The part made up by utilities is based on an estimation of the expected use. The service charges regarding, among other things, internet connection, the contribution to the cleaning of common areas, security, the caretaker, etc. have been determined based on the regulations of the rent committee and are fixed.
These paid service charges are settled in arrears once a year with the actual usage costs. From this statement it will become apparent whether you have paid too much or too little in the past calendar year. We will then either refund or bill you for the relevant amount. Based on this statement, the service charges are re-established and a new advance payment is determined. You will receive a settlement of the actual costs six months after the ending of a calendar year. If you move, you may find that you have to wait a while for the final bill.
