The contracts of all the utilities remain under the name of the owner. Your rental apartment is ready to move in, with a functioning wifi connection, water, electricity, gas, etc. The energy costs are limited to a monthly maximum that is agreed upon in the rental contract.
What include the energy costs?
Standardly the energy costs include only electricity and gas, unless differently mentioned on the rental contract. Some owners also include the water consumption in the energy costs.
How about wifi?
Wifi is never included in the energy costs, and a standard wifi connection is always 100% included in the rental price. If the tenant wants an upgrade and a faster connection, the extra cost can be negotiated with the owner.
What if the tenant spends too much energy?
The energy costs are limited to a monthly maximum that is agreed upon in the rental contract. If the tenant consumes more energy he will have to pay the difference. This extra cost will be monitored by the owner and the Globexs rental agents, and claimed to the tenant either monthly or quarterly.
How are the energy costs calculated?
This depends on the location and the owner, but the energy costs are usually monitored by the actual invoice of the energy supplier, or with meter readings.
