Seminar Is your property a leasehold

12th September | Seminar Is your property a leasehold?

‘The Housing Circus of Amsterdam’

An informative seminar in an informal setting.

The Amsterdam leasehold system is being overhauled, and as a resident it is your turn to act in 2019. What opportunities does ‘perpetual leasehold’ provide for you and which threats does it pose?

As MVA Certified Expat Brokers we would like to point out the importance of this issue. After all, this concerns your (new) home. And there are some great opportunities in 2019, thanks to a favourable (but temporary!) arrangement. Is switching beneficial for you? This differs from home to home. We advise you to have this looked into properly. By doing this, you protect yourself against unnecessarily high costs.

MVA Certified Expat Brokers will share their expertise with you through short presentations and answer any questions you might have regarding:

  • The implications of buying a leasehold house
  • Your current leasehold contract
  • The new canon
  • Buy off scenarios

Entrance is free, but please RSVP, so we can make sure we have enough drinks and bites.

Walk in: 17:30h / Seminar starts: 18:00h / Drinks and bites: 18:45h
