The range of Batam property for rent is quite extensive, so you will have a good selection and price range to choose from. When you rent a property, usually you are required to pay one years rent in advance, although sometimes you can negotiate shorter term rental leases such as 6 months. You may be required to pay a bond to cover electricity and water, again these can depend on the owner and how you negotiate the lease.

Properties for rent can range from small one bedroom / one bathroom houses that rent out at approximately SGD$75 to $100 month, up to 4 or 5 bedroom / 2 or 3 bathroom houses that can be up to SGD$3000 per month. On top of the rental costs you will also be required to pay for electricity, water, gas and telephone (if a phone is installed).

Batam property for rent is available to foreigners, as Indonesian laws and regulations relating to property rental allow for foreigners to sign rental leases in their name.

Some areas that houses for rent are available in is Sukajadi Housing Complex, Coastarina Housing Complex, Tiban Housing Complex, Anngrek Mas Housing Complex, Mediterranean Housing Complex, Villa Panbil Housing Complex and Nagoya city.

In places such Nagoya and its surrounding suburbs, there are many Rukos (which is short for “Rumah Toko” and means Shop-House). These are usually 2 or 3 floors, with the ground floor being used as a shop or place of business, and the second and third floor being occupied by the owners of the shop, or their staff.

New units are generally bare inside and will require renovations to turn them into a shop, as well as renovating the other 2 floors, as they usually only have concrete floors (no ceramic tiles) and are un-furnished. They generally don’t have any kitchen area, so this needs to be made, and come with only one basic toilet / bathroom per floor.

You can also find units that have been previously occupied, and can represent a good bargain, as many of the renovations have already been done, such as kitchen areas, laundry area, and toilets and bathrooms have being made to a much better standard than the original set-up.

They may only need minor changes to the first floor to set it up as a shop or business, you should try and find a Ruko that was used previously for what you intend to use it for (such as retail shopping store / car repair / home maintenance, etc). This can save considerably on the up-front costs, and probably won’t be any more expensive for rent than empty un-renovated Rukos.

Two or Three Floor Shop-Houses
