Find out whether your home can be rented out in the private sector.
Are you a homeowner in the Netherlands and would you like to know whether you can rent out your home in the private sector? HousingNet has a partner who can help you with scoring, the energy label and sustainability advice. We understand that it is very important to know whether your property meets the points system for rent, so that you can make an informed decision about what to do with your property. Can you rent in the private sector? Or are you dependent on the regulated market? In the latter case, selling may be a better option.
The home valuation system for homes (WWS), also known as the points system, is a system used to determine whether a living space may be rented out in the regulated or private sector. The maximum rental price of a social rental home is also determined in this way. Real estate outside the regulated sector is not subject to a maximum rental price.
In the event of disputes between tenants and landlords about the rent, the Rental Committee checks whether the requested amount is permitted on the basis of the housing valuation system.
Real estate owners can carry out a point count. The scoring is based on several factors. The following matters, among others, are considered:
The points awarded by the various components and the associated rental prices are recorded in tables. These tables can be found on the government website. If the rent is higher than what is stated in the tables, this is considered an unreasonable rent and a tenant of a social rental home can apply for a rent reduction through the Rent Committee.
