This review was chosen algorithmically as the most valued customer feedback.

I encountered issues while staying at a room I booked through their platform. The listing promised an individual lock, but upon arrival, the lock was broken. The landlord couldn't fix it immediately and asked me to wait for 2-3 days. Due to concerns about the safety of my valuables, I had to cancel the booking. I reached out to their team for a refund of...

Housing Anywhere Payment methods

Housinganywhere.com is advertising in Portugal and do not have any payment methods available for Portuguese bank accounts. All the banks methods you need are German, Polish, or Austria bank account or Netherlands bank account. They should not be advertising in Portugal is there is no appropriate payment methods attached to a Portuguese bank account.

Desired outcome: I would like to see Portuguese bank accounts accepted on the website or approve the use of a debit card, it has put me in a bind

Housing Anywhere Cancellation policy & refund

I made a booking for a room in Munich. Upon arrival, I noticed that the apartment was in a terrible condition. There were tears in the kitchen floor, kitchen itself was also starting to chip and fall apart here and there. The Bathrooms were so filthy that I would never feel comfortable stepping into the shower without slippers. Even the tenants there immediately informed me that Housing Anywhere does not care about improving the conditions in the apartments, or even bother to stop by on occasion to inspect the conditions. Therefore, I decided to cancel the booking the next morning, still within the first 24 hours of making the booking. The cancellation went through, but Housing Anywhere decided that they do not want to refund me the service fee of €166.25. I took a few photos of the damages and filth in the apartment and shared this with customer service when trying to get my refund, but this seemed to be an acceptable standard for HousingAnywhere. They claimed that "After reviewing the images I provided, it appears that the accommodation aligns with the pictures available on the listing page." Obviously the pictures do not accurately depict everything wrong with the apartment. These wide angle photos do not allow customer service to see enough details in the photos to make an informed decision. Now in hindsight, I know I should have taken a lot more and a lot closer photos to really see the damages and filth, but I never imagined Housing Anywhere would make it so difficult to get a full refund. Anyone who enters the apartment in real life would agree with what I am saying, and I find it extremely disrespectful and extremely unethical to be taken advantage like this by such a large company. If possible I would love to go back to the apartment with someone working for Housing Anywhere so the can see the truth of the apartment in person.

Desired outcome: I want a full refund. The service fee of €166.25 euros still has not been refunded.

Is Housing Anywhere legit?

Our verdict: Complaints Board rates Housing Anywhere highly, signaling it as a legitimate option for users seeking reliable services. Despite this endorsement, the 0% resolution rate for complaints about Housing Anywhere raises questions. Diligently reviewing Housing Anywhere's client feedback and resolution practices is recommended for those considering Housing Anywhere's services, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of its legitimacy and commitment to customer satisfaction.

Housing Anywhere earns 81% level of Trustworthiness

Excellent Trust Notice: Housing Anywhere near-perfect at 81% trust. Use with confidence, maintaining usual caution.

We found clear and detailed contact information for Housing Anywhere. The company provides a physical address, 7 phone numbers, and 2 emails, as well as 4 social media accounts. This demonstrates a commitment to customer service and transparency, which is a positive sign for building trust with customers.

Housinganywhere.com has a valid SSL certificate, which indicates that the website is secure and trustworthy. Look for the padlock icon in the browser and the "https" prefix in the URL to confirm that the website is using SSL.

Several positive reviews for Housing Anywhere have been found on various review sites. While this may be a good sign, it is important to approach these reviews with caution and consider the possibility of fake or biased reviews.

We looked up Housing Anywhere and found that the website is receiving a high amount of traffic. This could be a sign of a popular and trustworthy website, but it is still important to exercise caution and verify the legitimacy of the site before sharing any personal or financial information

This website offers payment methods that provide the option for customers to get their money back, which could be a positive indicator of the company's commitment to customer satisfaction.

