The characteristic townhouses are all part of private family-property since some generations ; also roomrenting has a long history in our family, now these days we don't share the facilites with the tenants but we preserve it like as we are still live here.
Our tenant profile is mostly working people / master and doctorate and researchers/Post-Docs from WUR and
research institutes. Our policy is longterm leasecontracts of 12 months to avoid room-hoppers so to establish/keep a bond of trust among the tenants in the house.
