General tips for those who're looking for an apartment:
- Frauds are quite common when it comes to renting the apartment. If you find an amazing apartment 5 minutes to the subway in the city center for 5,000 UAH - there's 100% chance something is wrong with it. The average prices for the apartment start from 8,000-9,000 UAH, and the closer to the center, the more expensive it gets. 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. Kyiv is a huge city so sometimes travelling around can be a time-consuming thing. Keep that in mind!
