Expats & Property

Whether you are a foreign national living and working in the Netherlands or a Dutch citizen embarking on a foreign assignment, a move to a foreign country means immersing yourself in a new culture and dealing with new rules. These are exciting times, both for you and for your family. Naturally, you want to make sure that all the necessary arrangements are made before your move and that no legal complications await you. Look no further: the lawyers of RWV are experts 4 expats!

Buying or renting property

Not surprisingly, as one of Europe’s most densely populated countries, the Netherlands has all sorts of unusual rules and regulations on housing. If you are planning to buy or rent a house, or let a property on a temporary lease, you’ll find that there are certain mandatory regulations you must obey. Sound advice before you exchange contracts can save you a lot of hassle later on.

We are familiar with the differences between national legal systems and can supply you with advice, quickly and efficiently. Our concern is to do more than simply answer your questions, but rather to provide you with the best possible solution to your predicament. We are ready to assist and advise you on matters relating to tenancy law, the purchase of property, construction law, spatial planning and disputes with neighbours.

Free, online legal consultation for expatriates 

Do you have a legal problem that you would like to discuss with a property lawyer? Why not sign up for our free, online legal consultation which we organise every last Tuesday of the month from 4-5 pm. 

You can put your questions to a property lawyer during the consultation. This takes the form of a 15-minute online meeting. If you decide at the end of this meeting that you need more time in which to discuss the matter, you can of course plan a second meeting (subject to the usual fee).
