How much deposit do I need to rent a place in Portugal?

Updated on September 21, 2020

According to the second paragraph of Portugal’s civil law, the landlord has the right to ask for a cash deposit from the tenant to prevent damages that may be caused by him while living there.

While it has no threshold, landlords often require one or two months of safety deposit, and it is used only in the case the tenant causes damages to the rented property. Otherwise, the deposit is returned in full to the tenant by the end of the lease duration.
