Renting Property in Gozo Malta Malta

Despite its small size, there's a wide range of property in Gozo. This hasn't escaped the eye of the British property market, and it's easy to see why. Year round sunshine and a fantastic Mediterranean climate mean the whole archipelago is becoming more popular with Britons looking to buy a holiday home and/or start a new life in the sun. But before you jump feet first into buying property in Gozo, think carefully about whether you really want or need to purchase a place. Obviously those certain they want to permanently relocate will want to buy but others thinking about buying a holiday/second home should think carefully about renting.

Rental rates on property in Gozo are extremely reasonable and the Gozitans make renting additionally easy by providing appliances, linen and basic food stuffs as standard. It's easy to pick up a rental property on both a short term (anything up to six months) and longer term leases, and many people rent for six months or more before making the decision to buy a property themselves. More extensive properties rented on a longer lease are likely to include a maid, handyman and gardener to look after the property. Whatever the rental term is, you will be required to set down a deposit proportional to the overall cost of the rent. This will be up to 1 months rent on property of longer leases, set against any breakages or damage to the property. As with renting in the UK, the deposit will be returned at the end of the contract or offset against any breakages or unpaid bills left by the occupant. All bills are included in the price of a short term lease but will be borne by the occupant in anything longer than that.
