Procedure of Renting Property in Malta

The procedure for renting property in Malta is fairly simple and straightforward. 

During an initial meeting, our letting agent will ask you for your requirements on the property for rent you are looking for, offering guidance and advice wherever required. 

Once we have your criteria in hand, we will suggest a few Malta properties that are suitable and schedule the viewings accordingly. 

Your letting agent will offer you transportation to and from the viewing in order to discuss your requirements better. 

Negotiating your future property for rent

Once you have chosen a Malta property, we will negotiate a rental price with the landlord. During the negotiating stage, our main aim is always to achieve a win-win outcome between the landlord and tenant. 

Letting Contract

The letting contract is then drafted up by your letting agent, ensuring that any specific terms – by either landlord or tenant – are included to safeguard both parties. Upon signing of contract, our standard procedure is to collect one month’s deposit, one month in advance, and another half month’s rent, however this is subject to change at the owner’s discretion. Where the total duration of the lease is less than six months, we collect a 10% deposit of the total amount.
