Which maintenance costs are for me and which for the landlord?

A difference is made between small, daily maintenance and major maintenance.

Minor, daily maintenance: This is maintenance that a tenant must solve himself, such as oiling hinges, unblocking the sink and repairing small defects such as painting spots on the wall or replacing lamps in your own living space.

Major maintenance: This is maintenance that the landlord must solve, such as floor and/or wall damage in the event of water leaks, broken windows and frames, painting outside, etc. The landlord may not charge you for this either.

For a complete list of repairs, see also the website of the central government (in Dutch).
