Re: Transferwise do cheap transfers but more important can provide US, UK and Aus bank accounts

Re: Handing back apartment to landlord

Re: Tenancy agreements/leases and your rights as a tenant

Well there you are; you've helped yourself. Please post a link to the guide for others. Being able to quote ad infinitum and verbatim from an actual source is a good way to bloody the noses of these rapacious bastards.
