Law of 21 September 2006 on residential leases (Loi du 21 septembre 2006 sur le bail à loyer à usage d'habitation) (only in FR)

At a glance

Occasionally, a landlord and tenant may disagree on the amount of rent and/or rental charges. If the parties are unable to reach an amicable agreement, a landlord may send a request to the Rent Committee for a rent increase. Tenants, for their part, may apply to the Rent Committee for a rent reduction.

The Rent Committee meets to decide on the applications made by landlords and tenants.

In its role as arbitrator, the Rent Committee provides a framework for settling disputes amicably. It has proven to be very effective in this respect, as a large number of disputes have been resolved by settlement instead of going to court.

This procedure is open to all tenants and owners of residential property.
