Regulated rental agreement
If you have a regulated rental agreement, you can send a notice of objection to Vesteda. If Vesteda deems your objection to be unfounded, it will be submitted to the Rental Committee.
Terms and conditions of objection
As a tenant with a regulated rental agreement, you can object to a rent increase in a number of cases:
- The rent increase is more than the maximum rent increase.
- The rent is above the maximum rent amount under the points system following the rent increase.
- The notice of proposed rent increase contains errors, for example an incorrect start date or rent amount.
- Your landlord wants to increase the rent again within twelve months.
- You received the notice of proposed rent increase less than two months before the effective date.
- The Rental Committee has temporarily reduced the rent amount due to serious defects in maintenance that have not been rectified yet.
Objection due to low income
You may object to an income-dependent (higher) rent increase in a number of cases:
- Your income is too low or has fallen.
- Your household has one or more residents who have reached the state pension age.
- Your household contains more than three people.
- You are chronically ill or you have a disability.
Objection not accepted
You cannot object to a rent increase in the following cases:
- The rent increase for your residence is less than 5.1%. (NB: If the rent increase is less than 5.1% but subsequently exceeds the maximum rent amount, you may lodge an objection.)
- There are defects in maintenance.
If you have a liberalized rental agreement, you must contact the district court to lodge an objection.
