Frequently asked questions

We offer our Portugal rental search anywhere in mainland Portugal and Madeira. We work through a network of local real estate contacts to find opportunities anywhere in the country. At this time we are not able to provide our rental search service in the Azores.

In most cases landlords will want to see your passport, proof of income, and proof of a Portuguese NIF (tax identification number). Some landlords may ask for additional documentation, such as your last tax return, proof of a guarantor, or more.

That’s ok! We often work with clients to help them decide where to live in Portugal. We will discuss your needs and desired lifestyle in our kickoff call, suggest several towns or neighborhoods that you might like, and share descriptions and videos of each town/neighborhood so you can make an informed decision.

We recommend booking 2-3 months before you would like to sign a lease. This will give us adequate time to discuss location, align on your wants and needs, and review listings before starting our walkthroughs.

 

The Portuguese rental market is competitive, and listings come and go quickly. We want to search for several weeks to increase the chances a listing will pop up that you love.

We can absolutely conduct a rental search remotely. We offer comprehensive video walkthroughs of properties throughout Portugal. We always provide video of the interior of a rental, the exterior and access points of the rental, and the neighborhood. We will also send you notes on the location and proximity to the nearest amenities of interest (e.g. grocery store, school, park, beach).

Disclaimer: StartAbroad will provide recommendations and act on a client’s behalf based on the client’s specifications, however StartAbroad is not responsible, nor will StartAbroad provide refunds, if a client has issues with a rental after a lease is signed.
