Step 3: Expert NegotiationNegotiating for a Residential home in the Netherlands can be stressfull. Obviously it is important that you feel you are paying the market conform price. Also important to take into consideration are the conditions under which you are buying the property. Take for example, negotiates regarding dissolvement clauses due to financial complications (not granted a mortgage). The real-estate agent advises you about the price, the conditions, the date of transfer and our experts will carry our negotiations on your behalf.
Step 4: Deed of PurchaseThe real-estate agent ensures that the deal he made with the seller is secured in a legal deed of purchase. You need this by law, but also to apply for a mortgage. This contract includes things such as the conditions related to you being able to obtain finance. This would allow you to cancel the purchase if you can proove the seller that you cannot obtain a mortgage to buy the property. When this condition is not inlcuded in the contract, you cannot cancel the purchase and you could end up paying a fine of 10% of the buying price.
The deed of purchase in the Amsterdam area is made by a notary, and elsewhere by the sellers’ realtor. Our realtors make sure everything is legal on your behalf.
After the deed of purchase you contact your mortgage advisor and apply for the mortage. He or she requires a copy of the signed contract and an appraisal. In order to provide a mortgage, the bank must know the value of the property. An independent appraiser will determine this and provide you with detailed report of the appraisal.

We contact a notary in you area that draws up the transfer deed and the mortgage deed ready fort he day of exchange.
