Yes, you must pay 2 months’ worth of base rent as a deposit. 

Energy costs are the costs for gas, water, and electricity. The monthly part made up by energy costs are an advance payment and based on an estimate of the expected use. These costs are settled once a year. Each studio has its own electricity and water meter. From this calculation, it shows whether you have paid too little or too much in the past calendar year. We will then pay back a sum or send a separate bill. The costs of gas is calculated proportionally. Services we and/or third parties provide are service charges. For example: cleaning of the building, (maintenance of the) intercom and, connection for WIFI. In your rental contract you will find which services fall under the H83 service charges.
