I may sign a contract for 12 months in Leuven - and considering numerous rental / lease-related aspects, it may well be that for quite some time I would consider e.g. AirBnB on a month-by-month basis for example...
The puzzling thing remains, no matter how many websites I read: registration with local commune (as EU citizen, so within 3 months of arrival) needs rental contract therefore some "permanent" address.
Conversely, registration with mutuelle seems to need the residence papers that one would obtain after some while based on above registration.
Have I just read too much and have gone silly, or this is a real conundrum?... in which case how does anybody not "permanent" for quite some time (if ever) at some address comply with needed registration? I even heard opinions that then one doesn't register, but this is scary also blocks healthcare-related registrations (unless I go for A1 in UK).
Thanks in advance for any thoughts,
