Buildings and rooms
There are no restrictions for the lease of buildings and rooms. Nor are there any procedural peculiarities. Rents are usually fixed and not indexed, therefore the term of lease is relatively short. Costs for electricity, heating, etc are customarily excluded from rent and have to be paid by the lessee.

Property Taxes, Fees, Charges
Property taxes are relatively low, and are likely to remain so. In Estonia the land tax is the only real property tax; buildings and forests are not taxed separately.

Land tax is based on the market value of land and ranges between 0.1 to 2.5 percent of market value of land annually (in Tallinn 0.6). Factors that affect the market value are location, land use and environmental characteristics. Landowners or in some cases land users (Local Government or state property) must pay Land tax.
