Residents living in apartments can bring the apartment rental agreement to the police, often this is enough, since you already had to notify the police of your place of residence before.

You can also ask the owner of the apartment to fill out and sign a special form confirming the legality of your residence in the rented apartment. The owner must certify this paper with a notary. You can download the form (Potvrzení o zajištění ubytování (fyzická osoba)) from the website of the Ministry of the Interior here: http://www.mvcr.cz/clanek/formulare-zadosti.aspx

Personally, I will live in an apartment, so I have a slightly different set of documents: confirmation of residence from the owner of the housing, a residence contract and an extract from the real estate cadastre.

I downloaded the residence confirmation form from the website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the owner of the apartment filled it out and signed it:

The signature of the owner of the apartment is notarized.

An extract from the real estate cadastre can be obtained either from the city administration (Městský úřad) or from the post office. Personally, I took it at the post office, in the window with the Czech Point icon.

An extract from the real estate cadastre costs 150czk. Includes information about where the apartment is located and who owns it. Anyone can take an extract from the cadastre, for this it is not necessary to be the owner of the apartment or the tenant. No one will ask you why you take it.

A certified copy of the residence agreement is submitted to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the original remains in your hands. I made copies and certified by mail. The window is the same – Czech Point. The cost of copying is 3 czk per page, assurances are 30 czk per page. You can also make copies and certify them in the city administration.

The accommodation contract must fully cover the time of your stay in the Czech Republic by dates. Two nuances follow from this. If the contract is signed for 11 months, then you will be given permission only for 11 months, and not for a year.
