WOZ values and rental properties
The maximum rent for rent-controlled housing known as ‘ social housing ’ ( sociale huurwoningen ) is presently limited to €720.42 per calendar month. Rents for this type of house are determined by a points system. The WOZ value is used to calculate the number of points, which then determines the total of rend that the property owner can charge tenants .
For lease properties in the private sector, there is no maximum lease price, so the WOZ value is not relevant. Since the City of Amsterdam does not keep track of which rental properties are part of the social housing grocery store and which are in the private sector, everyone who rents property in the city will receive a letter listing the WOZ value.
