Description topics

Real rent increase incl. harmonisation
Real rent increase (including rent harmonisation):
The rent increase including harmonisation is corrected for inflation for the period December to November of the previous year.

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.
