In the Netherlands, the duration of a rental agreement for a house or apartment depends on the type of rental agreement that has been signed between the tenant and the landlord.

There are two main types of rental agreements in the Netherlands: fixed-term agreements and indefinite-term agreements.

Fixed-term agreements are for a specific period of time, usually one to two years, and specify the start and end date of the rental agreement. Once the fixed-term agreement has ended, the tenant and landlord can either choose to renew the agreement or terminate it.

Indefinite-term agreements have no specific end date and can continue for an indefinite period of time, as long as the tenant and landlord continue to agree to the terms of the agreement. In this case, the tenant has more stability and security of tenure, but the landlord can terminate the agreement under certain circumstances such as selling the property or needing it for personal use.

It's important to note that Dutch rental law provides tenants with strong protections against eviction, particularly in the case of indefinite-term agreements. However, there are specific legal procedures that must be followed in order for a landlord to terminate a rental agreement, and tenants have the right to contest an eviction in court.
