An example rental agreement in English for your stay in The Netherlands

Arranging housing in a foreign country can be complicated, which is why you can use all the help you can get. You can find you room via Kamernet – that is the easy part. After you have an agreement with your landlord, you must sign a formal agreement that includes all the terms of your stay. This is important, because the agreement can be helpful is there is an accident in the house or if you plan to stay a longer (or shorter) amount of time.

What should your rental agreement contain?

Your rental agreement should contain at least the following points:

  • Name of the tenant
  • Name of the landlord
  • Duration of the agreement
  • Rental price
  • Deposit height
  • Early termination
  • Possible extension of the agreement
  • Consequences for potential damages and accidents

These are the most important details and should be entered correct in your rental agreement. Here you can find an example rental agreement in English. Please keep in mind that it is an example that should be carefully examined and applied to your personal situation.

Good luck and enjoy your stay!
