Finding a place to stay in Qom honestly isn’t that easy. SOQ volunteers are here to help. The typical way is to approach a housing agent in different areas of the city and see what’s available. Once you have found a place to stay, you will need to negotiate the deposit and rent. The process of renting a house is different from other parts of the world. Here landlords collect a fairly significant refundable deposit upfront e.g. 4,000 – 5,000 Euros. However, the monthly rent may then only be 10 to 100 Euros – depending on your house/apartment.
