I need a scanner primarily for scanning black and white documents. What features shall I consider first of all when choosing one?

Olya... Are you planning to edit the documents once they're scanned or will you be scanning them as images? If you want to edit the scanned documents with a word processor, you'll need scanning software that supports OCR (Optical Character Recognition). Typically, scanning software that supports OCR isn't bundled with photo scanners. You would most likely have to purchase that separately.
