  • For living purpose         
Generally, the process of finding a home in Vietnam as relatively simple. It is not advisable to commit to a contract without having seen the property beforehand. For this reason, many expats check themselves into a guesthouse when they first arrive in Vietnam and subsequently begin their search for a home. The types of property in Vietnam vary depending on one’s location. In major cities such as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, expats will find a lot of luxury accommodation options available which are on par with property standards in their home countries. Those on a tight budget should also be able to find basic accommodation options at very affordable rates in most places. Most expats find accommodation in Vietnam via word of mouth, via websites, through their employers and by using the services of estate agents. Naturally, the location of a property, the number of rooms and the type of property will impact the rental price. When viewing apartments, especially in Ho Chi Minh City, it is wise to take a walk around the immediate area surrounding the complex to check if there is any sign of new buildings going up. Building work is common in rapidly growing Vietnamese cities and can cause a great deal of annoyance, particularly on weekend mornings when residents may wish to lie in. To rent a property in Vietnam expats will usually be expected to pay at least one or two months’ rent upfront as a security deposit. While some landlords have been known to ask for payment of the full rental period beforehand, this is not the norm. In fact, it can be rather risky and is not advisable. Foreigners will also be asked to provide a copy of their passport, work visa and the address of their employer. By law, landlords in Vietnam have to report this information to the government when they rent out a property to an expat.
