I pay too much rent, and now?
If you think you are paying too much rent, so when the basic rent is above the maximum rent, you can do a rent reduction request.
Step 1: do the rental check on normalhuur.nl.
Step 2: Contact the Hiring team . They come to you for free to check how much you could pay for your room.
Step 3: have your rent checked by the Huurcommissie! This determines what a reasonable rent is. If the rent is too high, you can get the overpaid amount back. The decisions of the Huurcommissie are binding.
