Thanks for your interest in the apartment, find the attached tenant application form for the apartment, fill and return via email along with your passport and permit page, i don't really need anything about your bank account history, we just want to be sure that we are given the house to someone who can take care of the house and pay the rent without inconvenient him or her self. I will be expecting your response. Have a wonderful day.
