That depends on the type of accommodation. The Dutch Building Decree sets out requirements that have to be met, which vary according to how the accommodation is used. There is a ‘lodging function’ and a ‘residential function’. The lodging function applies to a holiday home and the residential function applies to a house in a residential area.
Discuss these requirements with your landlord or ask the municipality where you are living. The accommodation is not allowed to pose any risk to your health. The accommodation has to meet the requirements for fire safety in the Netherlands, as set by law.
Your landlord may need a landlord permit to rent the accommodation to you. If so, rules may apply when it comes to having your own lockable room. Rules may then also apply when it comes to having a facility for storing and preparing food, a laundry room and a shower room. If your landlord does not follow these rules, you can report this to the municipality in which you live. The municipality will be able to help you.
If your employer deducts your rent from your minimum wage, then there are minimum requirements that apply to your accommodation. Your accommodation must have at least 1 shower and 1 toilet per eight residents. You must also be able to use a fridge. Read about these requirements for your accommodation, which are set out in the SNF (Information for residents), in Dutch, English, Polish, German, French, Spanish, Romanian and Bulgarian.
