There is a "permiso" for that, although it is now known as a "Salvoconducto individual - Mudanza". There was quite a lot of paperwork involved in the process, including a notarized "moving permit", but I fortunately had quite a lot of time to chase it all.GAminer wrote: ↑Mon Jul 20, 2020 2:53 pmHow were you able to change regions during this quarantine?tiagoabner wrote: ↑Mon Jul 20, 2020 2:06 pmI asked for a discount in rent because I knew the market was pretty much dead (not because I needed it). My contract would run out on June 30, so I reached out to my landlord in March to check if they would be willing to budge. They weren't, so I started to look for options.
I was previously paying $850.000 for a furnished, 600 sqft, two-bedroom apartment close to the corner of Apoquindo and Manquehue, in Las Condes. It was at a desirable location and I got it during the protests last year (IE. I moved in a hurry, I didn't have time to shop, I was previously living next door to the protests), so I was surely overpaying a bit. I found similar apartments going as low as $650.000 in the same area, or slightly lower in other areas close-by.
I eventually rented a non-furnished, 900 sqft, two-bedroom apartment in Concón for $450.000. I now have a sea view and I'm living at an apartment 50% larger and I'm paying much less for it. I'll most likely buy it in 1-2 years. I'm fortunate that the industry I work at wasn't really hit by the pandemic, so I was in a good position to shop around.

Yeah lots of people could have done what he's done out of impulse for better future prospects, just sayin'.. not to lose focus.. he did something illegal, I don't think the system should save these multi properties small investors. Just sell it or face foreclosure and get it over with.fraggle092 wrote: ↑Mon Jul 20, 2020 11:45 amDidn't make my comment very clear, but I wasn't sympathising so much with this individual except as the victim of a system that allowed him enough rope to hang himself. Of course he overextended, and there are of course many Chileans in worse circumstances.
I was actually referring to this grossly materialist society where getting money to conspicuously consume seems to be the only point of life. Hence the drug dealing example. But maybe I should have kept my ideas to myself!
