Rental price and service costs

Service costs are often too high.

The most common service costs are gas, water and electricity, internet, upholstery and furniture. In the example, the service costs are € 200,00 per month. The service costs are equal to the total rent of € 800.00 minus the basic rent of € 600,00. All costs that are charged in addition to the basic rental price are service costs.

You pay service costs as an advance. The landlord must provide you with a statement of the costs every year. The service costs statement is an overview of all the costs incurred by the landlord.

The landlord is not allowed to make a profit on the service costs. If you have paid too much you must get it back, even if you have moved. Private landlords in particular demand high service costs and do not provide statements. This causes tenants to miss out on a lot of money.

Service costs statement

Insight into the service costs.

There are different ways to get a service costs statement. You can ask the landlord to make a statement. Usually the landlord does not do this. You can then start a procedure at the Rental Committee (Huurcommissie).

The Rental Committee determines how much you should have paid. If you have paid too much, you must reclaim this amount yourself. You do this via a procedure at the court.

A procedure at the Rental Committee takes six to eight months. The court procedure also takes about eight months. In many cases it takes longer than a year to get a statement and to recover the overpaid service costs. Most tenants think this takes too long or have no understanding of this and leave it there.

Bumarang then investigates whether you have paid too much. If you have paid too much, Bumarang will collect the overpaid amount. We hope that more comes back from the landlord than we pay to you in advance. The difference is the profit for Bumarang.
