Okay. I visited Ghana and decided to move here from the U.S. I've been here for 4 days and staying at a hotel while searching for a single family detached house for rent. I've primarily been looking on Lamudi website and what I notice is that agents seem to put properties on the website that aren't available. They always say that property is no longer available, but we have some more properties (that are more expensive). Then I've heard about people renting properties (and even selling properties) that don't belong to them or people robbing you if you meet them with money on your person. So, my question is what is the best way to find a home rental in Ghana? Should I have an attorney to complete the transaction? How do you check to ensure that someone is a real agent or the real owner of a property for rent?
There is an agent pitching me a 3 br, 2 bath home with generator, electric wire fence, two AC units, and fitted kitchen in West Trassaco for $600 per month. This just seems very inexpensive from comparisons, so it naturally makes me skeptical. Again, I just want to take precautions before agreeing to meet with him.
