Consequence of Hugo de Jonge's plans: rents become more expensive instead of lower

Two months ago, minister of Housing Hugo de Jonge presented his ‘affordable housing program', which includes a proposed regulation of about 90% of the Dutch rental housing market. A fairly radical and particularly counterproductive plan, of which anyone with any knowledge of the subject knows immediately it will not work. 

Plan for more middle rent is far too drastic and will only make the rental supply smaller and therefore rents more expensive

The ink on the new regulations as of May 1 is not yet dry or Housing Minister Hugo de Jonge comes up with the next (proposed) new regulations in his "Affordable Housing Program".

As of May 1, 2022, the point system will change. Will you still be able to rent in the free sector?

We have often paid attention to this; the announced change in the point system. Each time the date was pushed forward. But now it is definitive: per May 1, 2022, the WOZ value may only count for a maximum of 33% in determining the number of points. And that can have major consequences for the rent you can ask. Especially if you rent out a small house (ca. < 65 m2) and / or if you have a poor energy label.

Smoke detectors are mandatory in Dutch houses per July 1, 2022

As of July 1, 2022, smoke detectors are mandatory in every home in the Netherlands. This obligation already exists for some time for newly built houses, but the regulations will also apply to existing buildings.

Self-occupancy obligation in Amsterdam goes into effect on April 1, 2022

Previously we wrote that several municipalities, including Amsterdam, want to introduce a self-occupancy obligation. On February 16, the City Council of Amsterdam agreed to the introduction of a self-occupancy obligation for ALL homes with a WOZ value of up to € 512,000.00 as of April 1, 2022.

Rent increase 2022 for social sector housing
