Housing Guide



Housing can differ from country to country and can even be different from city to city. If you are relocating under a company contract, always check if the company is providing housing with your expat package and if the type of housing is ideal for your situation e.g. if you are taking your family, a house or a spacious apartment is more suitable than a flat. If the housing provided is not suitable for you, it is best to talk to your HR to work out the housing terms, if they cannot offer a more suitable accommodation; some companies give their expats housing subsidies or allowances with their pay so expats can find a more suitable housing option. In any case, check your housing options with your HR and settle everything before your move.

It can be hard to choose your type of accommodation if you are simply unfamiliar with the types of housing available in your new city of residence , be it serviced apartment for short term or condominiums and houses for longer term. It can also be troublesome if you are not familiar with the renting or buying practices in the country, this is where real estate agents usually come in. Most expats prefer to just hire a real estate or letting agency handle the work for them, but this could also lead to being manipulated by real estate agents and ending up in a place that’s not really very ideal for you.

No matter how you choose to deal with housing and accommodation in your new country of residence, it’s best to have information before you get started. With that in mind, we’ve compiled important information for you to know before you move overseas.
