The first and foremost thing that you should be doing if you want to rent a house in Malta is to do some research work. You do not want to have a house about which you are absolutely clueless your rented house might not be able to meet your requirements. Therefore it is very necessary for one to Note down their requirements and conducted research accordingly. Renting a house is almost like buying a car. You do not want to spend your money on something you do not know because that represents your status and give an impression about you.

Choose the area 

Now that you have been able to conduct the research it is time for you to find out that exact place where you want to buy the house. Remember that the research should be inclusive of all the areas around your workplace or school or college. Always try to rent a house that is near to your workplace so that you should not have to spend much on traveling. But it is also important to make sure that your house is able to meet your requirements. Therefore it is necessary to have the research done first and then to select the area.


Now, that you have got a full idea about the house that you want to rent and the area where you want to stay. It’s time to get hold of a broker. A broker can be found online and offline as well. Try to get a broker according to your budget because the broker is going to ask for extra money as he is the one who is going to do the job for you. If you do not want to get hold of any broker, it is important for you to be very active and make some calls.


After the house has been selected it’s time to visit and see the property physically. For this, you need to talk with the landowners so that a date and time can be fixed for your visit to the property. Once the date has been fixed it, you can visit the property and ask your landowner for a tour. When you see your property in front of you it is totally different from that what you have seen on your internet. Therefore, it is necessary to have a tour of the property before making the payment. 


Negotiation is the other step that should be taken. When one is about to rent a house, it is very important to negotiate with the landowner. You have done your research and you know the exact amount that is the market rate and you would like to pay exactly that or try to bring it down a bit. When your landlord is asking for too much money from you, you are free to negotiate. If the amount that your landlord is asking for does not meet your budget, you should try to negotiate and make them understand.


After the process of negotiation is done its time to make the payment. When you are doing the payment you need to know how your landlord wants you to make the payment. There are many who prefer half payment in cash and half by bank transfer on the other hand there are landowners who like the whole money to be paid in cash. You need to understand the payment method referred by your landowner and pay accordingly. But if you are not in a state of making full payment in cash you can talk to them so that they allow you to make Fang transfers.
