How to calculate the rent?
For any person, the topic of calculating or calculating the rent is quite relevant. To fully understand this issue, you need to understand what you are paying for. In this article we will talk about how to calculate the rent yourself and what it consists of. As it turned out, not all important points of housing and communal services are included in the payment receipts.
Calculation of rent in 2013
First of all, you should know that the area of the apartment and the services provided by the housing and utilities sector are the main indicators for calculating the rent. And knowing these things, you yourself can calculate everything. Metric area of any apartment is the main indicator for payment of utilities and all expenses. If you have elevator lighting in the stairwell, this is all included in the calculation. Also here can be attributed the area near the entrances, over which the observation is carried out, protected glass in the windows of the entrance, and in some cases, front gardens can be included in the calculation. Naturally, all the readings of water, gas and electricity meters are included in the payment and are multiplied by the number of people who live in this area of an apartment or house.But if there is a homeowners association in your house, then there is some kind of agreement between the tenants on the terms of payment.
Next, we consider the question of how the rent is calculated, and what services may still be included in it. The rent may include services that cannot be taken into account using measuring meters. In this case, there are standard rates for services that need to be multiplied by the number of people living in this apartment. If there is a replacement of glass, window frames and burnt light bulbs, as well as the repair of the heating system, then the cost of all this is included in the receipt for payment. In order to somehow change such a system of payment of a communal flat, an HOA is created - a homeowners association. Here, all participants have the right to determine the size of the monthly mandatory payment for certain services, which is set at the general meeting:
- Cleaning house and house adjoining area.
- If carried out overhaul or light home repair
- Planned repair of the heating system, electricity and water.
- Correction branch gas.
- The use of elevators and the export of waste waste.
Checking the rental rate
In 2012, the Ministry of Regional Development introduced a new type of receipt for utility bills and housing. The receipt has the most detailed information. Payments in new types of receipts for electricity, hot or cold water, the heat was divided into two parts:
- The first part is own use of services according to meter readings located inside an apartment or at standard rates.
- The second part is the needs of obschedomovye, the testimony is removed by obschedomovomu counter.
In the old receipts, the amount was total, and it was not entirely clear how it was redistributed among the owners of the house. For example, how to calculate the payment of lighting and heating of the entrance.
In addition to all this, the new payment will include all standards for the use of services for each type. In order to check and understand how the rent is calculated, it will not be necessary to revise a whole pile of documents. In addition, the management organization must necessarily look at the testimony of the general meters, which not every house manager is doing at the moment. In the new receipt there is an opportunity to pay the monthly rent by installments, which is very important and pleasant for the debtor.If the price at the end of the year or quarter of any service is recalculated, the managers will have to work hard in order to clarify this action in the paragraph “bases of recalculations”.
Rent subsidy in 2013
The potential share of costs for payment of services is set separately for each subject. If the total income in the family does not even reach the subsistence minimum, then the maximum allowable share of expenses is reduced due to the correction factor. The coefficient is equal to the difference between the average income of each family member and the subsistence minimum.
Now you know how the rent is calculated, what subsidies are, on which indicators the calculation itself depends. This will help you make your own calculations and plan your expenses correctly. In addition, such control is useful to those who plan to save on this type of payment, so as not to overpay the services of excess funds.
