What to ASK?
You will have with a number of different condo for rent in Saigon, leading you to have many questions, the first of which being “which inquiries should I request?”. Therefore, here are some suggestions:
Are utilities (electricity, gas, water) included in the monthly price?
Is there internet and cable or will I have to sign up for them myself?
Is it furnished?
How long will the rent be signed for? One year? 6 months?
Scooter parking – is it available? If so, where? Do I wish to pay extra?
When do I get my deposit back?
What is the penalty if I have to cancel the contract?

You probably say No:
Unfortunately, we, Housing Ho Chi Minh also don’t know. notwithstanding, you’re probably getting ripped off
You are charged more than two-months’ bond
The landlord/lady can’t produce any English-written contract for you
It’s not clear how utilities will be charged
You are charged extra ridiculous fees, such as finder’s fees, furniture rental, internet installation fees, etc.
