Accommodation in The Hague

Some words of advice

Check whether the agency is listed on the Dutch Chamber of Commerce website (in Dutch, but simply insert the agents name in the search bar to look for listings). We advise you to check if the agency really exists. Be critical and check for reviews or warnings. Please be aware that during your (online) search you might encounter frauds.

Be aware of scams:

  • Never send a copy of your ID if you do not know who the owner is.
  • Do not pay a deposit or rent before you are in possession of keys.
  • If a landlord offers you to send keys by post it might be a sign of fraud.
  • Do not make payments via Western Union.

Checklist

Did you find a room? Go see it for yourself and always take someone with you. Prepare a list questions in advance, for example:

  1. Is the landlord reliable?
  2. Do you have a private entrance? 
  3. Is there heating, a kitchen, a sink, a toilet?
  4. What about the (fire) safety?
  5. Does this address allow you register at The Hague Municipality? (registration is compulsory)
  6. How long is the lease? 

 

Read the contract very carefully before you sign and make sure you understand everything. Check what is included in the rent and what is not. Additional costs are often not covered by the basic rent.

  • Gas, water, electricity
  • Subscription internet, cable
  • Municipal taxes
  • Insurance
  • Service charge (cleaning and maintenance of common areas)
