The monthly rent is comprised of both the basic rent costs and utilities. Rent prices are determined in accordance with §6, subsection 1, 10 of "Gesetz über die Studierendenwerke des Landes Hessen" (Studierendenwerk Law) at the suggestion of the management and on decision of the Studierendenwerk Verwaltungsrat (Administration Committee).
Utility costs include: street cleaning, garbage removal, house cleaning, exterminations, window cleaning, snow and ice removal, property and liability insurance, cable, taxes, electricity, water, water removal, heating and hot water costs, building maintenance, elevator maintenance (if available), caretaker works, analysis of drinking water, etc.
Property and liability insurance includes the costs of the building insurance against fire, storm, water and other natural disasters, glass breakage insurance, liability insurance for the building and the elevator.
We recommend all tenants to take out a liability insurance policy against possible damage claims that might arise from the rental agreement. Moreover, we recommend a homeowner's insurance policy that includes insurance against bicycle theft.
A non interest bearing security deposit of 200 Euro will be collected upon signing the lease. This deposit minus moving out flat rate will be returned approximately ten weeks after the end of the contract.