However ComplaintsBoard has detected that:

  • Housing Anywhere's complaint resolution process is inadequate and ineffective. The support team lacks customer service skills, training, and resources, resulting in only 0% of 0 complaints being resolved.
  • Housinganywhere.com to appear inactive or unused, such as technical issues or a temporary shutdown. In any case, if you are having trouble getting a response from the company or recovering your money, it may be wise to take further steps to protect yourself, such as seeking a chargeback from your bank or contacting a relevant consumer protection agency.
  • Housing Anywhere protects their ownership data, a common and legal practice. However, from our perspective, this lack of transparency can impede trust and accountability, which are essential for establishing a credible and respected business entity.

Housing Anywhere Booking of apartment in March 2023

TLDR;

Don’t use their platform. Total scam.

I booked an apartment for 3 months starting March 2023 over their website.

Exactly 24 hours after the booking confirmation (the period where you can still cancel the booking) the advertiser started ignoring my messages.

After contacting housinganywhere.com support i finally reached them (on the day of the move in).

They were still ignoring all(!) my questions, including me asking for a reason why they ignored my attempts to contact them for a week.

Instead they say “meet you today”. How can i move apartments on such a short notice?

According to housinganywhere.com cancellation policy i should be eligible for a refund (their cancellation form even has a checkbox for “unresponsive advertiser” (I’m paraphrasing).

15.16.2.5.

The accommodation is not available for the tenant's use for the agreed lease (for example, there is already someone else in the accommodation or the accommodation does not exist at all); or

15.16.2.6.

The tenant is not able to move into the accommodation due to circumstances that were unforeseeable when the booking was

made and are not attributable (toerekenbaar) to the tenant within the meaning of article 6:75 of the Dutch Civil Code (force majeure/

overmacht), but excluding for clarity and without limitation change of plans, travel delays and illness which will remain the risk of the tenant.

But they wont give you a refund, stating :

“Dear Steven,

Thank you for you message, and we are sorry for your unpleasant experience.

At the moment, according to our Terms and Conditions you are not eligible for a refund. Additionally, you still have the opportunity to move-in. We have contacted the landlord. In the listing it is also clearly stated what the move-in date is. Have you tried contacting the landlord again and have another attempt of moving-in.

Best regards,

Gabriel”

Total scam.

Housing Anywhere a commission they agreed to pay and should have refunded

in december, a booking has been made throught their site for my studio. after discussion with the tenant, he wants to stay a shorter period (2 months) than what indicated in the booking syst (1 year) of housing anywhere . consequently the commission is not 444€ but much lighter . housing promised to refund but they NEVER DID ! i called approx 20 times and i'm now totally fed up ! could you please ask them to refund what should be done . also, I should be paid back on my current banking account and not by "credit" as i will probably never never work again with them -

i will add a picture of the 444€ they never credited (+444 x2 and -444 = 444€ still due to me ! they are really fooling people around !)

thanks for your help

Housing Anywhere Scam

I rented an apartment in Berlin through housing anywhere
The owner said that we cannot put our names on letter box because she rented it illegally, and asked I and my family to register on another apartment while staying in same apartment.
And I said to the landlord it is illegal and she asked someone in housing anywhere and I received an email from housing anywhere that do as landlord says
When I asked them it is illegal, they simply said it is between you and landlord.
Having any legal contract on housing anywhere, we (I along with my kids) were forced by landlord to move with kids one month before the agreement ends.
Ossastr. 45, 12045 Berlin this is the address

Desired outcome: Action against landlord

Housing Anywhere Rental property in Florence, Italy from October 4, 2021 to February 28, 2022. Property owner Alessandro Romito.

I don't know if this complaint is still valid after so many months have passed, but the main reason why I postponed writing this complaint is that I was not sure if it is worth it. But my flatmates finally encouraged me to do so. My main complaint is that the price indicated on the site and the total amount that I had to pay are strikingly different.

Firstly, after I moved in, I had to pay not only a deposit - the amount indicated on the website when booking, but also immediately pay the amount for the first month. Such terms of agreement are not specified on the website. During all those months that I lived in this apartment, I constantly had to pay more, because the landlord demanded this. At the end of December 2021, I had to pay 60 euros to be registered with the local migration agency. I was not informed about this in advance, the owner of the apartment only did it in December 2021.

Secondly, there were multiple problems with amenities. The sink in the women's bathroom didn't work and neither did the microwave. Other devices subsequently broke down instantly and were not replaced.

