I got a residence permit while staying at an Air BnB and it was a really good short term option for me. I stayed about 3 months. My landlords spoke good English and get a lot of foreign guests, so they had done the residence permit process before. They put all the documents together and went to the police station with me. Not sure how the lease issue shook out, but I got the permit with what seemed like minimal issues. I’m sure it varies by officer and location, though. If anyone is interested, PM me and I can send the link to the property.
