From 1 May, the property value may count for less towards the amount of rent. It may then only be taken along for a maximum of 33 percent, according to Minister de Jonge for Housing and Spatial Planning. In this way, the government wants to keep rents within limits in certain countries with a large housing shortage.
The municipalities use the WOZ value (property value) to determine the value of homes. When there is a shortage in areas, the rents are so high that many people find houses unaffordable.
With these measures, social rent would remain as it is, says de Jonge. to make low-income families more likely to have affordable housing.
It would be about 23,000 homes that will remain available, including for social rent.
