I’ve heard that some newcomers are cheated by the host, one such case is with my American friend. He was asked to pay a 10k RMB down payment for duplex Accommodation in 肇庆 . However, the fact is rent is only 4k RMB.
Also, as he didn’t sign the lease documents, it was impossible for him to protect his rights for compensation claim through lodging an appeal not than this is a way you want to go with its red tape and having support in English (Legal cost in China to secure your rights 维权is expensive )
