Rent a house to foreigners? Only one agency out of five said yes
the ROME - "Ready? Hello, my name is for the apartment for rent. I'm interested in. Okay as you ask. I am ready to pay the two months advance deposit and the percentage that is the responsibility of the agency. I forgot: they are in good standing with the residence permit". "Stay permit? I'm sorry, we do not rent to foreigners". Looking for a house is never an easy undertaking, especially for immigrants. The news is full of stories of landlords who refuse tenants are foreigners.

Only 20% of real estate agencies, contact has put at the disposal of the apartments.

looking for a home. Baobab Experience is an association that, since 2015, Rome has witnessed over 85mila migrants passed from the fields of informal, prepared with the means donated, getting medical care, food and accommodation for the night. Not only. By November, Baobab supports people with a regular employment contract and residence permit in finding a home for rent. As reported by "Welcome to anywhere" (the Observatory on the widespread welcome of migrants and refugees, launched from the portal, Common-info), some of the foreign citizens "at the time of the interview with the activists they were looking for a house for months without success and suspect that it was not a matter of bad luck but of injustice was soon confirmed. With the coordination of Baobab4Jobs we have activated Baobab4Housing: not only research, coaching and support in all the phases of renting a property, but also monitoring on the motivations of denial. Well, it is revealed that a subsystem is openly racist, a trench against the integration, tolerated at most levels".

we do Not rent to immigrants. The answers are various: “Rent to foreigners, but only if european”, “rent to foreigners, but only romanians and albanians”, “here the foreigners do not want them to nobody”, “here there have been problems with foreigners in the Nineties, and since then the houses did he rent more”. "In the line of waste not all foreigners are the same – complaint Baobab – there are foreigners-strangers and foreigners a little less foreign. Foreigners in europe, for example, are foreigners privileged, tolerated by the landlords. Foreigners-foreigners who want to integrate, that have a job and who wants to pay taxes, house, light, water and gas, who wants to pay the two months deposit and the fee to the estate agent, but no, they have this right is denied. In two months of coaching and monitoring the 30 percent of the agencies contacted by phone or visited directly, he openly declared that the owners of the properties at their disposal and do not wish to rent to foreigners; 50 percent stated not to have any rented property; the remaining 20 per cent has proved, however, available to some of the proposals of real estate".
