Moving in

Moving out

As part of a rental agreement, you must pay three months of rent in advance as well as one month’s prepaid rent. The prepaid rent can be used as payment for any of the three months in the notice period, typically the last month of the rental period.

Upon entering into a lease, you pay the first month’s rent. This means that you must be able to cover five months’ rent at the start of the lease. You pay the power grid company directly for water and heating. You pay the landlord for internet access in the apartment.

The move-in process involves a moving in check, a condition report of the apartment, and an apartment meter reading, where you must register with a power grid company. Any errors or deficiencies in your apartment should be reported to the administration office within 14 days of receiving the keys.

If you have to terminate the apartment at some point, you will be required to attend an apartment inspection approximately 14 days before the end of your rental period. An apartment condition report must also be prepared prior to your moving.

At the time of the inspection, you must be out of the apartment to allow it to be refurbished for the remaining 14 days of your rental period, with the security deposit you already paid. Typically, you will receive your deposit settlement 8-10 weeks after your rental period ends.

There is no smoking allowed inside the apartment, so neither you or your guests may smoke there. In case of a violation of the smoking ban, the apartment may be terminated, and additional costs may be required to renovate the apartment.
