Thank you for your reply. As I said, the total price which you'll have to pay for one month of rent (warm miete) will be €600, no additional costs.
I would like to receive the monthly rent directly to my british bank account.
In order to view the flat and settle a deal, you will need the keys, and the contract .
Obviously we need a safe and fast way to complete this deal.
A friend of mine has had a similar situation which he solved using the services of Urgent Logistics (www.urgent-logistics.uk.cm) which is a very good british delivery company.
They will handle the delivery of the keys and also the payments .
If you are ready to rent this flat, I must explain you how this service works and what we need to do.
You will need to deposit the first month of rent (€600) plus the security deposit (kaution) of €600 to Urgent Logistics, so they can proceed with the delivery of the keys and the contract.
This is a guarantee that nothing happens to the goods inside the apartment, during your inspection (of course you get the money back if you are not satisfied).
I will pay for the 24 hours air delivery so you'll receive the keys and the signed contract straight away.
Here's how it works :
1 - To start this transaction, I need your full contact information (full name, full shipping address, telephone number)
2 - I will go to a local Urgent Logistics office and leave the Keys and the contract on your name as the intended receiver.
3 - Urgent Logistics will check the envelope to see if everything is OK with it and also the legal papers that will come along with the Keys. After this, they will send you an email notification.
4 - At this point you'll have to make the above mentioned money deposit to Urgent Logistics, for the first month of rent and for the kaution (which you get back when you leave the apartment).
5 - After you pay the deposit you'll have to confirm it to Urgent Logistics .
6 - Urgent Logistics will verify the payment information, and if everything is in order they will deliver the Keys and the contract to you .
7 - After you receive everything, you must go and check the apartment and in the next 2 days you must contact Urgent Logistics to tell them if you are satisfied or not.
If all is in order, you'll instruct Urgent Logistics to release the money to me.
However, if you are not pleased with the apartment for any reason, they will return your money and you'll send me the keys back by post.
I will pay for the Urgent Logistics services so there will be no extra costs for you.
If you have the €1200 ready (the rent for 1 month-€600 and the kaution-€600) and if you're ready to begin this transaction, please tell me your full name and shipping address, and I'll start the procedure.
You'll receive a notification and important instructions from Urgent Logistics (please go through them exactly).
Also, in case you have another apartment right now, and you cannot move in immediately, we can make the deal as I explained it now, and consider it only an inspection and reservation. You will move in when you are ready and the first rent will be considered for that month, not for right now.
Let me know if this is ok.
I am waiting for your quick answer because there are several others interested in the apartment, and I need to know if I can count on a deal with you.

Thank you for your reply. Like I said, the total price which you'll have to pay for one month of rent will be €600,
no extra charges. I would like to receive the monthly rent directly to my english bank account.
In order to check the flat and see if you like it (I'm think you will), you need to receive the keys,
the full address and the contract. Obviously we need a way to complete this deal in a safe and fast way for the both of us.
A friend of mine has had a similar situation which he solved using the SDK Logistics service.
SDK Logistics (www.SDK.uk.tp) is a delivery company, similar to FedEx, DHL or UPS. They will handle the payment and delivery of the Keys .
If you are ready to proceed with this transaction I must explain you how this service works and what we need to do.
You have to deposit to the SDK Logistics the first month of rent: €600, plus a security deposit (kaution) of €600 so they can proceed with the delivery of the keys and the contract. This is a guarantee that nothing happens to the keys, or to the goods inside the apartment during your inspection.
Like I said, I will pay for 24 hours airplane delivery so you'll receive the Keys and the contract signed by me right away.
I will explain you step by step how this works :
1 - To start this transaction i need to know your full shipping information (full name, full shipping address, telephone number)
2 - I go to a SDK Logistics Office and leave the Keys and the contract on your name as the intended receiver.
3 - SDK Logistics will check the envelope to see if everything is OK with it and also the legal papers that will come along with the Keys.
4 - They will send you a delivery notification to let you know they have the Keys and the papers in their custody.
5 - At this point you'll have to make a money deposit to SDK Logistics, for the amount we agreed, the total amount you shall deposit is for the first month of rent and for the security deposit (which you get back when you finish using the apartment) .
6 - After you pay the deposit you'll have to send the info about the money deposit to SDK Logistics .
7 - SDK Logistics will verify the payment information and if everything is in order they will deliver the Keys and the contract to you .
8 - After you receive the package, You must go and check the apartment and in the next 2 days you must contact SDK Logistics to tell them if you'll use it or not. if all is in order you'll instruct SDK Logistics to release the money to me.
On the other hand, if you don`t like the apartment for some reason they will return your money and you'll send them the keys and the contract so I can recover them.
I will pay for the SDK Logistics Service and for the shipping so there will be no extra costs for you.
If you have the €1200 ready (the rent for 1 month-€600 and the kaution-€600) and if you're ready to begin this transaction, please tell me your full name and shipping address, and I'll start the official procedure, and SDK Logistics will notify you about this matter.
You'll also receive important guidelines plus instructions from them (please go through them exactly).
I just came back from SDK Logistics. Luckily they work on Sundays too.
I gave them the keys, the signed rental contract , and a copy after the title of ownership
they said they will email you with details for paying one month rent, and the kaution as guarantee. Then, they will deliver the package within 24 hours of your payment.
Here is the number of delivery: deleted
You can then go inside and have a look at the place. If you like it, you will then confirm SDK Logistics by email and they will release the money to me , and you can move right in. On the other hand, if you're not satisfied, they will refund you the money, and give you instructions on how to send the keys and everything back to me.
However, I am sure you will love it (more than 80.000 euro spent on decoration, furniture and appliances.)
So, If you have a chance to arrange everything today, tomorrow the keys will be there and you can go see it.
I am looking forward to your reply.
Have a nice day!
