Buying a property in Cabo Roig is such a huge commitment that renting first on a long term let or long term rental to try before you buy is so obvious, yet not enough people do it. When buying in Spain you have to pay 10% of the purchase price to the government so that is a lot of money down the drain if you want to move later on.

It’s these little details that are crucial. Schools in Cabo Roig are another good example that are very hard to research thoroughly until you are actually here.
Now you are hopefully convinced, let’s talk about the details of long term lets and long term rentals in Cabo Roig.
Long term lets or long term rental contracts in Cabo Roig are often referred to as Vivienda contracts. These should be much cheaper than short term lets because they are typically for a period of a year. You won’t be able to move out within incurring a penalty. After the first year you will usually be able to out with only a months notice.
Long term rentals in Cabo Roig usually involve putting down a deposit of a month or two in the case of furnished properties.
Finding a long term let or long term rental in Cabo Roig is not easy because in many areas people can charge such massive prices for summer holiday rentals so they don’t want a long term rental tenant in during these periods.
The best places to find long term rentals or long lets in Cabo Roig is through the local estate agents. You won’t generally find them advertised much, so phone or go inside and ask. This is because estate agents make so much money through selling property instead.
LONG TERM WINTER LETS IN CABO ROIG
If you are looking to escape the cold winter weather and temperatures in northern Europe then finding and locating a long-term winter rental in Spain is a great idea as the weather in wintertime is often mild and sunny.
Also at this time of year many villas and apartments will be empty so you can find cheap bargain prices for winter lets in Cabo Roig.
PROBLEMS WITH LONG LETS
There is one major downside to a long term rental let in Cabo Roig. After the year the tenant has the right to renew for up to five years and the landlord can only increase the rent by the annual rate of inflation. So what’s the problem!
Well because the tenants have so many rights, after a year you will find many landlords will want you out and will get different tenants in. It means you have to move over and over again but the upside is you experience living in different types of houses in different areas of Cabo Roig.
In any case, after a year’s long term rental or long term let you probably have a better idea of where in Spain you would really like to live now – it may not even be in Cabo Roig – almost certainly it will be in a different area to the one you would have chosen before you moved to Cabo Roig.
