Change= has charged the costs, for the additional services and facilities, as community costs to the residents. We did this because the law did not seem to offer the possibility to forward these costs as service costs. The model chosen at the time has been used for years in healthcare institutions and care homes and was developed in collaboration with the Woonbond.
In 2021, the subdistrict court gave a broader interpretation surrounding the concept of service costs and ruled that these costs should not be passed on as community costs, but that these costs should actually be entered as service costs. As a result, the community costs have been zeroed out and the service costs have increased by the same amount. On balance, the resident – irrespective of indexations - therefore pays the same amount of costs as at the start of the agreement. In addition, the court also recognized that the Change= Concept is a valuable innovation and addition to the housing market and ruled that Change= did not act in bad faith.
For safety and hygiene reasons, pets are not allowed at Change=.

Aside from a living space, Change= offers its residents additional services and facilities that cater for all modern-day living needs. For example, high-speed internet, digital television, workspaces, recreational and sports facilities and additional facilities that guarantee a safe living and working environment.
The Change= concept revolves around “working, living, learning, living, care and safety”. Change= is able to offer these amenities and services at low prices. As a result, a Change= resident usually saves more than €300 on basic living costs, compared to someone who rents regular social housing. High-quality homes and a socially designed living environment are offered. For young professionals, change= not only provides an answer to the ever-increasing rental prices in big cities, but it also offers a solution to the problems surrounding the ever-increasing basic living costs.
