When renting a single room, using type form A9 is incredibly simple. It is the landlord’s responsibility that the lease is filled in properly.

Right below, we made a short list of items that you must be aware of when signing the lease.

When reviewing the lease, watch out for:

  • Is the information on the landlord correct (We recommend you use Google)
  • Be aware of section 3 in the lease, so you are sure of  how much you must pay in rent and aconto
  • Make sure the landlord only takes what they are entitled to in terms of deposit and prepaid rent (no more than what corresponds to 3x monthly rent in deposit and prepaid rent each, so a total of 6 months’ rent)
  • Check if the lease is time-limited
  • Ask if the landlord intends to use the residence or property for something else later, so you know how long you approximately can live there
  • If “The residence is newly renovated” according to the lease, make sure this is actually the case. Otherwise, it can be very expensive for you, when you move out
  • Read Section 11 very carefully, since this is where all exceptions to the standard terms of a lease are written.

In general, you should remember the following:

  • You have no right of withdrawal once you have entered an agreement with your landlord
  • Never pay money under the table. It is important that you can document any and all payments made
  • Make sure that all agreements are written on paper or digital

It is important to note that the lease (and especially section 11) may conflict with the Rent Act. If this is the case, the conflicting terms will be declared void, regardless of whether you signed it or not.

We hope you found this useful. Right below you can download your type form A9 lease, ready to be filled out.
