Everybody says “All inclusive”: how to be 100% sure it really is

Hi student 😊
searching for an apartment on rent in Milan, you often see in the listings “all inclusive” price.

How can be 100% sure it really is and avoid bad surprises?

😰  I guarantee nobody, agencies nor privates, offers a REALLY all inclusive price 😱

I would recommend you to be sure the following items are included:

✅  unlimited bills of electricity *, gas (cooking/heating) and hot water
✅  unlimited WiFi Internet
✅  condo expenses
✅  garbage tax (TARI), municipality tax (TASI),
✅  contract registration tax (it’s the 2% of the total rent for the period),
✅  annual check of the heating system
✅  agency fee and 22% VAT
✅  assistance during all your stay
✅  cleaning service during your stay and the final one after the check-out
✅  check-in and check-out service.

😳  In Italy usually these costs are charged to the tenants 😳

 

I would recommend you also to check if they provide:

✅  bed linen, blankets, pillows, bath towels, kitchenware, cleaning products, ironing tools, refrigerator, washing machine, vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, TV.

 

➡️  Last, but not least, it’s better to see the neighbourhood and the building with Google street view.
……If there isn’t in the listing, I recommend you to ask for a Video tour of the apartment and street where the building is facing.
……To see some Video reviews from the renters would be very helpful as well.

 

I would suggest you to see the posts I’ve recently published about the “Warning for students” and other useful information for foreign students searching for an apartment on rent in Milan.

♥️ All Rental Milan apartments have a REALLY all inclusive price! 🥂🍾

..

Thank you and good luck!
Ottavia 🤗

 

* Just to give you an idea, Electricity bills, for example, for a normal usage in a 1 BR apartment, could be also € 100/month if you use AC, induction plates or the oven, and they will be deducted from your deposit.

** It should be written clearly in the lease agreement with the owner and in the booking confirmation from the agency/website.
