Long Term Cyprus December 19, 2008 at 8:59 pm

Our experience of renting property and especially here in Cyprus, the owners of cyprus rental property, are geared for renting on a long term basis for cyprus property. Cyprus long term rental property is attractive due to the locations near the cyprs coastal areas of Larnaca And Protaras. renting cyprus property will require a tenancy agreement filled in, with copies of passports and references taken for owners security.

Thanks very much for posting all of this information, it certainly helps a lot after a break up with a partner. 🙂

Information of rental property in this blog is very useful and workable.

Its awkward to produce these documents if you’ve just broken up and the bills were in your partners name and she cut up your drivers licence, ouch

That doesn’t sound good 🙁 How did you get around that problem?

Lots of patience and meeting an understanding landlord, plus sleeping on friend’s sofas for a few weeks :o)

St Nicolas, that’s a valid point you make, I’m in the same boat but I had other forms of ID that I could show however I’m still trying to find a place in Perth, Western Australia.

I’ve decided to move into a mates house until I find a place because even half decent places are being snapped up within hours or a day or two after a viewing by people here, it’s a cut throat time to find a rental in Perth at the moment.

I’ve felt like starting my own blog on the places I’ve inspected and how difficult it is when you work full time too.

I hear you, Richard, I had to find a rental in Melbourne and it was two toughest months of my life. Working full time and trying to look for a house pretty much took all I’ve got. On top of everything else they won’t let you apply unless you’ve inspected the place first and those inspections are in the middle of working days, which makes it so much harder because I had to get out of work every time.
