Letting your property

 

At the first glance renting out a property may seem to be a easy and simple process, but in practice often proves the opposite. Paperwork that's not in order and not under legal terms, unreliable tenants, technical problems during the lease period – many of these aspects can cause you problems throughout the letting, but also, many can be avoided beforehand.

Edgar has an excelente network of contacts within the expat market, relocation agencies, multinational HR departments and private clients. He focuses on rentals to professionals and top quality tenants, often expats working for large internationals. Edgar focus is not only to find the perfect match between tenant and landlord, but create a relationship and make sure the property is continuously under eye and at a high level condition, which explains why so many of his clients have granted Property Manager Amsterdam the exclusive right to represent their properties.

Point System (to establish the rent) / Energy label

What is the rental value of your home? How many points do your property scores in the so-called point system? Also well known as the Property Valuation System, the Dutch point system is used to determine the maximum rent of your property, the total sum of points will indicate the quality of the property rental.

To each detail of the property is assigned a number of points based on a set number of criteria.

You could estimate how many points your accommodation scores by yourself, but how could you be sure that you have included all aspects? It is much better to leave the application of the point system to an expert. PropertyManager Amsterdam is happy to introduce you to a reliable expert. This will give you peace of mind that all aspects are covered.  If you would like to know how the point system works, feel free to give me a call.

Since January 1st 2008 the energy label is mandatory for homeowners who sell or rent their properties.

An energy label shows how energy efficient a home is and what could be better. The insulation of roofs, walls, floors and windows to the energy efficiency of heating are checked.

We can provide an energy label for your home by a certified consultant. The consultant will visit your home and checks the energy efficiency of it. Afterwards, he determines the energy label of the property. You will receive a report with the results and points for improvement for making your property (even) more energy efficient.

 

Costs for applying to the energy label go from € 140, exclusive of VAT. (in combination with point system € 240)
