The rental price of a home can be calculated using a points system. Based on the surface area of the living space, the facilities, the energy efficiency and the WOZ value, it can be calculated how many points a living space receives. The number of points determines the maximum rental price. The monthly rent may not exceed the price that corresponds to the number of points for the accommodation. Bumarang can help you to get a lower rent.
If the rent in the contract is higher than the rent based on the points system, the rent can be reduced. Bumarang helps you to lower the rent. We do this with the help of the Huurcommissie. This is a government agency that can make a binding decision on the amount of the rent.
How exactly does that work? We are paid from the rent you overpay until the rent reduction. Anything you save after that is entirely yours. We ask for the overpaid rent back from the landlord. Once we receive that amount, you get another 20% of it.
If the rent has been reduced, the reduction is legally binding. You can pay the lower rent without risk. This is how we make rent reduction easy.
As a tenant you are well protected in the Netherlands. This means that your landlord cannot cancel the rental contract because your rent has been reduced.
