Reliability check

Unfortunately, when searching on the private housing market some people will try to take advantage of the high demand for rooms in and around Utrecht by advertising fake offers. This is called scamming. It is very important that you always check for reliability. On this page you can find more information on how to recognise scammers. If you have any doubt about the reliability of an offer, you are always welcome to contact us for advice through the contact information above. Make sure to include as much information as possible about the ad, landlord or advertiser, any photos, the accommodation and address, and even the contract if you have this.

Please visit the websites of the organisations below for updated contact hours before you plan a visit
