You will have to contact the landlord in Polish or English. Many of them leave an e-mail as a means of communication; look for the “Napisz wiadomość”- “write a message” option on the website. Or we can recommend using SMS communication, so you will have time to write a response in a foreign language, but it is better, of course, to ask someone from Polish friends to help you.

How much does it cost to rent an apartment?
Exact prices are indicated in online ads. The price, as in other countries, depends on the location of the apartment, the number of rooms, furniture and the quality of the repair. Usually indicated is “czynsz” – a monthly fee, but you need to find out how much the average payment for utility bills which is paid separately. If “cena do negocjacji” is indicated, it means that the owner is ready to bargain. Some landlords indicate in the ad the need to pay deposit – this is the amount of money that is transferred to the landlord upon entering the apartment and is with him until you decide to change your place of residence. If during your stay you need to replace equipment, make cosmetic repairs, then this amount will be deducted from the deposit. In Polish, it is called “kaucja”.
P.S Once you arrive, check your appartment and take pictures of any damages you see. Discuss it with our landlord otherwise you may get part of your deposit in the end of your stay.
