The minimum period for a long term rental is 6 months, anything shorter would be considered a short term rental or winter rental (depending on the time of year, as a winter rental is between October and April).
The normal for a long term rental contract is 1 year, although some owners do a renewable 11 months contract.
The difference between a year rental and an 11 month rental is, the year rental after the year is automatically renewed to a maximum of 5 years. If you do not wish to renew after the year, you must notify the owner two months before the end of the contract.
An 11 month contract, is renewed for a further 11 months at the end of the contract.
A contract is always renewed when the owners and the tenants are both happy and there are no outstanding debts nor damages to the property.
For a contract shorter than 6 months, please contact us, as there may be a small modification in the monthly rental price quoted.
