WWDH Utrecht | Action at STUW: Stop the Rent Increase

We zijn klaar met de jaarlijks terugkerende huurverhoging! Ieder jaar wordt de huur maximaal verhoogd zonder dat verhuurders bedenken of dat wel nodig is. Dit jaar is het tot wel 5,8%. Dat is 30 euro extra per maand, dat maakt voor sommige een gigantisch verschil. In deze dure tijden is het belangrijk dat er na het betalen van de huur nog voldoende overblijft voor andere, noodzakelijke, uitgaven!

Meeting: We Refuse the Rent Increase in Utrecht

This year, the highest rent increase in 30 years is imminent. Rents have already increased by more than 35% over the past 10 years. This year they may increase by a maximum of 5.5% in the private sector and by a maximum of 5.8% in social rent. There is also an income-related rent increase and your rent may be increased by 25 euros (that is more than 5.8%) if it is lower than 300 euros per month.

Organizations in The Hague in action to freeze rents!

From July 1, the housing associations Haag Wonen, Staedion and Hof Wonen plan to increase rents by 5.3%, the highest rent increase in 30 years! For many people, this means an increase in charges of more than €30 per month, or €360 per year! An action coalition of SP The Hague, BPW The Hague, The Hague City Party and Wij Refuse the Rent Increase is therefore demanding a multi-year rent freeze in order to achieve structural tax relief for tenants in poverty in The Hague!

Call on your tenants' organization to oppose the upcoming rent increase! Send our standard letter

The highest rent increase in 30 years is coming in 2024, and most corporations plan to implement the maximum rent increase. This is not the case for many tenants' associations, in times of increasing insecurity. Corporations often do not respond to these concerns, and tenants' associations struggle with the landlord's position of power in rent increase negotiations. The We Refuse the Rent Increase campaign offers opportunities to put extra pressure on the landlord during these negotiations. Tenants' associations, for example, can choose not to agree to the rent increase. If the landlord does not respond, they can call on their members en masse to collectively refuse the rent increase based on our Step-by-Step Plan.
