Antikraak is a service provided to combat the squatting of unused buildings. This service involves placing registered tenants in buildings that are unoccupied to protect the structure from illegal residents, or squatters. You’ll typically pay a low rental fee, which is justified by your limited legal rights within such a building. The low rental fees make this a desirable choice, so there are often waitlists to apply for this housing option. The following are the options we are aware of: Ad Hoc Beheer, Maximus BeheerDe Vastgoedbeschermer & Camelot. However, there may be more so you should search online for “Antikraak Maastricht” to find out more about all possibilities.
