Amsterdam houseboat rent security, due diligence




In addition to the rent, the tenant must pay an amount towards the actual utility costs.

For 2013, these were [per month];

Watergruwel; 142 [inc. TV / Internet]

Realengracht; €211 [inc. TV / Internet]

Muselaer €273 [No TV / Internet was connected at the time]

Please note that these are very rough guides; actual costs vary greatly according to pattern of use [Home all day in winter = more heat and light costs], services [internet, TV], and personal habits [turning off lights, turning down heat].

In addition to these costs, you will get some taxes from the city of Amsterdam. These are roughly the same whether you rent an apartment or a  boat. These fees are beyond my control.

In addition, the city considers the annual "liggeld" or "Precario" to be the responsibility of the user [tenant] registered at the address on January 1 of the year. That can be unfair for someone who rents for more than or less than a whole year. And since this is a large bill [nearly a month rent] I pay for it. But it's the responsibility of the tenant to  pass the bill on to me in good time.

If you rent a houseboat from someone else, remember to ask about this before signing the contract.
