The rental prices can vary greatly depending on the equipment, size and location. In individual cases, of course, an individual assessment is required on our part.
How are the ancillary costs?
In the case of a rental for less than a year, we recommend a lump sum for the ancillary costs, since the exact data can only be determined with the additional administrative effort of an interim reading when renting for less than 12 months.
If the energy costs (electricity and heating, possibly water) are mainly billed via the respective energy carrier, an exact billing of the costs is possible here, since the registration with the energy carriers is made by the tenant.
Who concludes the rental agreement?
The rental contract partners are always tenants and landlords.
As a rule, Zeitwohnen Hannover prepares individual rental contract drafts that are ready to be signed for the benefit of both tenants.

Which apartments have a good chance of being successful?
Two important criteria determine the success of renting out a furnished apartment: location and Furnishing.
Location: Apartments in central inner-city locations / popular districts with an attractive environment (restaurants, cafes) and good connections to local public transport (bus and train) are often desired by interested parties and are better rented out than, for example, apartments in the region (district) or on the outskirts.
Equipment: The future tenant will have a fully furnished apartment as well complete equipment to appreciate, this includes, for example, household items, dishes, kitchen utensils, a basic set of bed linen and towels, etc.
The furnishing should contemporary, modern and as good as new and correspond to the rental price. A TV set is not a new technical achievement, but a standard. Washing machine, microwave, hi-fi, DVD / video, telephone and internet are very popular and should at least be standard for apartments in the upper price segment.
Overall, the apartments should be in a clean and tidy condition; the renovations and modernizations should have been carried out regularly. That should not only include cosmetic repairs but also, for example, modernizing the bathroom, heating, etc. Homely accessories underline a cozy atmosphere and increase the attractiveness of the property.
Apartments with discarded, older, thrown together pieces of furniture are becoming increasingly difficult to rent and only at significant price discounts.
So-called trade fair apartments with a higher number of beds than rooms have relatively little success outside of trade fair times.
Zeitwohnen Hannover will reject apartments that are in need of renovation and / or damaged, soiled furniture.
At the end...
A furnished apartment should be clean, tidy, functional and contemporary. Luxury apartments are just as little wanted and expected as apartments of a very low standard.
