What does Huurteam Leeuwarden do?
Determines your accurate rent amount
Huurteam Leeuwarden, at the request of the tenant and / or landlord in the private sector, determines the accurate or reasonable rent of the house or a room based on the scoring points system. We make an ocular visit to your rented place or dwelling and we evaluate its condition through the scoring system. We take a look at the elements of your place, as well as its location to calculate the total scoring points. The total number of points determines the maximum rent of the house. On the basis of these computations, we can then determine whether there is too much (or too little) rent was calculated.
Defects in the rented property should be fixed by the landlord. If your landlord fails to do so, despite one or more notifications from you, you may be entitled to a temporary rent reduction until the problems are resolved.
Service charge (servicekosten)
In addition to the rent, you also usually pay service charges. This is a repository of costs incurred by the landlord to the tenant. Those are rules. We will check whether those rules are applied in a good way.
Landlord and Tenant Law (Rent Law)
Of course every landlord and tenant must comply with what is stipulated under the Rent Law. Huurteam Leeuwarden can best advise you on what you can do in your situation.
