I’m going to live together, may I sublet my room?
Living together for the first time is pretty exciting! Therefore, we offer the possibility of ‘living together as a trial’. You are allowed to sublet your room or accommodation for a period of a maximum of twelve months. Always ask permission in advance from the SSH to sublet your accommodation. Of course, we assume that living together will work out well; then you cancel your rent. However, it is also possible to go back to your 'old' accommodation after this twelve months. Note: it is not allowed to sublet your room via Airbnb or similar instances. You will risk a fine and eviction. More information on illegal subletting can be found here.
Can I live together in my room or house?
Living together in your SSH room or house is allowed in some cases. You can arrange this in two ways:
- You can ask us for permission to let someone live with you. Living together with a partner or underage child is allowed if the living space is large enough. Living with others is not allowed unless it is a sustainable relationship. A sibling may therefore not live with a tenant, but a caregiver for example does. Furthermore, the conditions are that you live in a house or apartment with two or more rooms, a studio (one-room apartment) where the living room and bedroom is larger than 30 m2 or that you live in a room larger than 40 m2, and you can show that your roommates have no objection that you live together.
- Another option is that someone becomes co-tenant. This is the case if you have a home with two or more rooms, or if you live in a studio where the living room and bedroom are larger than 30m2.
