No maintenance? No thank you!


It does not matter whether you have lived in Eindhoven for a long time or have just found a home in our beautiful city, no one wants overdue maintenance. Homes with leaks, mold, wood rot, etc. Of course you don't want to live like that. Your landlord will usually ensure that complaints are resolved quickly and easily. However, this is not always the case. Huurteam Eindhoven can help you find a solution together with your landlord.

I came back from a week's leave and my entire living room was wet! When I looked at the roof, I just saw that two tiles were broken. I contacted my landlord, but I only had to call a roofer myself.

Should I repair these maintenance issues myself?

A landlord is legally obliged to maintain his rental property. What many tenants don’t know is that in the event of poor maintenance, the tenant can claim a temporarily lower rental price. There are some rules here, such as that you have informed the landlord and given him enough time to resolve the issues.

If it does not help, Huurteam Eindhoven can help you by starting a rent reduction procedure on the basis of maintenance defects with the Rent Assessment Committee. This gives the landlord an 'extra' incentive to solve the problem.
