ska 8 | 13 8 Sep 2015 #1Hi,As a group of international students, we have been searching for flats to rent, and are finally close to choose one. We are very close to choose a flat and to sign the lease contract. Then suddenly, we are struck with a high real estate agency's cost (50% of 1 month rent). I mean, he has shown us this flat (when we contacted him via gumtree) but I don't know his cost would be borne out of us. We thought that such cost should be paid by the landlords who clearly hired the agency to work for them. We also feel like the agent did not explicitely tell us. Is this a typical and widespread practice in Wroclaw, Poland?
