The offer of an apartment to the applicant will be confirmed only upon receiving, within the required deadline, a scanned copy of the receipt of the bank transfer to the EUI bank account of the equivalent of half month rent (for 1 to 3 months stay) or 1 month rent (for 4 to 18 months stay) as advance payment. If the applicant fails to then sign the rental contract, he/she loses the whole advance.
The caution money will become the rent deposit when the contract is signed o. The deposit will be paid back to the tenant after the final check on the premises and furnishings, and after all payments of rent have been credited to the EUI. Former tenants get their deposit back by 60 days after the end of their rental contract (for 12 month contracts this means 31st October) and only after careful examination of the apartment.
When the contract comes to an end, it is understood that it is terminated without any need to give notice, and that the tenant is under the obligation to return the property immediately, explicitly acknowledging the temporary nature of the rental agreement, based on the Institute’s objective to assist EUI community members. For any matter not explicitly dealt with in the current regulations, Italian civil law applies.
Rent and the lump-sum amount for utilities (condominium, electricity, gas and water), must be paid by the 10th of each month by bank transfer to the European University Institute. When rent is overdue, the tenant will be contacted immediately and will be requested to settle the outstanding amount. If the tenant does not pay the rent within 15 days from the date of this request, proceedings will be started to suspend rights (see Decision n. 13/09 Du President) as a tenant and the right to use some EUI facilities.
Italian law requires that all tenants and their partners be registered and, where applicable, supply their passport or national ID card details, visa and codice fiscale (= Tax Code).
