Accommodation in Morocco


You are looking for accommodation in Morocco? Here is some information to help you in your job search.

To find accommodation in Morocco, you can check with the different real estate agencies operating in most major cities, either in Fez, Casablanca, Agadir, Marrakech, Tangier and Rabat. Word-of-mouth is also a good way to find accommodation more rapidly. You can also see the classifieds section in local newspapers, and of course, check the Internet.

There are several types of accommodation in Morocco: villas, riads and apartments.

Regarding the leases, they are very similar to those used in many European countries. The lease generally lasts for three years and is automatically renewable. Rent is payable monthly, in advance, and a deposit of one month is usually required in case you would cause any damage to the accommodation. If you go through a real estate agency, charges equal to one month's rent will apply.

The lease documents should also state the lease term, the date of payment of rent and shall specify what the rent includes (charges, local taxes, etc.). To learn more about Moroccan lease contract, see the website of Selektimmo.

The rental prices can vary according to the cities and types of accommodation.
