General tips for those who're looking for an apartment:
- Frauds are quite common when it comes to renting an apartment. If you find an amazing apartment 5 minutes to the city centre for 5,000 UAH - there's a 100% chance something is wrong with it (if it is not a small suburban town). Be careful!
- Ask for the documents for the apartment. If the owners are not ready to show you the documents for the apartment, better look for some other place.
- Do the research of the area/district of the apartment you've found. Sometimes commuting can be a time-consuming thing. Keep that in mind!
