Most people base the location of their housingon a few main factors, mainly distance from their office/work location, and, if it applies, the distance to the school of their children. This is because, as with most areas in Qatar, there is a lot of construction going on, be it on roads or infrastructure or for development projects, so road closures and traffic jams are an everyday occurrence.

Once you have made up your mind, you will need a valid Qatari ID, a letter from your employer and post-dated checks when signing the rental agreement. Some buildings require a marriage license if you are moving in with a spouse.
