Lack of maintenance

<p>
In the Netherlands there are a lot of rules regarding the rental price for a room or apartment.
<br>
<br>
For example, a landlord is not allowed to ask more than a certain amount for your living space. This maximum rent is calculated on the basis of a legal point system. Depending on the size and facilities of your room, points are awarded or deducted. The more points, the higher the rent that the landlord may charge.
<br>
<br>
If you contact Frently within the first six months of your lease, we can retroactively reduce your rent. If you have already passed the six month term we
can stil reduce your rent. The starting date of your reductions will then lay in the future. Are you wondering if you rent is higher than legally permitted?
Go to our <a href=”http://frently.nl/en/rentcheck.php”>online rent check</a> and find out.

<h5>An example</h5>
<p>
Linda pays a basic rent of € 275.- per month. She has a room with central heating on the Grote Markt. The surface area of her room is 12 m2. Linda shares her kitchen, bathroom, washstand and toilet with three roommates.
She has no outdoor area and no bike storage space.
<br>
<br>
According to the law this room will be awarded 83 points. That corresponds
with a maximum rental price of € 168,80. This means Linda’s landlord is charging far too much rent for her room every month. She is entitled to a rent reduction of € 106,20 per month.
