Securing a home
We’ll arrange property viewings for listings you like, and after you’ve seen a home that’s right for you we’ll ask you to sign a ‘Letter of Intent’. We’ll then introduce you to the landlord and when they’ve accepted you as a tenant, we’ll prepare a rental agreement for you.
Rental agreements arranged by EHV Wonen are based on the ROZ (Council property model). We’ll provide you with a draft agreement and advise you on how to modify it to best suit your needs.
EHV Wonen will make an inspection report on the home before you move in. And, we’ll also ensure your landlord fulfills any commitments they’ve made regarding the state of the property and changes to be made to it as specified by you on the rental agreement.
You can contact us anytime during your tenancy to have us mediate between you and your landlord should any issues arise. We’ll always do our best to ensure a positive outcome is reached for both parties. And, our mediation service is free for as long as is reasonably possible during a dispute.
All you pay for our services is a one-time brokerage fee. This fee is equivalent to one-month’s rent of the property plus 21% VAT. And, you only pay when you’ve secured a home.
The brokerage fee, which includes the preparation of the rental agreement (normally amounting to € 300, + 21% VAT), also covers the inspection report, key transfer and the use of any of our other services for the entire rental period, until your departure from the property. Please note that any additional monthly property/building service charges, or similar, will also be included in the calculation of our brokerage fee. These and all our service conditions can be read on our registration form <download form link>.
