What may be included in your rent

Every accommodation you rent out can have different rental specifications:

  • Basic rent (in Dutch – kale huur) is the costs of your accommodation only.
  • GWL / GWE (gas, water, electricity) and perhaps internet and TV are the costs for the utilities you may need to pay. Please note that in some cases your rental contract might not include these costs. In this case, you should arrange contracts with these providers by yourself.
  • Service costs are the costs that you pay to the landlord to maintain the house, e.g. cleaning the common areas, electricity for the common areas, etc.
