Regardless of the contract type, you always have to pay one full month’s rent when you reserve the room, which will be counted as the first 30 days of the contract.
There are two types of contracts, which are chosen by the landlord for each accommodation:
Your rent is calculated in proportion to the days of your stay. In other words, you only pay for the days you are accommodated.
For example: If you set a move-in date from the 18th of September until the 26th of January, you will need to pay full month’s rent in October, November, and December. You only partially pay for twelve days in December and 26 days in January. September and January will be charged on a pro-rata basis.
Full months are always charged. If you move into the property on a different date from the first day of the month, you will still be charged for the entire month.
For example: If you set a move-in date from the 18th of September until the 26th of January, you pay full month’s rent for September, October, November, December, and January.
