The MyKot model contract
The rules for renting student rooms are different from those of regular housing. The MyKot model contract is a type of rental agreement for student housing in Brussels and was updated in 2023 by Brik and PLE. It is available in Dutch, French and English.
The model contract is largely inspired by the Brussels statutory but optional 'student housing rental agreement'. It deviates from this at some points. By doing so, Brik and PLE want to guarantee affordability, create clarity about contracts that expire and preserve the balance between the landlord and the student-tenant.
This model contract is a reference document, but mandatory for all landlords who let a kot via MyKot. However, some provisions are not essential, so deviation is possible, but only after approval from Brik and/or PLE.
