Leases are usually either in HUF or in Euros. Most leases in Szeged tend to be for at least one year. The contracts are for an indefinite period on a year to year basis. Our leases require that the tenant deposits a security deposit of at least 1-2 months of the rental value and if the lease is resigned that the tenant return the property in the condition it was in when they first took it.
Question about buying
Here are some of the things that make Hungary a fabulous place to live:
- Value For Money
Hungary is probably over 60% cheaper than the UK and Ireland. House prices are a fraction of UK and Irish prices. Properties on offer in Hungary are just no longer available in the UK & Ireland. Similar properties throughout the rest of Europe are typically more than 3 x Hungarian prices
- Higher Interest on bank Savings
Savings in Hungarian banks, are almost double that of the UK & Ireland. Also, as with the rest of the EU, you are insured through Europe up to £85,000 for a single account holder, £170,000 on a joint account. You are entitled to a Hungarian bank account as a property owner.
Hungary is around 8 degrees hotter than the UK & Ireland in summer, with around 50% less rainfall. Its still 8 degrees cooler than Spain, so if you would like to see a bit more of the sun, but find Mediterranean heat oppressive, then Hungary might be for you. See our dedicated climate page for more information on summer, spring, winter and autumn climate statistics.
All the property we sell has the absolute title in your name and an existing, established property. There is consequently no buying off -plan and no leaseholds in blocks of flats that have dubious title over the land. The land and property are yours and its freehold.
