Dutch term or phrase: 4/1e, 4/2e, 330 wk, 332 hs (property abbreviations)
I have been given a list of 'Achterstanden huurafrekening' from a property management company.

Listed under complex/naam/huisnummer I have things like
[Naam] 4/1e
[Naam] 4/2e
[Naam] 4/3e
[Naam] 330 wk
[Naam] 332 hs
[Naam] 340 huis

I'm not sure if 1e, 2e etc. are flats, floors or what. I don't know what wk is, and I guess hs is huis.

I've never come across one of these before, so any help would be appreciated.

4/first, 4/second, 4/third; shop; rent subsidy; house
Explanation:
misschien is 4 een studentenhuis of portiekwoning
4/1e = eerste huurder van nummer vier enzovoort, dus 4/first, 4/second, 4/third
wk zou winkel kunnen zijn (shop)
hs zou huis kunnen zijn, hoewel afkorten inconsistentie met het niet afgekorte huis inhoudt. Mijn eerste indruk was huursubsidie (rent subsidy), maar dat is weer minder consistent met wk en huis

agree  Ariser: 4/1 could maybe also be street number 4, apartment 1 or 1st floor. Maybe best to consult client on the meaning of his acronyms.

  -> to consult the client seems wise to me; else you can't be sure

neutral  FullCircle (X): agree with Ariser; hs and huis are ground floor, normally followed by 1st, 2nd and 3rd; so I live at 170-2 but I have to walk up three flights as hs lives on the first floor ?

  -> I don't think hs and huis refer to first floor; I think they oppose winkel (and hs might be huursubsidie). The winkel / huis category are a different category than /1, /2, et cetera
