Rental contract

When you finally find a home you like, you must sign a rental agreement. Normally, it is done at the real estate agent, with the organisation, 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 the agreement. You can find both Dutch and English versions of the contracts provided by the Real Estate Council (ROZ) at this link. Please be aware that landlords can insert rules in addition to the basic regulations provided by ROZ.
