Case No. 146/2020: Ruling

Lease for indefinite period. Heating costs.

The tenant considered that he had paid too much for heating during his rental period. The Rent Act states that the landlord is to pay the costs of water, electricity and heating of the rented premises; however, derogation from this division is permitted. The lease between the parties stated specifically that the tenant was to pay for electricity and heating, and also contributions to the residents’ association’s fund in accordance with information/demands from the residents’ association. The landlord submitted invoices to demonstrate use by the tenant.

The Complaints Committee saw no grounds for recognising the tenant’s claim since nothing in the case indicated that the heating costs paid by the tenant had been excessive.

Conclusion: The tenant’s claim for reimbursement was rejected.
