If you've found an apartment that you're excited to move into, but it doesn't look like it did in the photos, there are steps you can take to address the situation.
- Before paying for an apartment, make sure you've seen it in person or via video call. This will ensure you know exactly what you're getting into.
- If you're unable to see the apartment in person, save all the photos that were online when you found the apartment. If you can view it in person, take a video of the entire apartment. In most cases, landlords in Scandinavia will be fine with this.
- If the apartment does not match the pictures or description, take photos and videos of the discrepancies and contact the landlord or rental agency. Schedule a meeting to discuss your concerns.
- If the situation is not resolved satisfactorily, consider seeking legal assistance or contacting agencies that specialize in landlord-tenant laws.
In summary, always make sure you have seen the apartment and have evidence in the form of photos and videos before making a payment. If there is a discrepancy, bring it to the attention of the landlord or rental agency and seek help if necessary.
