Make sure to pay on time
You are obliged to pay the monthly rent on or before the last weekday before the turn of the month. If you fail to pay the rent, LU Accommodation has the right to terminate the housing contract. Costs in connection with this action, (as court costs, legal fee) will be paid by you. The rent is based upon the rent LU Accommodation pays for the room/apartment to the Landlord on the date of signature of this contract. If the Landlord modifies the rent after signing the contract, LU Accommodation is allowed to modify the rental fee stated in this contract accordingly.
Why is the rent different from month to month?
The monthly rent varies since it is calculated on a daily price, which means that the amount on the invoice depends on the number of days per month.
What is included in the rent?
All accommodations are fully furnished and equipped with kitchen- and household utensils. Costs for electricity, water and heating are included in the rent as well as Internet. Cleaning and upkeep are the tenants' own responsibilities and as LU Accommodation does not provide home insurance it is important for the tenant to ensure that they are covered.
