Finding a rental property in Luxembourg

 

How to find a property

Supply of housing in Luxembourg is low and demand high. Add to this the astronomical price of land, and you create an expensive landlord’s market.

Deciding on an area

Work and school locations are the two biggest influencers in deciding where you should rent. Whilst public transport is good in Luxembourg, journey times can quadruple during rush hour making even short journeys time-consuming. Check out schools locations and bus/train timetable routes. Generally speaking city centre locations tend to favour apartments whilst the suburbs have far more houses with gardens.

Budget will be a big factor in your location. The average monthly rental cost for an apartment in Luxembourg is 1,378 Euros and for a house 2,357 Euros.

Estate agents

Because it’s a renter’s market, you’ll find you’re chasing estate agents. If you’re coming from overseas for a pre-visit, you can line up house viewings in one day. Expect estate agents to find properties at the top end of your budget.

Remember that notice periods can be 2-3 months, so start your property search in plenty of time. Many estate agencies specialise in specific localities so if you know where you want to live, register with them (you can use the site below which aggregate other agency adverts).

Beyond estate agencies, private rentals are posted on http://yous.lu/en/ which is also an aggregator site. Don’t forget to ask around at work, someone might be moving or renting their property.

It is not impossible to rent furnished apartments but expect most places to be unfurnished, which also means no light fittings. Estate agencies will expect a month’s rent plus VAT in fees.

Utilities

Rental usually does not include gas (or oil), electricity, telephone, broadband, rubbish collection, and water rates, but some city apartments may include these in the rental price. Many properties will list energy ratings and you can ask the current tenants what the utilities cost. Expect to add a couple of hundred a month to your rental costs for these. You can find out about utility suppliers on the AngloInfo site or the Luxembourg government website.

Things to know before you sign

In addition to utilities you may have responsibility for other elements of the property. Contracts can include servicing the boiler, sweeping out chimneys and maintenance of the garden.

Contrat de bail à loyer (rental contract)

Contracts vary, but generally the standard is 3 years with a diplomatic clause. Be aware, that you literally have to leave the country to invoke this. It is getting easier to secure one-year contracts but specify this with the estate agent.

If your rental property includes some utilities, the landlord has the right to reconcile costs at the end of the year and it is not unheard of for people to receive quite hefty gas and electricity reconciliation bills.

Equally, repairs can sometimes take landlords an eon to conduct, so consider adding a clause that states the landlord must repair essentials such as heating, dishwasher or oven within a maximum time limit.

Guichet.lu has details on entering a rental agreement here.

Dépôt de garantie (deposit or bond)

A refundable deposit is usually required in cash or more commonly via a bank guarantee, which is paid into an account in the tenant’s name, but requires authorisation from both parties for money to be released.

A deposit cannot exceed 3 month’s rent and must be refunded minus cost of repairs or service charges within 6 months of the end of the lease – so expect to wait to get it back.

Etats des Lieux (Inventory)

Before or on the day of moving in, your landlord or the agent will go through a rental inventory with you, listing everything included in the property and the state of this. It might be extra stress, but be careful to go through this a room at a time, as you might find you are charged for damage that you didn’t make when you leave the property.

This is also a useful time to check you know how the oven, dishwasher heating, hot water etc work. Gardening equipment such as lawnmowers, and washing machines and curtains are usually not included in the rental.

You will both sign the Etats des Lieux and when you leave your rental property you will both need to sign this again to release deposit funds. For details on the rental inventory from guichet.lu click here.

Insurance

You will be contractually required to have household and fire insurance covering the building, and insurance to cover contents supplied by the landlord such as a fully equipped kitchen. Consider adding parquet floors to the insurance. You will obviously want to ensure your own contents too. The main insurers in Luxembourg are LaLux, and Foyer

Ongoing tenancy

If you have a problem with any of the equipment provided ie heating, dishwasher, oven, you should be able to call the estate agent or landlord directly to fix these.

Most contracts state that the property must be left in the condition you rented it. If your children have left sticky handprints all over the paintwork or scratched the parquet flooring, expect to be charged for these to be redecorated or repaired.

Giving notice

Notice on a rental property must be given usually 3 months before the end of the contract in writing and sent by registered post.

The landlord has the right to show prospective tenants your new property in the final three months. If you want to leave early and can find a tenant who is acceptable to the landlord, you might be able to circumvent the contract. The landlord also has the right to give notice on a property if s/he intends to sell it.

Près de 10 000 euros/m² pour un Appartement à Strassen

Près de 10 000 euros/m² pour un Appartement à Strassen

LUXEMBOURG – Mauvaise nouvelle pour les futurs propriétaires: au 2e trimestre 2017, les prix des appartements ont fortement grimpé par rapport à l’année dernière.

Selon les données publiées par l’Observatoire de l’habitat, les prix de vente des appartements qu’ils soient existants ou en construction ont beaucoup augmenté. Pour un appartement existant, comptez en moyenne 5 080 euros/m² soit 3,4% de plus qu’au 1e trimestre 2017 et 9,6% de plus par rapport au 2e trimestre 2016. Pour les appartements en construction, il faut débourser en moyenne 6 443 euros/m² soit 3,9% de plus qu’au début de l’année et 10% de plus que l’année dernière à la même période.

Sans surprise, la commune la plus chère reste Luxembourg-Ville pour les appartements déjà existants (6 928 euros/m²) en revanche, pour les appartements en construction, c’est Strassen qui détient la palme avec 8 018 euros/m² voire jusqu’à 9 550 euros/m² dans la fourchette haute. À l’inverse, il ne faut compter qu’entre 3 394 et 4 173 euros/m² à Wiltz pour un appartement.
