At Square Rent we know how difficult it can be for a tenant to stand up against the landlord. Due to ignorance, uncertainty and opposition from the landlord, many tenants never appeal to their rights and when they do the result is far from optimal. Especially when a lawyer is needed, little profits remain in the end. Not to mention the investment in time and energy that all this requires from the tenant.
Square Rent is the solution for tenants who are looking for an easy and effective manner of resolving their rental issues. We are the modern version of a lawyer; the same service but cheap, transparent, accessible and with the experience we have even better.
Floris Vaneveld is the founder and driving force behind Square Rent. He studied Law at Leiden University and completed it with the Masters in Civil Law and Criminal Law. Like so many other students, he was faced with a unreasonable landlord and an unbelievably high rent for a tiny room. From there, an interest in rental law developed into a passion for helping tenants. Square Rent was not founded for profit, but out of the desire to be able to work with this passion and at the same time do something good for others. And that is where Square Rent finds its reason for being; helping tenants, no more, no less.