And at the end of February 2022, when I was already moving out, the owner of the apartment asked me to pay for the termination of the rental contract! Other tenants who moved out were also made this demand. Why are such terms not indicated here on the site? In response to my claims, the owner announced that I had already signed a contract in Italian, where I'm obliged to pay all these amounts. It all looked like a scamming and a client deceiving.

In any case, the amount that I had to pay according to the conditions on this site is very different from what I had to pay in the end. If this is not fraudulent, then it is nothing but deceiving the client. In order to pay the amount to terminate the contract, I had to pay half of my deposit for it. My flatmates were also quite unpleasantly surprised by similar demands for additional payments. Yet this account is still rated as an "excellent advertiser": https://housinganywhere.com/users/show/219027

I do not request for a refund of any sums of money. But I would like this user not to be rated as "excellent advertiser". Also, it would be very good if he would discuss with a potential client ALL the necessary expenses initially, without deception and misleading his tenants.

Desired outcome: Initial indication of all required payments

Housing Anywhere Thieves

Housinganywhere didn't return any deservered refund to me and 95% of their advertisements are from Italian real-estate agents (Stefano & Teresa & Garbiela). The 3 persons work together in an office in "ul. Dietla 57, Krakow, Poland" while Stefano is the boss. This is a terrible agent who would steal your money and would make lease agreements that include ridiculous points that guarantee they earn maximum amount of money from you in all situations, and he doesn't respect any appointments as he can be late for any appointment with 6 or more hours. He threatens everyone who tries to reject such apartments after visiting them by law or going against GDPR and he doesn't return deserved refunds in such cases. He is the rudest impolite person I've ever seen in my life. Please serve your self and avoid these thieves.

Housing Anywhere I would like a refund, as I was legally promised.

I moved back to Hamburg after a terrible experience renting in Berlin. A massively traumatic start, considering how easy and fair HousingAnywhere's policies seemed... How wrong I was. I was charged the platform fee and a month's rent straight off, having done all the right things to mitigate the worst circumstances, I thought everything was going to be all right.

I communicated on the platform, I spoke to several staff who were fast (but curt) and then, just as they had taken my money, all the communication stopped. I had to chase and chase for any sort of answer. I wanted to cancel, due to a change of personal circumstances and moreover, having visited the building and finding it "not as described" (something which is very much in the T&Cs as a golden rule). I've tried to explain to them over the phone (apparently there is no dispute team you can reach over the phone) and this has resulted in a long email thread of accusatory messaging where they've said that as I can't provide evidence (I'm being ghosted by Katherine Hübner, the owner) I'm not entitled to a refund. They've got my messages that I've deliberately kept on the platform rather than moving any communication over email, and that still doesn't seem to be enough. I did the right thing in every instance; was fair, transparent and obliging, offering ways for them to help support my claim. These were all refused.

And it was bad as it looks in the pictures: a converted office was being put up in one of the rougher areas of Hamburg, and frankly shouldn't have been let anywhere near the site anyway. There's no vetting process, like other platforms (ie. Spotahome) and there's no adequate customer service (like Airbnb, where it's a straight up, no frills "customer is always right" experience). They've taken my money and run, simply put.

I've lost nearly 1000 Euros to this sham of a site, with its T&Cs which they seem to interpret as they please. I'm in the process of seeking legal help and have issued a chargeback but it feels unlikely that I'll ever get my money back. I don't want others to fall prey to this and want people to know that there's solidarity in this absolutely horrific experience which I've been trying to appeal for over a month now.

I got a similar experience with Housing Anywhere in Berlin. Very traumatic!

The advertiser is a scammer, taking advantage of people who don’t speak German, his place is a mess and he is subletting- I don’t know if he is allowed to! I speak German fluently and know the legislation.

I lost 650€, my old place in a smaller city and got through a lot of stress!

Don’t use this platform: it’s a nest for scammers and it is a scam itself since they are not respecting their own terms and conditions!

