Description topics

Rent increase incl. rent harmonisation
The average increase of rent including rent harmonisation.
Rent increase excl. rent harmonisation
The average increase of rent excluding harmonisation of rents.
Rent harmonisation
Rent harmonisation is based on regulations set by the Ministry of
Housing, Spatial Planning and Environment. When a dwelling changes
tenancy, the rent may then be adjusted to a set maximum. This maximum
is based on the Ministry's House Value Rating System and can exceed
the inflation rate of the previous year.
