Rents will hardly drop due to newly proposed regulation

Download Report
The government wants to adapt the housing evaluation system to improve the affordability of rental housing. Minister Ollongren plans to achieve this by introducing a so-called ‘WOZ cap’. This should ensure that the WOZ value (estimate of the market value) of the home plays a lesser role in determining the level of the rental price. However, this rule only affects 1.5% of all rental houses in the Netherlands. As a result, hardly any households will pay less rent.
