Rent in the Netherlands
Will you soon be looking for a house in the Netherlands as an employee from abroad, therefore as an expat? Or are you living abroad but very regularly visiting family in the Netherlands? Then renting a house in the Netherlands is an interesting option. This house can serve as your permanent residence when you are in the Netherlands.
Some points to keep in mind before signing a lease between you and the landlord are:
- the duration
- the contractual destination of the leased property
- the termination
- the possible extension
The moment you rent a property, you automatically have to deal with rental agreements and, for example, property maintenance. Want to know how it works with subletting and co-tenancy? Or have you received a letter telling you to leave your home? These are all questions governed by the lease agreement and by law.
Gimbrere Legal provides support for conflicts or issues regarding rent and leasing. Our rental law attorneys will help you draft or review the lease agreement. We therefore invite you to submit your lease to us for legal screening.
