Over the past few years, we have established a great network of local partners who have been able to handle technical issues in the rental properties we manage. Unfortunately, we have found that not everyone always has the time and motivation to quickly take care of small tasks for us, and often unreasonable prices are charged. For our landlords and tenants, we believe it is important that issues (including smaller tasks) are addressed as quickly as possible. For our landlords, we want this to be done at an acceptable rate . To maintain and even improve our service at a high level of quality, we have decided to hire our own maintenance and repair technician. This will give us greater control over the execution of the work, and enable us to prioritize urgent matters. Our colleague Nathan works from Deventer and serves the areas of Deventer, Zwolle, Apeldoorn, Almelo & Enschede. Of course, our goal is nationwide coverage. With our growing management portfolio, we hope to achieve this in the future! If you have any questions, please feel free to send them to email@example.com.
In December, the House of Representatives and Senate approved a law amendment that changes the maximum rent increase. As of January 1, 2023, the allowed annual rent increase in the free sector is set at 4.1%. The rent increases will now be linked to wage increases instead of inflation, provided the wage increase is lower. The inflation rate from December 2021 to December 2022 was 9.7%, while the wage increase was 3.1%. Therefore, the allowed annual rent increase in the year 2023 will be a maximum of 4.1% (3.1 + 1 percentage point) in the free sector. If the proposed law had been rejected, the maximum rent increase would have been 10.7% (9.7 + 1 percentage point). Source: Rijksoverheid

In 2021, according to Statistics Netherlands, the number was 2,110. This is a 75 percent decrease. According to criminologist Jesper van der Kemp of Vrij Universiteit, the number of burglaries is decreasing because homes appear to be better protected. There are a number of scientific studies around the world that show that better security reduces the amount of burglaries. There are many different ways of ensuring your home is secure. Think of cameras, locks and alarm systems that work excellently to keep burglars out. There are also more and more traceable devices that people have in their homes. Phones can be traced faster than before. However, it still happens. The police therefore have the following tips: - Leave a light on, close windows and lock doors - Use hinges and locks approved by the PKVW - Also lock the garden gate and the shed Source: Nu.nl
