What is the bank account of Markt058?

  • Bank account: NL18 INGB 0009 3503 99
  • BIC/ SWIFT code: INGBNL2A (required for payments from foreign accounts)
  • On behalf of: Stichting Huurgelden Huisvesting Wolf

You have to transfer the first payment to this bank account yourself manually. You will be informed about this when we send you the contract. Once you are a tenant at Markt058, we will collect the rent from your bank account automatically through a direct debit. For this, you need to open a Dutch bank account.

Do I have to pay for the whole month, even if I move in on a random day?

No, you do not. You only start paying from that starting date of your tenancy agreement. This can be any working day of the week. Please keep your preferences in your profile up-to-date. If we are going to offer you a contract, we will do our best to accommodate your preferences.

Other service charges do not form part of the calculation rent, which determines whether or not you will receive a housing allowance.

Do I qualify for a remission of municipal taxes?

All households in the Municipality of Leeuwarden receive a tax assessment for sewerage and refuse collection charges and a water authority tax assessment. These assessments the Municipality of Leeuwarden sends you are for personal taxes. Since you live in Markt058 and are recorded in the population register of the Municipality of Leeuwarden, you will receive these assessments. Just as any other resident, you must pay these municipal levies yourself.

Part of the advance payment for service charges is for the waste collection service. As the Municipality of Leeuwarden has now installed underground waste containers, we do not need to contract a company to collect your waste. As soon as we settle the service charges, you will be refunded any overpaid amount.

If you have any questions about the invoices the Municipality sends you, the easiest thing to do is visit the Municipality of Leeuwarden website where you will also find information on whether you are eligible for a partial remission.

When should I pay the rent?

You pay the first month’s rent, service costs and deposit in advance. We will send you instructions on how to transfer the amounts in advance.

After the first month, we will collect the monthly costs before every new month starts by means of a direct debit from your Dutch bank account (IBAN).

What is the difference between the deposit and the guarantee form?

The deposit is the amount that you transfer to us before your contract starts. If you deliver the apartment neatly and on time afterwards, we will refund your deposit. The guarantee form is a statement from your parent or guardian that you must upload in your profile. You or your guarantor do not have to pay the amount on the guarantee form in advance. In case you would you fall behind in your payments or cause major damage, higher than your deposit, we can contact your guarantor.

When will I be repaid the deposit?

If you have left your apartment clean and tidy and have no rent arrears, you will be repaid your deposit in any case within a month. However, we try out utmost to repay this amount within one to two weeks.

The rent will be debited from my bank account each month. How do I open a bank account (from abroad) so that the rent can be debited from my account?

For EU citizens

There is only one bank we know of that makes it possible to open a Dutch bank account before you live in the Netherlands: Bunq. They don’t require a Burgerservicenummer (BSN) at the moment you apply for a bank account. They do require your BSN within 90 days after your application. This means that you can open your bank account 90 days before your arrival in Leeuwarden. You will get your Burgerservicenummer after your registration at the municipality of Leeuwarden.
