How Much? (for the Thulestrasse 1)

This page is here for all the budgetting for the thulesttrasse place (description here.) , but for now it's mainly the first three months. So let's start!

  More informations about moving in here.

prices

Warmmitte (rent + flat rate for gas, water, heating) = 1600;

Kaltmitte (only rent)  = 1150;

Kaution (deposit) = 3 times the Kaltmitte  = 3 * 1150 = 3450;

Estimate for elektricity = 150 per month; (Does anyone have actual experience in Germany/Berlin? I got this from the Belgian rate. Denmark is much worse)

Estimate for elektricity installation = 100 once; (ditto)

Internet = 50 per month;

Internet installation = 100 once; (estimate)

obligations

  • pay at least one month of kaution for 3 months
  • start paying rent from the 3d month. We got 2 months for free, in exchange for non painted walls and no installed kitchen. This was considered not bad for 2300 euros.
  • pay costs of 450 (warm - cold) for the first 2 months

the plan

  • Kaut = kaution
  • W = warmmitte
  • Kalt = kaltmitte
  • c1 = cost of gas, heating
  • c2 = cost of elektricity, internet
  • cinit = cost of installation of internet, elektricity

We talked about paying all the kaution up front, to have a good relationship with the landlord. So that's all on the first month. Another import thing is that we start paying rent from the first month, so we would have 2 month of rent in a communal pot. This would be needed from the start for the kitchen and other first-off things.

 Month Amount    CalculationRemarks
 1    5050 3 * Kaut + Kalt(pot) + c1 + c2 + cinit Pot has 1150
 21800                    Kalt(pot) + c1 + c2 Pot has 2300

 n

1800    

W + c2


the 7 people calculation

The observant reader wil have noticed that every month will cost us 1800, apart from the first one. Assuming 7 people:

each month: 1800 / 7 = 257.142857

first month5050 / 7 = 721.428571, 750 for round(?)

who are these people?
