Having decided that you wish to rent a property, you will want to negotiate some rental conditions. During these discussions it is important to know the law of commitment and customs in the Netherlands.
The Letter of IntentHaving decided that you wish to rent a property, you will want to negotiate some rental conditions. During these discussions it is important to know the law of commitment and customs in the Netherlands. Once the deal is made you will be asked to fill out and sign the letter of intent. This is a written confirmation of your verbal agreement. The owner will supply his details and our agency will draw up the tenancy agreement.
The Purchasing Process The name of the tenant in the contract can be a private person or it can be put in the name of the company.If the company will be the legal party involved, the officer of the company who will sign will have to be registered with the Chamber of Commerce.
The Tenancy Agreement The tenancy agreement and the General Conditions will be drawn up in the Dutch language- this constitutes the legal contract. A certified English translation will be made up to assist you.The tenancy agreement will describe the conditions of the rental such as state, time period and price. The General Conditions are the fixed part of the agreement and describe the legal commitments of both tenant and landlord. Any specific individual arrangement will be included by the addition of special clauses.
Payments For the initial payment an invoice will be made up containing the first month’s rent, the deposit and the commission with the VAT.The total amount has to be paid to our agency at least 14 days before the start of the contract.
The Check-In Once the tenancy agreement has been signed and the invoice paid, a date and time can be arranged for the check-in. The responsibility of the property will be handed over when you will receive the keys. The owner will check the inventory list with you and give you necessary information for the general maintenance and appliances. With the assistance of Renthouse a survey report will be drawn up describing the condition at the time of the check-in of your new home.To take the pressure off the moment, the VVW tenancy agreement allows a three week period to report any defects not found when the survey was made.
The Check-Out On termination of the lease, after everything belonging to you has been removedand the house handed over in the required clean and proper state, a check-out can take place. All keys are handed back to the landlord and a delivery report can be drawn up. In the delivery report is specified which damages will be repaired by which party, what possible costs are to be settled against the deposit and when and into which account the deposit will be paid back.
Renthouse will of course be present to assist you Whenever and Wherever.
