How do I find a place to live in Kuwait City?

Answer this Question

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered...

"To find a place to live in Kuwait City, you can start by researching the different neighborhoods and areas within the city to determine which one best suits your needs and preferences. Some popular areas for expats include Salmiya, Salwa, and Fintas. Next, you can browse online property listings on websites such as 99acres.com, propertyfinder.kw, and mourjan.com. These websites allow you to filter your search based on your preferences, such as the type of property, number of bedrooms, and budget. Another option is to contact local real estate agents who can help you find a suitable property. They have extensive knowledge of the local market and can provide valuable advice on the best areas to live in and the types of properties available. You can find real estate agents through online directories or by asking for recommendations from friends or colleagues who have already settled in Kuwait City. Once you have shortlisted a few properties, arrange for viewings with the landlord or real estate agent. During the viewing, make sure to inspect the property thoroughly and ask any questions you may have about the property, such as maintenance fees, utilities, and any additional costs. After you have found a suitable property, negotiate the terms of the lease with the landlord or real estate agent. Make sure to read the lease agreement carefully and ensure that all the agreed-upon terms are included in the contract. Finally, once the lease agreement is signed, you will need to register the lease with the Kuwaiti Ministry of Justice. This is a legal requirement and ensures that your rights as a tenant are protected under Kuwaiti law," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Kuwait City, Kuwait.

"My company and most companies provide housing here. There are some bad places to live, as the locals, they LOVE Americans and are happy to help," commented one expat who made the move to Kuwait City, Kuwait.
