Renting an apartment

Before you start searching for a flat and browsing sites, please read this useful guidance. Please let us know if you need any assistance, we are here to help you.

Rent fees

You can always see in ads that the apartment costs: … HUF rent fee + overheads or utilities. It means that in addition to the rent fee, you also need to pay the utilities every month. Before starting your search, make a realistic estimate of what you are prepared to pay.
The rent fees of the apartments are determined mostly by their location.
If it is closer to the university or one of the tram lines, the rent fee is generally more expensive. The apartments closest to the university and the ones in the newest buildings are generally the most expensive.

The rental prices are starting from:
  • below 90 000 HUF for a room (extremely rare!)
  • 90 000+ HUF for a studio apartment
  • 100 000+ HUF for an apartment sized around 40 m2  
  • 140 000+ HUF for a two-bedroom apartment

As you can see from the table below, most of the apartments are available in the 120 000 - 150 000 HUF range (monthly). 
Please be prepared that if your budget is below 90 000 HUF monthly, you need to find a flatmate to share costs. If you need a flatmate, please join THIS Facebook group.


Utility fees

The overheads or utilities cover community fee, water consumption, electricity usage and heating. You can always ask the owner what utility costs you can expect monthly.


Important information

Start searching for an apartment before your arrival, DO NOT leave it to the last minute. It is really difficult to find a place that suits your needs in just a few days.
When you find the appropriate flat you need to sign a lease contract with the owner, usually for a definite time, the minimum is one year. (In rare cases it is possible for a shorter period but it is always up to the owner.)

Before moving in, you also need pay a security deposit plus the rent for the first month. The amount of the security deposit is usually 2 months' rent fee. The goal of the security deposit is to cover any damages that might be caused during the lease. If there are no damages you will get back the full amount at the end of the lease contract. The conditions are included in your lease contract.

In general, flats are furnished and fully equipped. In case there are some items that you need, you can always discuss with the owner if it is possible to get them.

Be prepared that you need to buy your own bedclothes.

Bills are usually paid monthly by the owner. When they collect the rent, they show you the bills and you pay them with the rent, in general until the 10th of every month. This, of course, depends on your agreement with the owner.

Please make sure that you read the contract carefully before you sign it, everything that you and the owner agreed on need to be included in your contract. Do not be afraid to ask if something is not clear. Whenever you notice an issue at the apartment (something needs to be fixed, something was damaged by accident, etc.), always notify the owner as soon as possible.
