Why choose Expat Rental Scout

The step-by-step plan


1. Special search tool

The housing market is fast moving and a lot of properties are gone when you contact the rental agent. We found that very annoying so we developed a special tool to find all the properties as soon as they are on the market. Our dedicated team checking it all the time so you will be posted every day with new properties to make sure you don't miss out on anything.


2. Assist on viewings

When we show you a property that you like just let us know. We take care to get in contact with agents and landlords, what saves you time. We will reach out to them to schedule in viewings and will assist you on that, just to make sure we can advise you the best way possible.


3. Negotiate best deal

When we have found your ideal property that you want to rent. Then we will set up an offer and discuss with you how we can get the best deal. When we get a response we will assist on the process of negotiating and check things like a good price, start date, furniture pieces or other things.


4. Review all legal documents

This is one of the most important moments in the process. We will review all documents together with you, whether it's a lease contract, Terms & Conditions, House rules or an invoice. We will make sure all the information in it is correct, and explain everything so that you understand. We know this is necessary to fully agree so you can sign it.


5. Assist on utilities & register

If you got the keys of your new home the move starts and everything is almost finished. In that case we're also there for you and we'll make sure you're set up with the necessary utilities. This includes internet, gas, electricity, water, heating and in some cases house content insurance.


6. Years of experience

The past few years we helped a lot of expats to get from A to B without a headache. We have a team of dedicated people with years of experience and even some ex-expats from Spain and England. So we have all the knowledge to assist you in the search of getting your next home.
