How and where do I pay my bills?

At the beginning of each month you should pay the rent for your bedroom as well as your proportional part of the previously described expenses to be divided with your flatmates (utilities). Solrent will provide you with a bank account where you can make a deposit in just one payment with your flatmates. Solrent will send you the invoices via e-mail so you can verify them. 

In the case of flats belonging to Unirenta, payments will be made at their management office located at #1 4ºC Gran Capitán Avenue.

You should understand that the utilities have nothing to do with the rent. The management office limits itself to providing the tenants with the supplier company’s utilities bill. The amount on the utilities bill exclusively corresponds to you and your flatmates’ energy consumption. 

What is the security deposit and when will it be refunded?

The security deposit is intended to ensure the compliance of the responsibilities agreed to by the tenant. The security deposit is the equivalent of one month of rent and should be given to the property, who will then deposit it until they verify at the end of your stay that the bedroom has been left in good condition. 

The security deposit cannot be used in any circumstance as rent payment. It is quite complicated to use the security deposit as payment except for in very exceptional circumstances. 

The safety deposit will be refunded once the keys have been submitted or at the end of the rental agreement.
