Rental law

The rental law in the Netherlands gives the landlord and the tenant a number of legally determined obligations. These legally determined rules are called the mandatory laws and apply when no diverging rules have been established. Every tenant, also students, can call upon their rental rights.

Quite often, different rules apply to students who rent a room, in comparison with regular tenants. Students are, for example, not allowed to rent a student apartment after they have been unsubscribed from being a student. In case you think that your rights are being compromised with the landlord, you can receive legal assistance. Your insurer will then cover this legal assistance, on the condition that this is included in your insurance.
