Security deposit

  • When you are sure about the property you want to rent and you have reached an agreement on terms (date of entry, price and deposit, amongst others), you will then have to reserve it by paying a security deposit.
  • The amount will be equal to one month’s rent, which, if the deal is successfully closed, will be deducted from the deposit required by the property owner or the agency fees.
  • It is also possible to make a pre-reservation, whereby the property will be withdrawn from the market and secured for you.

Signing the contract

  • Documentation:

    National identity document (DNI) / Foreigners' identity document (NIE) / Passport.

  • Deposit:

    Depending on whatever is agreed, a specific amount must be paid to the owner serving as a guarantee that, upon termination of the rental contact, the property will be in the same condition as it was received in.

    If this is the case, the full amount will be returned upon termination of the rental contract; however, if there is any damage or defect, the cost will be deducted from this.

  • Contract:

    SANT JUST REAL ESTATE typically works with two kinds of contract:

    1. Short-term contracts of between three and eleven months.
    2. Long-term contracts as set out in the Ley de Arrendamientos Urbanos - LAU (Spanish Tenancy Act) at all times.
  • References:

    In order to ascertain whether tenants are able to meet the stipulated costs, SANT JUST REAL ESTATE will normally request references that determine their financial position depending on the type of client.

    For example, employment contract, payslips, tax return, etc.

  • Bank Guarantee:

    Occasionally the owner will request a bank guarantee ensuring that the liabilities of the tenant will be met by the bank in the event of the non-payment of rent.
