Housing

You want to move to Woluwe-St-Pierre? There are two possibilities:

  • Or you search on the private market: via advertisement (in the street, in journals, on the internet) or by consulting a real estate office (Sorimo, Victoire, Macnash Est, IGC, J&J Properties, Engel&Völkers etc.)
  • Or you search on the public market where rent is usually lower than on the private market.

 

You look for a place to live on the public market?

Different actors are there to help you to find a place to stay at lower cost:

 

Your place in uninhabitable or non-conform?

The Housing Code prescribes many conditions (fire safety, inhabitability etc) to rent out a house.

  • Regional Housing Inspection

In case a tenant has difficulties or problems regarding the basic conditions of safety and/or inhabitability in his place (humidity, no natural light, no heating, no hot water etc.), he can file a complaint at the Regional Housing Inspection (DGHI) (website in French or Dutch)

The DGHI will visit the venue and if necessary, dress a report ordering the owner to take measures. The owner disposes of a 12 month period to carry out the necessary works. Once this period is over, the DGHI will visit the venue again to verify if measures are taken. If this is not the case, a sanction will follow: prohibition to rent out.
