Charges

I wonder if I have to pay charges every month?

Rent and Charges are indeed payable every month, but are prorata for part months.

The electricity, gas and water bills will get auto deducted from my bank account right?

 

If your electricity, gas and water bills are included in your monthly charges, you will not need to pay anything extra monthly. However, from time to time, your meters will be read and if you have consumed more than estimated, an extra charge will be added to your monthly statement. But then again, if your consumption is lower, you will received a rebate.

 

If these are not included in your monthly charges and you open your own electricity, gas or Internet account when you arrive, your payments will be deducted automatically.

 

Normally, water charges are included in your Monthly Charges and again, from time to time, your meters will be read and if you have consumed more than estimated, an extra charge will be added to your monthly statement.

Are the electricity and water provisions based on a reasonable estimate of an average household’s consumption?

 

The electricity and water estimations are based on an average consumption, depending of the last tenant consumption and landlord’s bills.

We cannot determine how much electricity or water you will use in advance. Actual consumption is regulated by regular reading of the meters and charged at the current rate as stated on the invoices received by the owner of your accommodation.

What is included in the charges? How is it calculated, and can it change?

 

Depending on the accommodation, your charges may include the following:

  • Electricity

  • Gas

  • Internet

  • Fuel

  • Rubbish collecting tax

  • Building charges

  • Water

 

Estimations are based on landlord’s invoices. As meters are read before you arrive and after you leave, your actual consumption will be calculated and regulated if needed.

How is the amount of the electricity regularization calculated? 

In order to do the charges regularization, we ask your landlord the last invoice to take into account the following:

  • The unit price per kWh

  • The unit price of the subscription fee per month

  • The unit price for the different taxes

  • The VAT percentage

 

For the calculation of your real consumption, we take into consideration :

  • Your readings, based on your entry and exit inspection if regularization made at the end of your rental.If the regularization is made during your rental, we will consider the last reading known (usually the entry reading) and the new reading known (made by the electric company or by the agency),

  • Your rental period (in order to calculate the subscription fee and a tax).

 

In your estimated monthly charges, an amount is allocated to your electric consumption (mentioned in your leasing contract) : this amount is pro-rated based on your rental period.

The regularization will be your real consumption minus your provision paid.

How is the amount of the gas regularization calculated? 
 
In order to do the charges regularization, we ask your landlord the last invoice to take into account the following:

  • The unit price per m3, the conversion rate in kwh

  • The unit price of the subscription fee per month

  • The unit price for the different taxes

  • The VAT percentage

 

For the calculation of your real consumption, we take into consideration :

  • Your readings, based on your entry and exit inspection if regularization made at the end of your rental. If the regularization is made during your rental, we will consider the last reading known (usually the entry reading) and the new reading known (made by the electric company or by the agency),

  • Your rental period (in order to calculate the subscription fee and a tax).

 

In your estimated monthly charges, an amount is allocated to your gas consumption (mentioned in your leasing contract): this amount is pro-rated based on your rental period.

The regularization will be your real consumption minus your provision paid.
