The jury of the 28th edition of the Mipim Awards made its verdict on Thursday evening. We know the eleven real estate projects that have been rewarded on the occasion of the Mipim (International Real Estate Market), which is now indispensable for all real estate professionals. Not to mention the special prize of the jury, which was awarded for a project that is also considered the best hotel and tourist complex. This is the Catholic Social Institute Abbey Michaelsberg in Siegburg, Germany. Congratulations to Italy, who has won three prizes. Like last year, France has to settle for a single price. Note that eight of the eleven trophies have been awarded to a European country.

LUX REAL ESTATE OVERVALUED BY 6.85%

The rampant rise of Luxembourg property prices is partly down to an overvaluation, an economist at the BCL, Luxembourg’s central bank, has said.

In a report published on 13.02.2018, Sara Ferreira Filipe found that high residential real estate prices have led to an expansion of mortage credit, “which in turn triggers a further price increase”.

This, coupled with a limited supply and high demand from positive migration, “only partly explains the price dynamics of the residential real estate market in Luxembourg,” she wrote.

The tipping point was a “moderate but continued overvaluation of property prices”. Ferreira Filipe estimated the overvaluation at on average 6.85% since the start of 2012, but says the trend decreased over the last few quarters.

The economist further says that a correction of this overvaluation has been slower in Luxembourg than in other countries “at an average rate of 2.2% of the overvaluation each quarter.”

This, she states, means it will take 31.5 quarters (7.8 years) to reset half of the deviation from the fundamental value.

“In comparison correcting the deviation of mortgage credit from its own fundamentals takes only about a quarter,” the economist wrote, adding: “In sum, the results suggest that an imbalance in the mortgage market is corrected faster than in the real estate market.”

Residential real estate prices rose by 40% in Luxembourg from 2006 to 2016. Latest figures on house prices in Luxemborg

 

recorded a 4.9% increase from the third trimester of 2016 to the third trimester of 2017. A joint report from Statec and Liser found that the average price of a family house reached €649,425, an existing flat €5,002/sqm (+4.7%) and a new flat €6,316/sqm (+6.1%).

20 most expensive places for expats to rent a home in Europe, 2018 and 2017

Luxembourg City is the 11th most expensive location for rent accommodation in Europe, an annual expat survey has found. 

 

That is down from 9th place last year, according to ECA International, an employee compensation consultancy. The firm said it looked at the cost of renting “an unfurnished, mid-market, three-bedroom apartment in prime areas” of several cities across the globe.

ECA stated that:

“The research compares rental costs in accommodation in areas typically inhabited by expatriate staff in over 240 locations worldwide.”

To carry out its research:

“ECA uses a global network of estate agents, relocation agents and extensive in-house research into worldwide property markets to establish and verify the housing data in the reports.”

In this year’s study, London was by far the most expensive location in Europe, followed by Moscow. A pair of Swiss cities also featured in the top 10.

In addition, ECA reported that:

“One of the highest rent increases in Europe for expats is in Dublin, which enters the top 10 most expensive cities to rent for the first time.”

Eastern European cities such as Prague and Warsaw also saw “sharp increases in rental prices” this year.

East-Meets-West Meets Modern: The New Nobu Hotel Shoreditch in London

The Nobu Hotel Shoreditch in London is one of the new hotels that was recently added to the Design Hotels portfolio. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because this property is an extension of the Nobu Hospitality Group founded by world-acclaimed chef Nobuyaki Matsuhisa, award-winning actor Robert De Niro, and Hollywood film producer Meir Teper. Inspired by East Asian design and minimalist aesthetics, the hotel lures guests in with its beautiful interiors, Japanese-inspired amenities and immaculately plated Japanese-Peruvian cuisine.

The architecture was designed by Ron Arad Associates and Ben Adams Architects and features a facade made of glass, concrete, steel, timber and bronze which contrasts against Shoreditch’s traditional brick red buildings. Cantilevered steel beams point east as a homage to the country that gave this hotel its inspirations.

Studio Mica and Studio PCH were both inspired to incorporate Japanese culture, art and philosophy into the interiors but with a contemporary eye. A deconstructed pattern based on an ink painting technique called sumi-eappears on the walls throughout the hotel. Textures like clay pottery, wood shoji screens, traditional patchwork, and charcoal stone help to ground the look while modern fixtures/furniture and brass accents give the hotel a modern feel. Custom-made yukata robes and Japanese tea sets take the place of traditional hotel amenities in the guest rooms.

A back-lit staircase leads guests to the hotel’s restaurant and bar, which features a chef’s table, sushi counter and outdoor courtyard, all of which serves Chef Nobu’s signature Japanese-Peruvian dishes and hand-crafted signature cocktails.

Coming January 2018, guests will able to relax in the hotel’s new spa and wellness center which will offer luxury treatments, steam room facilities and treatment rooms for indulgent Shiatsu massages.

What: Nobu Hotel Shoreditch
Where: 10-50 Willow St, London EC2A 4BH, UK
How much? Rooms start at approximately $198 per night.
Highlights: This is the first hotel in London for the Nobu Hospitality Group which has created a name for itself that’s synonymous with luxury hospitality and fine dining. This Shoreditch location is no exception.
Design draw: The hotel has an East-meets-West aesthetic that was created with a contemporary eye.

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.

Guichet.lu has information on terminating a lease here. For details of what to do in a conflict, for financial aid and other rental matters click here.How to find a property
