Frequently Asked Questions
One of the differences between a temporary contract and an indefinite contract is the end date. Temporary contracts have a specified end date whereas indefinite contracts have not. After the temporary contract ends, action is required from the landlord in order to terminate the contract. If the landlord does not announce the termination of the contracts, the temporary contract will be extended automatically and turns into an indefinite contract.
An indefinite contract does not end unless the tenant terminates. With an indefinite contract, the landlord does have the right to set a minimum term - usually 12 months. During this minimum period the tenant cannot terminate the lease.
Some landlords require a gross salary minimum of 3 - 4 times the monthly rent. In case you don't meet this requirement, proof of savings or a guarantor is sometimes sufficient.
Most commonly the deposit is 2 months of rent. In case you don't meet some other criteria from the landlord they can charge up to 3 months. Please note that deposits can be negotiable.
Most contracts link the rental increase or also called 'price indexing' to the CPI (cost price index) which is the inflation ratio of the country. This means that your rent can be increased by a small percentage p/month. The contract does have to specify that the rent can be increased on a yearly basis in order for the landlord to do so. Any additional rent increases are usually not allowed by law.
