Description topics

Rent increase including harmonisation
The average rent increase for dwellings 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. However, the rent after harmonisation may not exceed the maximum rent based on the Ministry of Interior and Kingdom Relations' Rent Point System.
Rent increase excluding harmonisation
The average rent increase for dwellings excluding 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. However, the rent after harmonisation may not exceed the maximum rent based on the Ministry of Interior and Kingdom Relations' Rent Point System.
