When you have found a suitable tenant, the lease can be drawn up and signed. We offer you the option of a ready-made rental agreement. You can easily enter the data in the rental contract generator. The rental contract is completed in full, is immediately ready for use and can be signed.

We also have some tips that are important to record in advance.

Clearly record for which services rent is paid

It is important that the tenant knows what is and what is not included in the rent. This means that he does not face unexpected expenses. The rental price can be inclusive or exclusive of service costs and costs for the consumption of gas, water and electricity (gwe).
If the costs for gwe are included, this is always an advance based on the estimated consumption of gwe. The difference between the estimated and actual consumption must then be paid or returned by the tenant at the end of an agreed period.

Service costs can include costs of different types of services or use thereof, such as various municipal charges, maintenance and cleaning of the common area, services of the caretaker and the facilitation of the internet. Determine what is included in the rental contract.

Determine how long the lease will last

In general, a minimum rental period is agreed. The tenant cannot leave the house during that period. The tenant can leave the house after this period with due observance of the notice period which is equal to the payment period. A contract with a maximum rental period can only be concluded in specific situations, for example if you are staying abroad as a landlord or if the house is rented out under the Vacancy Act.

Keep in mind that the landlord with a lease – in which the rent is determined – of longer than 12 months, may still increase the rent after a minimum of 12 months.

Make a note of defects when moving into the home

When the tenant moves into the house, he is advised to preferably walk through the house together and note all defects. If necessary, take photos so that it is certain that no disagreement can arise about the exact defects. This prevents the tenant from paying for defects that were already in the home, and you as the landlord from paying for defects caused by the tenant.

Agree who is responsible for which defects

If a window does break, the sink is full of scratches or the kitchen cupboard falls apart from mold, it is important that the tenant and landlord have stated in the lease who is liable for each type of defect and the associated costs.
