Just an update. As you've already read, the landlord liked the look of us and offered us the apartment on the spot. Contract's been drawn up, signed, stamped, and we officially take possession tomorrow.

So we're going down there this afternoon to pick up the keys, sign the handover protocol, etc. and we've been asked to...


... wait for it...



BRING CASH.

It is probably obvious but get a receipt.
Good luck with the move and letting your old place.
Yep, got a receipt from the agent; a copy of his receipt from the bank should follow in a day or two. (They've already opened the account for our security deposit, but didn't have time to get payment slips posted from the bank and forward them to us... hence the cash request.)

The handover protocol this afternoon - whew! The agent went through every room with a checklist and a magnifying glass practically, then asked us to look ourselves just in case he'd missed anything. The whole procedure took over an hour and a half (for a five-room flat) and I tell you I felt like a wretched ingrate the whole time, going round pointing out tiny scratches in the bathtub and making him write them down, when all I really wanted to do was dance around the living room in my socks for sheer joy. Did plenty of that once he'd gone though so it's all good.
