You are new to this city and have no idea about renting customs. What rents are acceptable and what are clearly rip-offs? Do I have to put down a deposit? What can I do if there are problems with my landlord or landlady? Don't worry: everybody who wants to rent a place in Munich for the first time has the same questions - and there is advice at hand.
Social department housing and refugee office
