How do I pay the deposit?

Deposit information

The deposit is 500 euros per person for every apartment type.

Please note that in a shared studio apartment and in a shared room in a shared apartment both tenants have to pay their own deposit.

The deposit is not for paying the rent, but rather a guarantee for Hoas in the event that the tenant does not pay the rent or other fees, or they damage the apartment. The deposit cannot be used to pay for the last month's rent, and it cannot be used while the tenancy agreement is in effect.

How to pay the deposit

The deposit must be paid by a bank transfer. Cheque, credit card or cash payments are not acceptable.

Please use the correct account number and reference number when you pay the deposit. You must also deliver a receipt of the payment to Hoas.

On your apartment offer you will find necessary information for the deposit payment and the final date for the delivery of the required documents.

International bank transfer fees

Please note that it is your responsibility to take care of any charges for international transactions, so you should add them to the amount to be paid. Any added costs will reduce the amount received by Hoas. Your own bank can advise you about the bank fees.

Returning the deposit

Information about returning the deposit after the end of your tenancy agreement can be found in the section Returning the deposit.

What kind of receipt of the deposit will you accept?

The receipt should provide the following information:

  • Name of payer
  • Recipient of payment
  • Recipient bank account number
  • Date of payment
  • Sum
  • Reference number

Payment status must be Executed or Paid. A receipt that shows the payment as reserved cannot be accepted as such payments can still be cancelled after printing the receipt. The receipt can be sent via email or regular mail. Email attachments must be in uneditable format. Read more on paying the deposit and accepting the housing offer.