Housing Anywhere False advertising, not what I paid for

I've used this service expecting to be protected by paying a fee. I've rented an apratment between 04.01.2022 and 30.04.2022. If there's any issues with the landlords, they do not give a damn. Landlord turned out to be a scammer and guess what, of course they did not help and were even saying that I didn't need to request invoices because otherwise would be too expensive for me. The landlord and this platform took my money and I only got half of the invoices. Anyone for a classe action lawsuit?

Desired outcome: They would give me my invoices and change their business because this is a scam to me

Housing Anywhere Avoid at any cost !

I booked a room at HousingAnywhere and I faced the issues below :

1. The advertiser asked you for a higher deposit than what was advertised

2. The kitchen is different from the one in the advertisement

3. Utilities and appliances not safe to use.

4. Cleanliness issues

5. The buildings front door handle is broken.

6. Mold odor by an unthread mold in the shower ceiling that received just a painting according to one of the tenants. There is also a liking informed. As you can see in the pictures a light-colored paint appears a darkened color

7. Unsafe Dryer vent installation with a flammate dryer vent. They are illegal by most building codes for new homes

I am requesting a cancelation inside the time permited and contacted the support but still did not any cancelation confirmation and the agency is keeping my deposit in the toatl of 2.4K.

Housing Anywhere Refund of one month insurance deposit

After greetings,
I would like to express my extreme disappointment about the insurance refund. I demand a full refund of my ONE MONTH insurance deposit by this week or otherwise I'll have to take extreme measures. I sent you all the details and how the advertising agency is stalling for the refunding procedure of my insurance deposit for almost a month and half. In addition this, asking for my credit card details which is a direct felony that redeems the advertiser and housinganywhere company. I demand again a full refund of my insurance.

Thanks

Housing Anywhere Not providing accommodation service after payment and refusing refund

Fraud. I booked an accommodation with this site. Canceled a day later but I was informed it will be up to the advertiser (property owner) to accept the cancellation.

I was later informed that the advertiser refused the cancellation. I contacted the advertiser and they said they accepted the cancellation. I requested for a refund and I was told the money is now with the advertiser; at thesame time, the advertiser has advised me to contact housinganywhere. So now housinganywhere are dealing with me fraudulently.

Either they are keeping my money or have connected me with an advertiser who cannot provide an accommodation. they've decided they will keep the money.

Housing Anywhere False booking, service not provided

Hello! I used this platform this August and here what has happened: First, I booked a room and waited for 1 month for the contract to be sent. My money was taken from my account. I wrote thousands of emails and HousingAnywhere assured me that the room was successfully booked. However, before moving in they sent me an email that it was a double booking and I was left without any accommodation at all at last minute.
Be careful! After that, I found another room on their website and booked it again. The room did not correspond to the reality at all. I tried to contact the support to help me but they deleted my account and never answered. Good job.

Housing Anywhere Apartment rental - We have not received the service we have paid for

I wrote the below email two days ago,
I did not receive any reply from the landlord or the agent.

Hi Michela,

I must warn you that you sold us the Il Fienile apartment of *** in Lamporecchio,
from 28th August, 2021 to 28th September 2021,
via https://housinganywhere.com/
please find attached pictures.

I wrote you a message two days before the rental start date, but I did not receive any reply.
I called you several times from the car,
when I could finally reach you,
you said that you sent an email with the precise address (which I could not find).

However based on the reservation ... we found the object.

The owner of *** told us, that you left an address at her, to redirect us when we arrive.
We showed her our reservation, she replied that she did not hear anything about us until a few hours earlier,
when she told you that Medioevale is fully booked, she cannot give us any apartment.

I hope, that this was a mistake, Via ***is not the same as Via ***, for sure.
I would not have paid not much as two cents for an apartment without air condition.
We spent significant time on selecting our home in Italy, with the sporting facilities, kitchen equipment, etc.
There's no microwave oven, dishwasher, not even a toaster or an electric kettle in the substituting apartment.

You did not inform us e.g. a month ago, that you have to change the house for any reason,
this way giving us an opportunity to cancel our reservation and to find another facility that can meet our expectations.

The owner of the originally selected flat said that the apartment will be empty between
11th September - 28th September.

