Can anyone advise me if I was to rent a house for two months from a private renter rather than through a letting agency does it sound normal that they want a €500 security deposit and what sort of security do I have to get it back?
Any help received with thanks

If you are renting from a private individual they can ask you for whatever they want. No rules for private rentals. Also I can't see that you have any security at all in regards to getting your deposit back.

I thought that might be the case. I've never rented before and I must admit I wish I didn't have to cos trusting someone I don't know is proving to be a daunting experience
