Generally, families who rent live in the single-family home of some else who temporarily has no need for the home. They may also live in a basement apartment or in some other portion of the house set aside for a renter. On the whole, the rental market is not as well organized as in neighbouring countries and there is no organized information about the market. Rental prices are quite arbitrary, and it can be rather expensive to rent a place to live. Moreover, in many cases the rental contract does not generally favour the renter and the notice period to vacate can be very short. Announcements for rental property appear periodically in the newspapers.
