I've been in HK for a month but have used AirBnb to rent so far. However for the next two months I am wanting to rent a serviced apartment here. I already found a place and am going to check it out tomorrow. My only question is, what should I look out for in terms of a contract or whatnot? On AirBNB, your payment/agreement is done through their site, so you are 'protected' in that regard. So will a serviced apartment landlord usually have a contract? I am not too keen on handing over a bunch of cash with simply a hand shake I guess.
