No charge for the services
Our services – consultancy, registration, password renewal, access to the offers – are completely free of costs.
Sportello Casa offers you a free lease consultancy service, especially on the types of tenancy agreements, aimed both at students and offerers. You can also entrust our staff of all the bureaucratic procedures, starting with the drafting of the contract up to its registration on behalf of the landlord.
If you stay less than 5 months, we can give you information and contacts of possible alternatives, such as bed and breakfasts or other temporary accommodations.
How much does it take to conclude the agreement?
It depends on different variables.
The more the accommodation meets the student's requirements, the faster the negotiation will be, and our services as well.
Sportello Casa doesn't manage any accommodation; we only act as an intermediary between students and landlords by promoting the landlords' offers and publishing them on the website, or putting them on the noticeboards in our offices.
Sportello Casa's Staff helps the international students find and view the accommodations, explains them how the tenancy agreement works, and help them orient themselves in the new city.
Regular service charges are generally always at the tenant's expense, and are divided by the number of months of the tenancy, so that is clear for the tenant to understand how much he/her owes per month.
Utility bills are always at the tenant's expense, and their amount depends on the usage.
Guarantees to students and landlords
Sportello Casa does not have any authority to guarantee against arrears of the tenants. We only guarantee that the students are regularly enrolled at the university, and that we control the information the offerers give us, included the drafting and registration of a standard tenancy agreement.
