How does it work? 

Huurteam Leiden visits the tenant to measure the house and/or rooms. The Huurteam then calculates the maximum rental price based on the legal points system. The Huurteam looks for long-delayed maintenance and other issues. The lease is also discussed. Does the Huurteam notice any problems with the property? Then the team advises the tenants on how to tackle these problems. 

When Huurteam Leiden has noticed problems, the tenant can authorize the Huurteam to tackle the problems. The Huurteam starts a process with the Huurcommissie (an organization who can give binding verdicts on rent related issues like being overcharged on rent). The Huurteam will handle the whole case with the Huurcommissie and keeps the tenant informed of the process.
