The hire of the living premises is composed of:

  1. The part of the residential dwelling management expenditure, which is proportional to the floor space of the living premises;
  2. Profit.

The management expenditure consists of:

  1. Expenditure necessary to maintain the residential house (dwelling sanitary and technical maintenance, payments for the management and service stuff);
  2. Residential dwelling depreciation (amortization) transfers for the renovation of the building fixed in the regulatory enactments;
  3. Obligatory payments fixed by the law (Real Estate tax, etc.);
  4. The rental for the usage of the land, if the residential dwelling is located on land owned by other person.

The housing stock includes single-dwelling residential buildings, residential premises in multi-dwelling residential buildings and residential premises in non-residential buildings.

Income from housing stock management is generated from payments for the maintenance of residential buildings (sanitary maintenance, technical services, maintenance of the administrative and service staff), depreciation deductions for the renovation of the building as well as mandatory payments prescribed by the law).

The rent of living premises is the transfer of the rights to use the living premises on charge to the other person.

The rights to use the living premises to the other person can be transferred by the owner or manager of the living premises, as well as by the self-government, if the person has obtained the living area on legal bases in compliance with the law "On the help in the solution of the housing questions".

The subject of the hire contract can be separate dwelling, part of the dwelling or residential house. A part of the dwelling or room giving access to another, as well as the auxiliary premises (kitchen, passageway, storeroom etc.) cannot be the separate subject of the hire contract.
