A tenant would like to sign a lease for an apartment that will be occupied part-time as he has his full time residence in another EU country, but spends a significant amount of time in Brussels for a long-term consultancy role. Given his main residence abroad, he would elect not to indicate that this will be a primary domicile.
What type of contract is appropriate in this situation? Is it a common law lease or a secondary residence contract as modeled on this website? Is it possible to enter into a primary residence contract and not be registered in the municipality?
Thank you in advance for your help and suggestions.
No this is not possible. If he doesn't want to register at the town hall, he can only sign a a secondary residence contract --> no protection at all, main residence contract law (that protects very much tenant's rights) will not be applicable.
But if he has a long term job in Belgium, and is employed by a company with a Belgian contract, he needs to be registered at the commune to get a National Number (necessary to have a "mutuelle" in Belgium ad to profit of all the social security rigths foreign employees in Belgium do have)!
Moreover it is compulsory by Belgian laws for every non-Belgian who wants to RESIDE in Belgium for longer than 3 months to register at the town hall....

I don't think it is not allow to sign a primary residence contract. But a landlord will be better with a secondary residence contract.
