Accommodation in Argentina

Recommend

Differents housings options are available in Argentina. You can buy or rent an apartment, or simply opt for room-sharing.

In Argentina, housing solutions are manifold: whether you are in Argentina for a short or long term, all categories of accommodation are available.

Prices are reasonable, but may vary according to seasonal demand (beginning of the academic year, tourist season, etc..).

To start with, consider hostels, pensions or family home stay: these types of housing are very convenient upon arrival and will let you enough time to discover neighborhoods and choose the right accommodation that best suits your needs. 

Once you have selected a neighborhood, you can start searching for accommodation, whether in an apartment, a furnished room or flatshare. Some neighborhoods, however, have problems of violence and security. Check carefully the neighborhood prior to signing your rental lease!

As far as your accommodation search is concerned, browse the web, read ads in the free or traditional press, and visit real-estate agencies. For instance, read the classified ads in the real estate sections of El Clarin and La Nacion. Many websites dedicated to flatsharing are also at your disposal.

Rent

In Argentina, the most common practice for duration of a lease agreement is 2 years minimum and 10 years maximum. Short-term rental agreements tend to develop in order to better meet foreign customers' demand.

If you sign a two-years lease, a mandatory minimum occupation period of 6 months is required and you can not break your lease before that period. However, the landlord can not break the lease before term.

Generally, a deposit of one month's rent is required. Payment of one month's rent in advance may be required, but not more. Rents are payable on a monthly basis. If you rent accommodation through a real estate agency, a finder's fee equivalent to a fixed percentage of the total amount of rents covering the entire duration of the lease applies.

Expenses generally do not include water, gas and electricity, which are to be paid separately,but may include heating. Telephone and Internet are also to be paid separately by the tenant.
