Living in Freiberg/Germany – What you should know

Service charges - Additional payments for water consumption, heating and electricity

The prices of private landlords are usually indicated without additional costs (the so-called cold rent). The additional expenses for ancillary costs are usually between 1.50 and 2.00 euros per square meter. The additional costs are usually paid monthly as a lump sum in addition to the cold rent. With the annual additional costs final account one pays either money after (with higher consumption) or receives money back from the landlord (with lower consumption).


For rooms in student halls of residence and in private accommodation, a deposit must usually be paid when moving in. This deposit is returned after moving out if the room or apartment is returned in proper condition.
