Split all-in rental price
All-in rental price
You speak of an all-in rental price if your contract contains only one fixed total amount. This price includes your rent including your energy costs and possibly service costs. Legally, this is according to art. 7:258 BW prohibited. Landlords are severely punished and lose 20% of the old all-rent when submitting correctly (art.17 Uhw).

We propose a split to the Rental Committee. The new rent will be € 247.50 basic rent with an advance energy costs of € 112.50. Marinda saves €90,- per month.
Final bill for advance energy costs
Does she not get a final bill for the energy costs? Then she can get money back again via a recovery of energy costs.
