Inflation may cause higher prices
“Inflation was 13.7 percent in July, so for those whose lease agreement uses annual inflation as the basis for the rent increase, depending on the apartment, they can expect a HUF 10-20,000 (EUR 24.71 – 49.41) price increase if they stay in the given sublease. It is important that the price increase is indicated as an option in the rental contracts, so it also depends on the owners whether they take advantage of it. For example, this is not enforced in all cases with reliable tenants. In any case, the double-digit inflation expected in July and for this year may contribute to the further increase in the price of already issued sublets,” said László Balogh, the leading economic expert of ingtalan.com.
