The letting and hiring of property in Malta has been a contentious area of legal practice for a very long time. The rent laws are extremely complicated and deciding which law applies to a one particular rental agreement depends on a host of factors – whether it’s an urban or rural tenement, if it’s residential or commercial, the year in which the lease agreement was drawn up – if it ever was, that is. Apart from all of this rent laws are continually being revised as a consequence of some judgements delivered by the European Court of Human Rights where, as a result of the prevailing laws, the State of Malta was found to have breached the rights of property owners. So whether you’re a property owner seeking to lease out your property in the current lucrative market or you’re a prospective tenant wanting to rent decent premises to set up your business or family home at a fair price, you’re going to want to put your signature on the dotted line only if you’re secure in the knowledge that your rights and obligations will be respected.
