Den Bosch in action for rent freeze

Failure to pay is a formal objection

Renters are increasingly experiencing financial difficulties due to rent increases.

Refusal is legal. You do not have to agree to a proposal. Landlords do not mention this when they propose a rent increase. Spokesperson Abel Heijkamp of BPW Den Bosch: “The rents are rising every year and there seems to be no end to it. Home seekers have been on the waiting list for years. If something becomes available at all, it is often too expensive. More and more tenants are wondering whether the rent can still be paid. Many tenants already have to choose: decent food or pay the rent! Rising energy costs exacerbate the problems.”

Requirement: rent freeze on all rents for the next five years
