Description topics

Rent increase incl. rent harmonisation
The average increase of rent including rent harmonisation.

When a dwelling changes tenancy, the rent increase may exceed the maximum increase valid for that year. This is called rent harmonisation. This increase has no connection with the annual rent increase per 1 July and can be applied at any moment in time. The rent after harmonisation however, may not exceed the maximum rent based on the Ministry of Interior and Kingdom Relations' Rent Point System.
Rent increase excl. rent harmonisation
The average rent increase for dwellings excluding harmonization of rents.

When a dwelling changes tenancy, the rent increase may exceed the maximum increase valid for that year. This is called rent harmonisation. This increase has no connection with the annual rent increase per 1 July and can be applied at any moment in time. The rent after harmonisation however, may not exceed the maximum rent based on the Ministry of Interior and Kingdom Relations' Rent Point System.
