The rental price comprises the rent and ancillary costs. In real estate advertisements, these two elements are shown separately. Ancillary costs include, for example, heating, water, cleaning, electricity and other shared costs etc. The amount of the ancillary costs is indicated in the rental agreement.

In advance-payment invoices, the monthly ancillary costs are accounted for; the actual ancillary costs are nevertheless only calculated at the end of the year.
