Slovakia - Renting Property
It is advisable to employ a reputable real estate agent with experience in the foreign rental market. Generally the landlord will pay the agent's commission, but you should clarify this prior to going out and looking at property. The commission is usually equivalent to a month's rent.
The normal deposit is equivalent to one month's rent, and in addition, one to three month's rent may be requested in advance.
It is possible to rent a fully equipped house or apartment with washer/dryer, television, cable connection, refrigerator etc., but obviously the amount of the monthly payment will depend upon location, amenities, overall condition of the property, age of the structure and so on.
Utilities costs (gas, water, electricity, telephone) are generally not included in the lease.
