In general, Indonesian people's understanding of rental houses is that they just have to pay the rental fee and then they can live in it straight away, but in reality this is not the case. In some rental houses, residents also have to pay for several other facilities, such as cleaning, electricity, water, and so on. Meanwhile, apartments are a type of rental house with far more complete facilities compared to boarding houses or rented houses. So what costs must be paid if we want to rent an apartment?[1]

Fees That Must be Paid When Renting an Apartment

According to Colliers Property Observer, Steve Sudijanto, apartment rental costs have 3 main components, namely: apartment rental costs, building service costs, and daily needs such as electricity, water, parking and so on.[2]

"There are 3 components to the cost of renting an apartment, the first is apartment rental, the second is service charge or building maintenance, and the last is electricity with building management rates, parking and water," explained Steve. Steve also explained that parking fees in apartments are of course mandatory to pay attention to, because these fees are not cheap and there are various types. Usually apartments provide 2 types of parking fees, reserve parking and non-reserve parking.[3]

Who Will Responsible for Damaged Apartment Facilities?

Property Development & Investment Specialist, Anton Sitorus said, there are two types of damage, if the damage occurs before the handover process, then the damage is entirely the responsibility of the developer, this is different from damage that occurs when the occupant has occupied the room after a long time.[4]

"If the damage is caused by us using it, it is not borne by the management. However, if the structural damage is not due to our own use or is simply an error by the building contractor, it can be claimed and reported to the management. Regarding who will cover it later, it depends on negotiations." Anton answered. Anton also appealed to prospective buyers to check the condition of the apartment before signing the agreement and handover letter.[5] And if you have any legal issue in Indonesia territory, contact us for business inquiry, feel free in 24 hour, we will be glad to assist you.
