Those who rent a home in the private sector are paying on average 4.5 percent more than they were a year ago. Increases in social rent have been less pronounced.
In het kort
- Huurprijzen in de vrije sector zijn gemiddeld 4,5 procent gestegen, stijging bij sociale huur zeer beperkt.
- Verhogingen waren het grootst in Friesland.
- Huurprijzen bij nieuwe bewoners veel verder omhoog, gemiddeld 10,9 procent.
For example, you now pay an average of just 0.1% extra if you rent social housing from a company, according to figures from statistics agency CBS.. If you rent from an individual or investor, your rent is now 3.7 percent higher on average.
In fact, the increases can be completely different. For example, there are tenants who received a discount this year due to their limited income. In fact, other tenants have received a larger increase from their housing association, for example.
In addition, rents also rise when a new resident moves into the building. On average, the rent in those cases has increased by 10.9 percent this year. This is the largest increase since 2014. The fact that rents are rising so dramatically for new residents is that landlords are bound by less stringent rules.

The increases are greater in Friesland
If all categories are combined, rents in our country are 2 percent higher on average than last year. The increase was the largest in the province of Friesland, at 2.4 percent. Flevoland had the least increase, at just 1.2 percent. Among the four largest cities, rents rose most in Amsterdam (2.8 percent) and least in Utrecht (2.4 percent).
In this study, CBS only considered the base rental price, so, for example, without service costs and lighting costs in public areas such as the elevator or gallery.
