Practical such an all-in price, right? Perhaps for the administration, but it is absolutely not allowed. This makes it impossible for you to check whether you are paying too much. We are talking about an all-in price if the advances for gas, water, electricity and service costs are included in the rent and there is no specification of these costs in your contract. The host should specify where your service charges will go so that you don't overpay. The landlord is therefore not allowed to mention an all-in amount, but is always obliged to specify this.
An all-in rental price is convenient for you as a tenant, but not allowed, because you cannot verify whether the landlord has actually incurred all costs charged. With an all-in rental price you cannot reclaim the overpaid service costs, because it is not clear what amount of the rent is service costs. This is partly because the landlord usually does not submit a final settlement of the service costs.
We can make a proposal to the landlord to split the costs of the rent. If your landlord does not agree to this, we will do everything we can to find a solution together with the so called 'huurcommissie'. In many cases it appears that too many service costs are paid and that you are therefore entitled to a refund! If it turns out that the basic rent is still too high after splitting, you may be able to get a lot more back and also lower your room rate!
