What You Need To Know When Renting Your Own Home

Gas water light.

In many cases, you rent a house without gas, water and light. For this purpose, you can enter into a contract with your energy supplier. You then make a monthly advance payment, followed by final billing based on consumption at the end of the year. If you have used less than the advances made, you will either get the money back or the monthly advance will be reduced. If you used more, you have to pay the difference.



More information on energy disconnection can be obtained from many suppliers:

Internet / TV

To use the internet at home, you sign a contract with your internet service provider. Many ISPs also offer TV subscriptions. Note that this does not apply to Polish television. The price differences relate to the speed of the internet. The higher the price, the faster the internet is.

           

 



Report:

If you are moving into your own home, you must register with the municipality. For this you can go to the town hall in the respective municipality or in many cases it can also be done online.