So please arrange until the end of Tuesday (31st August) that we can move in the originally stipulated apartment at the latest on 11th September, and live there until 28th September.
This way we prove our readiness of cooperation that we accept the supplementary, (lower equipped) apartment for the first two weeks.

As I wrote you, we are ERP consultants, we came here to work...

Should you fail to organize the original apartment,
I will need to find the possible widest press, social media and legal opportunities to prevent this fraud could ever happen with anybody else in the future.

The owner of ***will also be affected,
since the reputation of her house can get corrupted during a process like this (eg. releasing the pictures of the case, etc.)

Dear HousingAnywhere,

We have not received the service we have paid for.
I would like to ask you to block the payment to Michela, until the agreement is fulfilled with the original conditions (Il Fienile apartment of ***).

Thank you,

Housing Anywhere Booking got canceled one day before the move-in day

Booking got canceled one day before the move-in day!

Those who are going to use the services of this booking website should be careful and aware!

HousingAnywhere is large in Germany, and there is a third-platform guarantee mechanism (money will not be transferred directly to the landlord but will be kept by the platform first, and will be transferred to the landlord after 48 hours after check-in). So I booked a room through Housing anywhere at the beginning of July. I paid the first month's rent to the platform, and then received the booking confirmation from both HousingAnywhere and the landlord. The booking period is from 14.08.2020 to 15.11.2020.

HOWEVER, one day before the move-in date (13.08.2020), I received the booking cancellation email! The cancellation was notified one day before the check-in, the reason for cancellation is "system problem". But from the day that I made the booking until arrival, I have been in contact with the landlord to confirm the reservation, how to pick up the key handover and other issues, giving me "system problem" as an excuse made me feel so outrageous and ridiculous...

I was already on my way to Berlin (arrived at the airport), with all my luggages, and suddenly I was told that there was no place to live... I felt shocked and absurd... I tried to confirm the situation with HousingAnywhere and the landlord. The landlord didn't reply to me. One customer specialist from HousingAnywhere replied that the room has been canceled for sure, and the platform will refund the first-month rent. However, other than that (getting back what I've paid), there are no compensations for this temporary cancellation. And due to the cancellation in such short notice, I had to book a hostel/hotel room at the last minute for almost one week so that I had some time to find accommodation. The only offer/solution HousingAnywhere can provide was asking me to book new accommodation on their website, and the customer service will help speed up the process... Wow-what a good service!

After what happened, how would I trust HousingAnywhere and book a room with them again?
This was the worst booking experience that I had so far and feels like a scam. If I knew this would happen, I will first book a short term accommodation for 2 weeks to 1 month and try to visit the place/room by myself during these days. Because my friends who live here also think the accommodation on HousingAnywhere is mostly over the price (Yes, the accommodation is expensive and hard to find in Berlin, but still not that bad as on the platform, and don't forget if you used their "good" service they will also charge 150 euro, one-time processing fee).

On this afternoon, Tuesdady, seventeen December 2019 I was unable to get into the internet. Have not been able to get into the internet since this past afternoon.

Housing Anywhere scam

Please make sure you don't get lured into the scam! I booked a place with the supposedly excellent advertiser "Anne 31" and all the required information were only revealed to me after the money is deducted from my account, and it turns out that the email and phone number provided on the website is not valid, and she asked me to pay a deposit of 1000+ euros on the "Medici-living" website, and it's not functioning and I can't validate my email, so I got suspicious and asked Anne why should I pay the deposit upfront and she just ignores my questions for several times, and I searched for the housing agency online and it turns out it has terrible reputation and many people didn't get their deposit back even if they left the room in perfect condition. So I changed my mind and asked the customer service on housinganywhere for help and they didn't do anything except for convincing me that the advertiser and the housing agency is legit. When I asked about the deposit, they ignored my question again. And I saw on their condition that if you make a transaction with the housing agency their "excellent advertiser" provided, they will not take any responsibility for any potential financial loss. So I made sure to keep the chatting history with their customer service staff and requested a refund within an hour after booking, I still lost 150 euros! What a scam! Please DO NOT USE HOUSINGANYWHERE, if you prefer to to get scammed :)))
