Government intervenes on rental housing market

Back

The Dutch government intervenes on the rental housing market. The rental prices will become less dependent on the WOZ-value and skewed renters will pay more rent in the future. With these regulations, the government wants to even the housing market. The problems on the housing market are one of the biggest issues of this policital year.

In the calculation of the maximum rental price, the WOZ-value of a house will only account for 33 per cent. Now, this is often the reason for big rental price increases. Skewers will pay a lot more rent. This is a group that can afford a more expensive house, but choose to stay and live in social housing. This group will pay yearly an increase in rent of 50 to 100 euros, with a maximum om 720 euros. This way, the flow on the rental market is promoted.
