1. Are the utilities included in the rental fee?
No, the rental fees do not include utilities. Each apartment has an approximate utility price listed on its respective page. Common utilities in Hungary include water, gas, electricity, common cost, and wifi. The utility fees are calculated based on your usage. Unlike the rental fee, utility fees are paid at the end of the month, after the usage is reported.
2. What is the common cost in utilities?
The common costs for utilities in condominiums typically include expenses such as water, electricity, gas, heating, garbage disposal, sewage, and maintenance of common areas such as hallways, elevators, etc.
In addition to utilities, other common costs may include insurance, property taxes, management fees, and reserve funds for future repairs and maintenance.
These costs are usually shared among all the apartments and are calculated based on each unit’s size, number of occupants, and usage. The exact amount of common costs can vary widely depending on the location, size, and amenities of the condominium complex.
3. Can I rent a room for one semester only?
We rent out our flats from the 1st of September until the 31st of January and from the 1st of February until the 30th of June. These two rental periods are based on a standard academic semester in Hungary.
4. Can I move-in the room earlier?
Please reach out to us via email to get information on early move-in. Each extra day is 15 euros a day (utilities included).
5. What is the security deposit for?
The deposit is equivalent to a two-month rental fee. In the case of any damages or outstanding payments, the deposit acts as a security guarantee. Deposits are transferred back after the end of the lease agreement
6. When do I get back the deposit?
After the end of the contract, we inspect your room and the common areas, and we transfer the deposit back to you.
7. What if I have to leave earlier during the period?
In this case, you have the possibility to find a replacement for your room, someone who would take over the obligations stated in the contract. It is up to you to find a replacement and prepare the room for a handover.
