Before renting a home and committing to a rental contract, it is important to take into account several aspects to start this new stage with guarantees. When can I terminate the contract? Can they raise the rent when the landlord wants? What happens if I share a flat with more people? These are some of the questions that must be taken into account.

Remember that...
