You are surfing around on the web, looking for a rental in Costa Rica , but you have no idea what the rules are, how the system works and how to avoid getting in trouble.

What would be the legal term of the lease agreement? What is the difference between a short-term rental and a long-term rental? Do you have to put down a security deposit? What happens if you leave before the lease term is completed? In Costa Rica, property for rent is governed by law No.

A snowbird is someone who moves from the higher latitudes and colder climates of the United States and Canada and migrates southward in winter to warmer locales. For that reason, many will rent anywhere between one month and six months, which is seen as a short-term rental; any stay of less than a year is a short-term rental.

Law indicates in article 70 that the rental term of a lease agreement cannot be less than three years, which is what we call a long-term rental. Nonetheless, it is common practice to stipulate a different term in the agreement. It is customary that you will not get your security deposit returned if you leave before the first year is up, which should be clearly written in the lease agreement.

Real estate commissions will always be covered by the landlord if you use an agent for your rental. The legal language of a lease agreement in Costa Rica is of course Spanish, but to fully understand what you are signing, you can ask your real estate agent to supply a copy in English or find an attorney to check the agreement for you.

Do NOT sign any agreement that you do not understand. If you have any pets, you might have to make a second security deposit. This deposit is meant to cover any damages caused by the tenant as well as the completion of the term of the agreement. Landlords will usually return the security deposit 30 days after the tenant has left, so utility bills and inventory can be checked.

If you walk before the lease term is completed, usually you only lose your security deposit, unless your lease agreement states anything different. Unfortunately, there are always unscrupulous landlords who refuse to refund the security deposit. In that case, I recommend you find a bilingual attorney who might be able to help you further, though you might be facing extensive litigation.

Share this article Tenant laws in Costa Rica are pro-tenant in that even if a tenant refuses to pay rent they can continue to live in the property until the landlord exhausts all of his or her legal hurdles to evict them, a process than can take years in the worst case scenario. But that may soon change with the passage in first debate of a reform to the Landlord-Tenant law that expedites the process of eviction, allowing the Landlord to bring a non-paying tenant to court in as little as two months. The process of evicting a tenant for not paying his rent seems simple enough: the landlord files an action under the Summary Process provided for by the Code of Civil Procedure Codigo Procesal Civil , the tenant is served and has five days to respond. After the evidential period, the court will issue a final judgement and writ of possession and the police is called in to evict the tenant. As with all litigation processes in Costa Rica the time frame can vary significantly depending on the court and the location, a process than can take as little as several months to a year or more, depending on the circumstances.

Tenancy law is pro-tenant

During the early twentieth century, Costa Rica leasing law heavily favored tenants over landlords. The laws still provide favor to tenant rights; however, modern legislation has reduced the gap between tenant and landlord rights. Original Costa Rica Leasing Legislation Ley 6: Ley de Subsistencias e Inquilinato was the first law which governed leasing in Costa Rica and was designed to protect tenant rights during a time of global economic uncertainty with war waging throughout the world. The Constitutional Court based its decision on several issues including the form of passage by the National Assembly and language in several articles of the law.
