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.

In the first couple of months in 2019, the rental prices in the free sector have gone up further. These numbers were published by rental platform Pararius. The price per square meter went up with an average of 4,9 percent in the first quarter of 2019; tenants pay now an average of €16,33 per month per square meter. In the smaller areas around the big cities, the rental prices have gone up even harder. The increase was higher in places like Haarlem, Schiedam and Almere than in Amsterdam and Rotterdam itself. Pararius indicates that the growth of the population is high in the smaller areas, but the building of new houses stays behind. This is an explanation for the increase in rental prices in the free sector.
