Advisory: Rentola Finland
Rentola is a housing search engine operating in numerous countries, and expanding its activities in Finland. Research quickly discloses a barrage of "spam / fraud site" complaints, along with positive reviews which may or may not be genuine. Common complaints include subscriptions and fees which cannot be cancelled, and listed properties which do not exist or are unauthorised. For example, Finnish real estate group TA-Yhtiöt named rentola.fi as listing its properties without permission or the ability to effect rental agreements on its behalf.
