In Romania, the access to a home is not connected with the existence of a property right over a building. You can own an apartment or a house on the basis of a rental agreement or by entering into a sale-purchase agreement. The quality of living depends on access to utilities, between urban and rural areas, where in some cases, there are significant differences. During your stay in Romania, you will most likely live in a block apartment, which is why it is important to have a good relationship with your neighbors, to keep clean and quiet in the surrounding area.
Since there is a higher demand on the market than the available offer, we advise you to search for a living space in advance.
One of the most used solutions to resolving the housing problem is renting. The prices vary depending on the city and location (e.g., the lowest rents are usually on the outskirts of the city). It is more advantageous to share with someone a multi-room apartment than to live alone in a studio.
The rental price does not include utilities such as maintenance, gas, water, light, telephone etc, but there is an obligation to pay them.
