Report overdue maintenance on rental home

Homes must meet certain requirements in order to be considered liveable. Is your home or a home in your street badly in need of maintenance and has the owner not made the repairs (on time)? Report this to the municipality.

Conditions

Are you renting a home or a caravan? Then you need to first report the overdue maintenance to the owner of the property in writing. Only once it becomes clear that the owner is not willing to solve the problems (on time) then you can report this to the municipality.

How long does it take?

The municipality will respond to your complaint within 10 working days. The municipality will investigate your complaint and assess the situation. If the maintenance situation does not comply with the requirements of the building code (see Rijksoverheid.nl), the municipality can force the owner of the property to have the problems repaired. The owner can get a statutory repair notice on the property from the municipality .
