During the check-in we will make pictures of all damages and write it down on the report. The tenant has two weeks time to report any problems that are not found at the time of the check-in. Please make pictures of all damages that you found and send it to us. We will apply you for Gas and Electricity by NUON and water by WATERNET.
Starting from the date of the check–in and the handover of the keys, the tenant is fully responsible for the rented property, even if this date is not the first day of the contract
Please note that the check-out should be on the day that you are ready to hand over the keys at which time the property should be in the same condition as it was during the check in.
For some of these measures, it is wise to keep the receipts and present them at the check-out.
Please be aware that:
Should the accommodation not be ready for occupancy by a new lessee at the final date due to - for example - insufficient cleaning, incomplete inventory or damages, the landlord is entitled to hold the departing tenant liable for both the days of late delivery and the costs for the extra labor/material involved.
Other matters to arrange:
o If the utilities are in your name, we kindly request you to inform the utility company that you are leaving. They will need the meter readings which will be read at the check-out. They will also need a forwarding address from you, as you may be entitled to money back and they may need more (bank) details from you.
o Please, arrange the disconnection of the telephone and television cable if these are in your name.
o Kindly, inform the municipality/registration office of your departure. Again you may be entitled to money back if you have paid for a full year of municipality taxes.
o Arrange for your mail to be forwarded to your new address. Post.nl offers this service. You can either go to the post office and ask for a "Verhuisbericht" or go to http://www.postnl.nl/ontvangen/doorsturen-en-bewaren/verhuisservice/
