Housing corporations will again start investing more into maintenance and renovation of social rental housing, national association Aedes announced. More rental housing will also be built, NAP reports.

According to Aedes, most housing corporations are doing better. Which means that there is more financial room for maintenance and improvements, such as new central heating, insulation and double glazing. "In the coming year 30 thousand major home improvements of more than 20 thousand euros per home will be carried out", a spokesperson for Aedes said.

A survey broadcaster NOS did among tenants showed that one in five rental properties are poorly maintained. Still the respondents gave their home an average score of 6.1 out of 10. In a separate survey done by Aedes, rental homes scored an average of 7.3.
