Welcome at Woontank

Our website is in Dutch, but we would like to inform you on this page how you can rent an apartment and what the requirements are.

The final registration must be done via the Dutch part of our website. 

If you have any specific questions, please email us on info@woontank.nl.

Best regards, Woontank 

 

GENERAL: 

To rent an apartment first of all it is important that you meet the income requirements.

Do you want to rent on your own?

Then your gross monthly income, excluding holiday allowance, must be aprox 4 times the monthly rent. A fixed 13th month may be counted.

Do you want to rent with your partner?

Then the gross monthly income from both of you has to be aprox 5 times the monthly rent. 

Do I have to pay a registration fee?

No registration fee is required. Renting an apartment via Woontank and making a profile are both free of charge.

What is the minimum rental period?

A minimum of 1 year. After this the rental agreement can be terminated as of the first of the following month + 1 month. For example: you give notice on 19 April, the rental agreement will end on 1 June.

Does the rent include service charges?

Service charges come on top of the basic rental price at around €80 a month.

What is included in the service charges?

Certain costs will be shared for communal spaces used by all the tenants. For example, maintenance of the outside spaces, cleaning of the entrance halls and staircases. These costs come out of the service charges. You will receive a separate statement and an annual summary of these charges. The compilation of the service charges is prescribed within a statutory framework. Further information can be found on the website of the national government.

What are the monthly fixed costs?

As well as the rent and service charges there are a number of fixed costs. The individual energy costs depend on your usage. Furthermore, as a tenant you will pay taxes; water board tax and waste levy. For the insurance of your home contents, consult your insurance advisor.

What are the monthly energy costs?

Individual energy costs depend on your usage.

Can I park?

With some projects it is possible to rent a parkingplace in the parking garage. This depents if there are places available ofcourse. 

Renting is care free! Why?

As a tenant there are no surprises. You are flexible, no unexpected costs, no financial risk and a short period of notice. And large-scale maintenance? Nothing to worry about.

Can I view the apartments?

Due to building safety guidelines, it is unfortunately not possible to view the apartments well before completion.

Can I receive rent benefit?

The apartments are rented in the private rented sector. It is not possible to apply for rent benefit.

SIGNING UP:

  1. Register as interested in renting an apartment.
    (PLEASE NOTE: In addition to your registration for the newsletter, you must therefore register again as an interested person for an apartment).
    b. You then receive the login details to log in to your personal account.
    c. With this account you can upload the documents
    (NOTE: It is necessary to upload these documents in order to assess your registration).
    d. You can upload the documents in the registration form under the “attachments” page
    (NOTE: The “attachments” page only becomes visible after you have completely filled in the online registration form).

NB: Without your documents, your file is incomplete and your registration will not be processed.
