Once you pay the first month’s rent, the place is yours! HousingAnywhere charges a small one-time service fee equal to approximately 25% of the first month’s rent (minimum of €150 and capped at €250). We protect your rent and transfer it to the landlord only 48 hours after you’ve moved in.

25% one-time service fee

Pay your deposit, monthly rent and any extras

Any post-booking costs (e.g. administration or furnishing fees) are between you and your landlord, so no extra charges apply. You can transfer any of these funds for free via our secure online payments system.

The one-time service fee is usually equal to approximately 25% of the first month’s rent, (min. €150 and max. €250). By removing this fee, we hope to give you more financial flexibility.
You only need to pay the first month's rent, plus the one-time HousingAnywhere service fee. If a security deposit is required, it will be stated in the listing. Security deposits are paid after the booking and – if your landlord sends you a payment request – you can securely pay yours via HousingAnywhere. We secure all your payments and only transfer them to your new landlord 48 hours after you have moved in.
Your landlord can send you payment requests for each monthly rental installment for the duration of your tenancy. We will send you reminders before the due date and provide you with a transparent payment overview so you can keep track of everything. If your landlord doesn’t use our payment request feature, they will provide you with their own instructions on how to pay your monthly rent. Note that the first month's rent is always paid through HousingAnywhere and is only paid out to the advertiser 48 hours after you move in.
HousingAnywhere is not an agency, but a rental platform that brings tenants and advertisers together. Charging a service fee enables us to continue improving this platform and provide you with a customer support team dedicated to the safety of your booking. Some advertisers that are active on HousingAnywhere may charge an agency fee in addition to the HousingAnywhere service fee. This will be shown in the listing description and the advertiser will contact you about this agency fee after you have confirmed your booking.
Unfortunately, you cannot split this payment as the transaction on HousingAnywhere can only be completed at the moment of booking by one user. You can ask the advertiser to add additional tenants to your rental contract if the advertiser provides you with one.
