Apartments for Rent

Apartments for Rent

The rental industry in Malta is a fast-paced environment, and properties are constantly being rented and leased. Our agents can negotiate the best deals for you no matter if you are planning on relocating to Malta and renting a flat for over 6 months, or you are a traveller and seeking a holiday apartment for a week or so.

When visiting Malta for a holiday, we aim to make your stay pleasant and understand that the sun and sea are some of the best reasons to be staying on our Mediterranean islands, because of this reason our agents will be more than happy to show you around some of the most prominent seaside towns in Malta and Gozo so that you are able to really enjoy the culture our locals exude. Some of these towns include Sliema, St. Julians, Ta' Xbiex and Bugibba.

If you are travelling on a budget, then towns that are found closer to the countryside and the centre of Malta would most likely be more suitable for you for their lower cost, yet still, wonderful views and close to amenities. Malta is a small island and every town is only a bus ride away. 

It is becoming more common for individuals in their twenties to begin moving out of their parents' homes earlier than in previous years, and seek out apartments for rent in Malta. If you are in this important stage in your life, we understand that renting an apartment in Malta may be a big step for you, and our friendly and helpful agents will ensure that they are able to find the perfect home for you. This also goes for families that are looking for a small home to live in when in between selling their previous home and buying a new home.

Short and Long Lets

Depending on your requirements, some properties, in this case Apartments, will be for short let, or for long let. The difference between the two is that a short let is when a person rents a property for less than 6 months, while a long let is from 6 months onward, up to even 3 or 5 years, with the most common period being 1 year. This is when the person residing in the Apartment can re-new the lease, or else leave the current property and move on to another.

How much should you spend on rent?

When seeking a property for rent in Malta, in this case Apartments, there are a lot of options and factors to consider, one of the biggest being the budget. Once a budget has been decided on, it makes finding a suitable property much simpler, as anything out of the budget would have been removed from your searches, narrowing down your options significantly.

Different Apartments come at different prices, and you will need to think about what necessities you need in your new home, for example how many rooms you may need and what locations interest you. Studios typically cost less than one-bedroom Apartments and significantly less than a 3 bedroom Apartment in a popular town by the sea, such as Sliema. If you are considering sharing the rent of the property with a roommate, then that also gives you the option of increasing your budget, as both persons would be contributing equally.

Depending on how much you earn and the lifestyle you live, a variety of Apartments will be suitable. If you are the type of individual to spend more money on travelling, shopping and going out then a small studio in a central area may be the right choice for you, however if you tend to stay home, save money for a rainy day and would rather live comfortably in luxury surroundings instead, then perhaps a penthouse with sea views would be a great option, whether you prepare to rent the property with a significant other or not. For family-oriented couples a two or three-bedroom Apartment for rent in a quiet residential area could be a great option in towns such as San Gwann, Naxxar, Mosta, Madliena, Wardija, Dingli, Bahar Ic-Caghaq and Pembroke. These areas combine close amenities and a quieter alternative to buzzing towns.

Another fact that comes into play when renting an Apartment, is whether you have any pets or not. Small pets will adjust nicely to a cozy one bedroom Apartment, however larger canines for example, may not have enough space and feel limited in a small area. It is also important to make sure that the block of Apartments you are considering moving into is pet-friendly, so as not to disturb any of the other tenants in the building, as this may cause unnecessary trouble with them as well as the landlord and agent.
