Tips and Recommendations:
Wheather you plan to share (500-10000 CZK/per person, per month) or go it alone (9000-30000 CZK/month), keep these tips as you search.
Getting a flat:
Best time for starting searching for the apartments from end of April till middle of July.
If you write emails in czech, there is more chances that people will reply. Ask someone who speak Czech visit with you flat appointments as agents and landlords pretty often don’t speaks English or don’t want to lend apartments to foreigners.
Be careful with documents: have contract, proof-read before signing it: your name, price (does amount of used electricity, gas, water influencing it), dates (especially important for non EU citizens). Sign contract with blue pen! If you would need to prove to police its real contract, you can make it at post office with your landlord.
The owner may be willing to furnish an unfurnished flat for higher rent.
Negotiating the price of rent is a must!
- 1+kk One room with a kitchen in the same living space (bathrooms are usually separate)
- 1+1 One room with separate kitchen
- 2+kk Bedroom and kitchen/lounge in the same area
- 2+1 Bedroom, living area, and separate kitchen
- 3+1 Two bedrooms, a living area and kitchen
First month of rent often includes:
Deposit - usually price of one month of rent (should be returned in the end of staying, if it wasn’t used)
Payment to agent (if you had one) - 20-100% of the price of one month rent
Rent: it can include service (gas, water, electricity + house service) in it or you would need to pay it separately - check it before signing contract.
If there is any problem with the flat (something breaks, problems with neighbors, services, etc) firstly tell it to landlord and only than try to fix it yourself. If you paid deposit its landlord responsibility to fix problems from deposit money.
