Rental prices up 1.3% in the Netherlands

The prices of rental housing in the Netherlands are estimated to increase by a maximum 1.3 percent per July 1st.

The rent adjustment is inline with the Dutch inflation rate, as agreed in the coalition agreement, said Minister Piet Hein Donner of Internal Affairs and Kingdom relations Tuesday to the House of Representatives.

It has already been laid down that the number of home valuation points in regions with housing scarcity is increased with a maximum 25 points depending on the WOZ value.

The higher maximum rent does not affect current rental agreements, according to Donner: “They should apply the maximum rental rate increase.”

Owners can choose to charge higher rental prices for new rentals. The actual rental prices average 72 percent of the maximum rent amounts, according to the latest figures on the 2010 rental policy.
