Rental Team

Do you have a nice room and do you want to know if you don’t pay too much rent? The Rental Team will visit you to calculate the maximum rent for your room and can help you reduce the rent if it turns out to be too high.

For the rent of a room, a “maximum permitted rent” applies by law. The Rental Team can calculate this rental price for you on the basis of a legally determined score.

If you pay too much rent, the Rental Team can help you reduce the rent. In addition, the Rental Team can enter into a discussion with the landlord about a new rental price or initiate a rental reduction procedure with the Rental Committee.

If there are maintenance defects in the home, the rent can also be lowered. Examples of maintenance defects are leakage, mold formation, or no good ventilation options in the bathroom, for example. In addition, the Rental Team can also check whether the service costs are not too high for you.

The Rental Team works as follows:

– The Rental Team will visit you to calculate the number of points in your room.

– They calculate on the spot what the maximum rent for your room may be.

– They advise and help you in the procedure to the Rental Committee to request a rent reduction and object to a rent increase.

– If maintenance is overdue, the rent can also be reduced. Here too they offer you support.

The rental team is a project of the municipality of Utrecht, so the entire procedure is free. In addition, they arrange everything for you from home to the rental reduction. < / span>

“Taking action right away. I really like that”

Justin, 2nd year of Industrial Design

After I had done the point check on normalehuur.nl I found out that I paid 80 euros too much rent every month! I forwarded my email to the Huurteam Utrecht and was very happy with the good help I received. They came to do a free poll and then helped me take the right steps to raise my case with the Huurcommissie.

“Knowing exactly where you stand”

Kirstin, 1st year psychology student

I had no clue that there were any rules regarding how much rent can be asked for. When a friend told me about normalehuur.nl, I looked straightaway and I was shocked about how much higher my rent was than it was supposed to be! I wanted to do something about this immediately and contacted the VIDIUS legal service who adviced me regarding legal actions I could take.

“No worries anymore thanks to NormaleHuur”

Anne-Fleur, 3rd year mechanical engineering student

After checking my rent on normalehuur.nl, it appeared I was paying too much. I was too anxious to deal with this because you never know how your landlord will respond. Thanks to the great guidance of Huurteam Utrecht, I could professionally address my problems to my landlord!
