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 is your rent including your energy costs and possible service costs. Legally this is according to art. 7:258 BW prohibited. Landlords are severely punished and will lose 20% of the old all-rental price if they submit correctly (art.17 Uhw).
- Marinda (20) has a room with her own kitchen and shower. Only the toilet is shared. The room is approximately 25m2 and she pays €450 all-in rent. Marinda asks us to check her contract. We propose a split to the Rent Assessment Committee. The new rent will be €247.50 basic rent with an advance on energy costs of €112.50. Marinda saves €90 per month.
Final settlement of advance energy costs
- Does she not receive a final settlement of the energy costs? Then she can get money back through a recovery of energy costs.
