As soon as you come to an agreement with an advertiser and they accept you as a tenant, you can initiate the safe payment procedure.
Some of the advantages of using our payment system are:
- Peace of mind: HousingAnywhere.com provides many safeguards to protect you from being scammed. If you pay outside HousingAnywhere.com, you are exposed to risks of fraud, such as money-transfer scams.
- Secure payment: You do not transfer your payment to the advertiser’s account without having seen the room. HousingAnywhere keeps your money safe until 48 hours after the move-in date (as registered on the platform).
- Online booking: Book your next home before you arrive in your new city. You save on the cost of a few weeks in a hotel, meetings with agencies, visits, and administrative procedures. You just have to unpack your suitcase in a furnished room!
- A guarantee that the room will be as advertised in the listing: When you move into your room, you have 48 hours to check it and to notify HousingAnywhere if there are any problems. If the room or the rental terms are not as stated in the listing, you will be fully refunded (first month's rent + service fee).
- Get your new address several months in advance: when going on exchange abroad, universities may ask you to already have an address to validate your admission. You may also need an address in order to get your visa if you come from a country outside the European Union
