Purchasing with Renthouse Renthouse International B.V. Nederhoven 19-21 1083 AM Amsterdam Tel: +31 (0) 20 644 8751 http://www.renthouse.nl
Our Core Business lies in assisting expats in finding accommodation either for Rental or to Buy. Our office is the central point where requests for housing are met and are combined with the offers from owners and industry colleagues.
The Purchasing Process Arrange a meeting with one of our specialists to discuss your requirements for the purchase of a property. By acquiring information from a mortgage supplier, where proof of income in Holland and/or abroad would be required, we will know the budget.
For many expats the double advantage of both the 30% tax ruling and the tax deduction on interest allow for attractive possibilities. With this information we can draw up a selection of suitable properties. You will be informed daily of any new offers on the market.
Viewing and Negotiation An appointment for a viewing trip is scheduled at your convenience. Your agent will collect you from your hotel or office and you can together visit the selected properties.
Upon finding a home you like, a discussion with your agent will follow for consultation on price, state of delivery, conditional bidding etc, and he or she will negotiate on your behalf.
The Purchase Deed When successful, the purchase deed will be drawn up and signed by the seller and yourself at the notary’s office. It is custom that this deed include the conditions of obtaining a mortgage and a residence permit within three weeks of signing the document. A certified English translation will be supplied for those clients who do not speak Dutch.
The Transfer Deed On the date of delivery a second visit to the notary’s office is needed for the transfer deed and the handing over of keys. Half an hour before, an inspection will be arranged to check if the property is in the same condition as it was at the time of the purchase deed. The notary will have received the money from the bank and will pay the seller after the purchase- and mortgage deeds are signed and registered in the registry office.
