# Calculation of rent increase

Would you like to know the rent increase for the residential or commercial space you are renting/leasing? You can calculate it here.

Have a look at the general provisions of your tenancy agreement. It should clearly mention the formula for the annual rent increase. If you use the calculation tool below, it is important to know whether a monthly index figure or an annual average is used.

## Maximum rent increase private sector housing

The annual rent increase for private sector housing is capped until 1 May 2024. For the period from 1 January 2024 until 1 May 2024, the maximum rent increase is 5.5 percent (Dutch only). The calculation tool below does not take into account the maximum rent increase.

Please note that the maximum rent increase of 5.5 percent does not apply to business premises. The rent increase is calculated using the consumer price index (CPI). The CPI is published monthly by Statistics Netherlands (CBS).
