Today Edward is proud to lead the largest letting branch on the island, with several members of his team earning European recognition for their outstanding work and exacting standards.
Malta’s rental market is going from strength to strength, having remained stable over the last decade and showing considerable growth over the years.
This is partially thanks to the fact that Malta largely bypassed the 2008 global recession, but also because of the increase in the number of companies relocating to Malta.
Plus, this already buoyant market is topped off with a healthy amount of tourist and expatriate rentals, as well as a smaller amount of local rentals by people who either do not wish to take on the commitment of purchasing a property in Malta, or are having their own property renovated. All this comes together to create a healthy market for property for rent in Malta or Gozo.
The strong state of the Maltese rental market is reflected in the fact that the RE/MAX Letting team has grown considerably to be able to satisfy demand. As a result, RE/MAX Letting associates are amongst the most knowledgeable and experienced letting agents in Malta.
The process of renting a property in Malta is fairly simple and straightforward. After your requirements have been communicated to one of our specialist letting associates, a number of properties will be selected specifically to suit your needs.
A Letting associate will then accompany you on your property viewings, assisting you with your decision, and refining the search to suit any changes in the initial plan.
Once a property has been chosen, RE/MAX Letting will negotiate a rental price with the landlord that’s fair to all parties. A letting contract outlining any specific terms agreed between the parties will then be drafted and signed.
Standard procedure is to collect one month’s deposit a month in advance, and another half-a-month’s rent plus 18% VAT as the agency fee.
It is worth noting that properties are rented at a slight premium when the total duration of the lease is less than six months. The agency fee in these cases is 10% of the total amount.
Once all has been signed and paid, the tenants are free to move in. However, our service does not end there. RE/MAX Letting offers a complete concierge service, including assistance with the installation of internet, telephone and television services, the taking out of insurance, sourcing housekeeping services, property maintenance, and more.
There is a wide selection of available properties for rent in Malta that will suit your budget and criteria. However, the pricing of these properties for rent in Malta or Gozo ultimately depends on the location that you are searching.
