Contracts do not last longer than 1 year. If your contract expires 31 July or 31 December, you will receive an offer to apply for a new contract. The application form for new contracts will be available on My page and we will notify you in due time.

In order for you to receive a new contract, you must fulfil certain criteria, which you can read more about in our allocation rules.

If your contract expires at any other point during the year, it is your responsibility to apply for a new contract before it ends. We recommend that you do this well in advance and no later than 2 - 3 months before the contract expires.

It is not possible to transfer contracts between couples. However, cohabitants do have priority over other external applicants. Read more about this in our allocation rules.
