Municipal registration system and municipal registration number regarding residential accommodation used for holiday letting purposes.
Order on the registration of residential accommodation used for holiday letting purposes
Following the entry into force of the amendment to the Dutch Housing Act 2014 [Huisvestingswet 2014] addressing the undesirable side-effects of offering residential accommodation as holiday lets (Act on residential accommodation for holiday letting purposes [Wet toeristische verhuur van woonruimte]), municipalities may apply the ban referred to in Article 23a(1) of the Dutch Housing Act 2014 in housing ordinances. In such cases, it is prohibited to offer designated residential accommodation for holiday letting purposes without indicating the registration number of that residential accommodation with each offer of that residential accommodation as a holiday let.
This Order establishes rules with which municipal registration systems must comply in order to issue registration numbers for holiday letting activities as referred to in Article 23d(2) of the Dutch Housing Act 2014. Articles 2, 3 and 4 of the Order may contain technical requirements.
Article 3(1) of the Order contains an equivalence provision. See also the explanatory notes by article regarding said provision. The article shall read as follows:
1. When applying for a registration number via the registration system, the applicant shall use DigiD, eHerkenning, a means of identification authorised or recognised by Our Minister, or a means of identification recognised by the European Union that complies with the conditions established in Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market and repealing Directive 1999/93/EC (OJ EU L 257/73, 2014).
