RENTING AN APARTMENT/HOME
The Slovak Civil Code regulates the relationship between landlord and tenant. This code covers many things that foreigners may expect to see in the lease contract.
The landlords, meaning all the owners of the property you are renting, must sign the agreement. A valid property title (výpis z katastra nehnuteľností or list vlastníctva) which describes the particulars of the property and identifies the owner(s), should be attached to the contract.
You do not have to obtain a Slovak Residency Permit before signing a lease contract. In fact, the opposite is true. The contract is one of the requirements for registration as a Slovak resident.
The following are examples of the most common clauses found in a lease:
PURCHASING PROPERTY IN SLOVAKIA
Under Sect. 19-A of Slovak Law 312/2004, foreigners can purchase property in the Slovak Republic. There are, however, some exceptions: foreigners may not own agricultural land, forests and other property of special interest to the Slovak state, as specified by law.
There are a large number of real estate agencies that can be contacted for information or service.
