I hope you can help clarify some thing.
Until now the home owners I had dealt with sent the contract via email; I would then read it, transfer the deposit and receive the paper-contract via postal service.
Yesterday a home owner ask for the deposit before she would send the contract!
Is this how it's done on the island?
Even though I intend to call before making a bank transfer, just hate to see my money, and energy go through the window.
Thank you for your help!
