In Poland, the standard deposit on a house or flat is the equivalent of one month’s rent.

That is: if you’re supposed to pay 1500 zł rent + utilities, you should expect to pay a deposit of 1500 zł. For high standard flats though the deposit may be 2 times the monthly rent.

The actual rates are not regulated by Polish law; however, the deposit must not be higher than 12 times the monthly rent.
