Renting a flat in Warsaw for 9 months (no knowledge of Polish language) and prices

Hi,

I arrive in Warsaw in a few days and plan to rent a flat (for the next 9 month).
Can there be a problem with renting for less than a year (can landlords ask for higher price, etc.)?

Is it easy to rent a flat not knowing Polish?(are landlords, real estate agents generally know English/ willing to deal with English speakers)?

What is the average rent for a good but small studio (~30 meters) flat not far from the center (Warsaw)?
I've found these sites and would like to hear any opinions, if somebody used them.
domy.pl
dom.gratka.pl (many ads with suspiciously low rent, 1000-1200 zl.)

Thanks,

Hi! A decent studio right in the center is not far from 2,500 ZL (I used to own one for which I charged 2,500 ZL (high standard) and it was several years ago). If you see ads for 1,000 and alike, don't bother (rundown place, rundown building in lousy neighborhood full of alcoholics and other scum). Most landlords/real estate agents of course only speak Polish (why should they speak other languages?) but there are some real estate companies speaking English, French, German, Russian and whatever other languages since dealing (mostly) with expats. In order to have a list of serious agencies, contact your embassy and they'll give you serious contacts. Of course, in Poland like anywhere else don't say it's only for a short period of time.

Look on airbnb.com. Often people are offering decent monthly rates (select 4 weeks or more).

Thanks for quick responses,

"in Poland like anywhere else don't say it's only for a short period of time."
Do you mean at all (and with prior notice, it's easy to leave earlier without loosing a deposit or need to find another tenant) or just in the begging?

Also, is a usually required one month deposit a payment for the last month of stay or just money that is given back after leaving the flat?
