About basic rent, additional costs, direct debit and rent allowance

Rent consists of the basic rent and any additional costs. Additional costs may include gas and/or electricity used, water consumption, and service costs for the maintenance of the communal areas and the green spaces. Such costs generally only apply to apartments. Additional costs (where applicable) are charged as an advance. The real amounts due are settled annually.
