The Rental market in Belgium

In Belgium we have two member organisations, who’s contact information you can find in the right column. Here, as a service to anyone interested, we have also collected facts and information about the housing market in general, and rental market in particular. Most of the publications and links are based on other sources, and the authors themselves are responsible for that information.

The private rental sector in Belgium

The Flemish Tenants Platform is the umbrella rganization which supports Tenants Unions and Social Tenants groups in Flanders. Before 2014, legislation on renting was the authority of the federal Belgian government. Since 1 July 2014 the legislation on renting has become the authority of the three regions; Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia.
