This tool calculates rent adjustments in the private housing sector according to the consumer price index (CPI) of Statistics Netherlands (CBS). The annually permitted rent increase (or decrease) can be determined easily this way. It concerns rents which at the start of the tenancy agreement exceed the so-called rent liberalisation threshold, which isolates the private housing sector from the social housing sector. As of 1 January 2020, this limit stood at 7137,14 euros. It is also possible to use the tool to calculate the increase in rents of commercial buildings. Your tenancy agreement mentions how the rent will be increased annually. If you wish to perform more than one calculation or adjust your selection, press Ctrl/F5 first to refresh the view.
The maximum rent increase in the social housing sector is set by the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK). More information can be found on rijksoverheid.nl/huurverhoging (Dutch only).
