Hey there,

Does anyone of you has experience with renting a flat in India (or similar developing countries)? I am going to Kolkata (Calcutta) for my intership next year for six months (I am environmental technology student). And I am willing to rent a flat in the city for that period. I am not sure this is actually possible for that six months. Is it possible too hire in India without (expensive) brokers?

Thanx,

PS: my employer is not able to give me accomodation and I'd rather not stay in budgethotels all the time (well only when necessary).

hi wouterrr,

yes, it's possible !

depending on the kind of apartment you fancy, i'd try different approaches.

you could check the classifieds or ask at the local lawyer, doc etc. (that's how i found my house) or try with a realtor.

good luck,
