Renting a residential or commercial property in Malta is a very simple procedure as anybody can sign a rental agreement quickly and move into the property of their choice instantly. But just like everything else in life, even the easiest things have their ‘INS’ and ‘OUTS especially when you are in a new country and this is where the services of a professionally run Real Estate company is necessary.
· Contact a real estate company with a reputation for letting property in Malta.
· Make a wish list.
· Dont be shy and ask all the questions required but be specific so that the agent does not do any unnecessary work which he does not need to.
· Make a short list of property in Malta that you preferred and view the top ones twice.
· Ask for a copy of the letting agreement before you sign it.
If you are signing an agreement for more than a year the price is usually negotiable by proximately 10%, any subsequent year you may be able to negotiate further.
If its shorter than a year the owner will probable not want to negotiate much but leave that to your real estate agent in Malta.
