EU passport vs. non-EU passport
There are opportunities for both EU residents and expats from outside the EU. It is important, however, that you have a valid Citizen Service Number (BSN).
What costs should you take into account?
When buying a home with a mortgage, you should take into account the following costs:
- Purchase agent fees (optional)
- Advisory fees
- Notary fees
- Appraisal fees
- Transfer tax
Not all costs are always applicable, and the amount can vary per case. If it concerns a mortgage for owner-occupied property, the costs incurred for securing the financing for the primary residence are tax-deductible.
