first three years, and for the rest. Usually it is agreeded as yearly increment the percentage of the price index increased at 1-2 units. If the rental time length is less than three years, then for the rest years that needed to be completed the three years, in case of contracted argument it is prefigure yearly increment equal with the 75%of the price index increased at the last 12 months.

At a rental synapsis usually is given as a quarantee a deposit, one month rental for the old houses and two months rentals for the new houses, price that is returned at the renter departure, the house return to the owner and the clearance of all the economical suspensions.

Firstly it is announced a extrajudical invitation for the score payment. If the score pay out in a month, then the procedure stops directly here, except if that has happened in the past. If the score do not be pay out, directly is published and announcement "hired refund command" which is executed after 20 days. The renter has the rigth to train with his lawyer caveat at the command, showing warranty, like the payment of the score.
