Rental contract

When you finally find a home you like, you must sign a rental agreement. Normally, it is done with a real estate agent, with the organization, or directly with the landlord.

All rental contracts are provided in Dutch. An English translation can be included, but it can only be used in combination with the original contract in Dutch. Only the Dutch version of the contract is considered to be legal and should be signed upon agreement.

You can find both Dutch and English versions of the contracts provided by the Real Estate Council (ROZ) via this link. Please be aware that landlords can insert rules in addition to the basic regulations provided by the ROZ.
