Since June 2016 it is possible to temporary lease your house or apartment up to 2 years. Temporary leasing was introduced by the Dutch government to create a higher circulation in the rental market. Before 2016 it was only allowed by law to contract a temporary rental agreement via the Diplomat Clause, where it had to be provable that you were residing elsewhere because of employment. Another option was to temporary lease your property via the Dutch Vacancy Law (Leegstandswet), which meant that your property was active in sale. The last option was meant for owners who could not get their property sold but already purchased a new property to live. Both options had much paperwork and long procedures.
Because of the new temporary rental agreement legislation, the paperwork and long procedures are in the past. For temporary lease it is essential that the owner has a legally well-funded contract. All rental agreements of Dop Verhuur are drawn up by a lawyer and are adjusted to the concerning property. This way the owner and tenant are well-aware of the expectations, rights and obligations of each other.
