A security deposit is required to cover additional costs in case of any damages or lost items from the apartment. The deposit total depends on the property size and the facilities included. The deposit will be refunded to the tenant after moving out, minus any claims for damages or missing items. The deposit is not used to pay for ongoing monthly costs. If this deposit is not paid on time, it will not be possible to move into the booked apartment.
