Action meeting 'We refuse the rent increase' Den Bosch – May 30, 7:30 PM

Since 1993, rents have increased by 141%! This year, many Den Bosch corporations, investors and private landlords will add more than 5% on top of that! While our wages have been moderated, rent has become unaffordable after years of cuts, mismanagement and market forces. A quarter of tenants cannot make ends meet financially after paying the rent! To tackle the housing crisis, the government must structurally invest in public housing instead of unilaterally passing the bill on to tenants.

That is why we are taking action against the upcoming rent increase. More than 800,000 tenants do not have enough left over for essential living expenses after paying the rent. Nevertheless, landlords and the government have decided to put further pressure on the livelihoods of their tenants by continuing with the highest rent increase in 30 years. Time for action! Join us and refuse the rent increase! Also let us know what the proposed rent increase of more than 5% means for you via this survey. 

Tenants' association Bomenlandflat supports the action and uses the campaign to put further pressure on the international slum landlord Heimstaden in the context of the overdue maintenance, lack of much-needed renovations to the flat and the proposed sale of apartments in the Bomenlandflat, which will further reduce the social housing stock. is further stripped down.

Take action!

Action group 'We Refuse the Rent Increase' is fighting for social security and a multi-year rent freeze. We do this by massively refusing the annual rent increase as of July 1 based on a simple step-by-step plan. How? Come to the action meeting on Thursday, May 30, from 7:30 PM at the Boomhut neighborhood and action center, Esdoornstraat 67 Den Bosch. If the weather is good, we sit in the courtyard near the internal parking lot of the Bomenlandflat. In case of bad weather we will hold the meeting indoors.
