Q: What is the commission and what are the costs?
We can be brief about that; there is none. As a tenant you do not pay brokerage or brokerage fees. You pay the first month's rent and deposit tot he landlord before exchanging the keys. Rent is always paid one month in advance.
In some cases (own entrepreneurs or tenants with an increased risk) a deposit or bank guarantee is requested. You also have to pay these for key handover when signing the contract
Q: Can someone vouch for me?
A: Yes that is possible. The guarantor must therefore also sign.
Q: What are the monthly fixed charges?
A: In addition to the rental price, you must take into account a number of fixed costs. Your individual energy costs depend on your consumption. The Nibud website provides a good indication of this. As a tenant you also pay the following municipal taxes: water board tax and waste tax. For more information, visit the website of the Municipality of Breda
Q: Are pets allowed?
A: Usually pets are not allowed. You will find this in the description of the house.
Q: As a tenant, what maintenance do I have to carry out myself?
A: With the lease, you will receive the "Minor Repairs Decree" as standard, which clearly states which minor maintenance is the tenant's responsibility.
Q: What is covered by service costs?
A: Service costs are costs that are in addition to the basic rent of a house. For example, costs for cleaning, garden maintenance, upholstery and furniture and the caretaker. Utility costs are the costs for gas, water and electricity for which the tenant has his own meter. View this page of the National Government for more information.
