Affordability of housing is under pressure
The affordability of housing is under pressure. We believe that a rental home should be and remain affordable for you. For that reason, we allocate our rental homes to new tenants in a responsible manner and we work with the Nibud to help make your housing costs transparent.
Each spring, you will receive an email or letter from us announcing the annual rent increase for your home. Each year, the government determines the maximum rent increase for our government-regulated homes.
- In 2023 the regulated segment will have a maximum increase of 3,1%.
- In 2023 the liberalised segment will have a maximum increase of 4,1%.
Over the period January 1, 2023 to May 1, 2024, liberalised and regulated housing is subject to a maximum rent increase based on the lower of either inflation or the collective wage trend, plus 1%. Inflation from 1 December 2021 to 1 December 2022 was 9.7%. During the same period, the collective wage development was 3.1%.
We believe that the best way to boost mobility in the housing market is to build more homes.
For this reason, we do not make use of the option of imposing an additional (income-related) rent increase on tenants who are able to pay more rent.
We gathered the most frequently asked questions and their answers about the rent increase.
