To be able to rent a house, it is important that you can pay your rent every month. The following income guidelines have been drawn up for this purpose: 

  • Minimum gross monthly income of 3,5 times the monthly rent; 
  • In case of two incomes, the second income counts for 50%; 
  • Pensioners need a minimum gross monthly income of 3 times the monthly rent due to the lower tax burden. 

Holiday pay, fixed bonuses and a thirteenth month may be added to the gross annual income.
