How much is the deposit and are there one-off costs?

As is usual with other leases, the deposit is three net base rents (the net base rent plus utility costs is shown in the lease). There are no processing or agency/commission fees.

What are the available options for paying the rental deposit?

Where can washing machines/dryers be placed/stored?

There are storage facilities in the bathroom or, if available, in the storage/utility room of the apartment.

Is the tenant responsible for the house and pathway cleaning, as well as for the winter road maintenance?

No. The owner commissions an external service provider for this. The tenant bears the costs as part of the operating cost levies.

Who are my contact persons?

The team from Müller Merkle Immobilien has been hired to take care of the leasing. The property management is responsible from the time the lease is signed and for the transfer of the residential units. The contact details will be relayed upon conclusion of the lease. The property management is your first point of contact during the entirety of the rental period.

We hope that we were able to answer your key questions. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

Kindest regards,

The vierhochvier rental team
