Experience of Lin with our mortgage and buying serice
The advisor is very professional and very efficient. We have met 3 agents before him and we’re not so happy about them, a friend of ours recommended him to us. Since then it has been a very pleasant and smooth journey. He is also very proactive in helping us to find a good house. In the end, it saved us money and time. Highly recommended. | Read the review on

Expat mortgage the Netherlands

As  experts in expat mortgages and Dutchmen, we all know that the Dutch property landscape is one of the strangest in the world. Most Dutchmen have a strong desire to own their own home. About 60% of the people posses their own home. Then there is the fiscal phenomenon ‘hypotheekrenteaftrek’ (tax deductible interest).

Mortgage rate

The mortgage rate operated by the bank depends on:

  • The period for which the interest rate is fixed. In this time, how long the time the rate is fixed the higher the interest rate is. It’s also to choose for a mortgage without a fixed rate;
  • The ratio between the value under foreclosure and the amount of the mortgage loan. The interest margin required by the bank to cover the risk increases in keeping with the percentage of that ratio.

During the crisis certain parts of the country are stagnating in terms of pricing, other areas have seen prices fall. There is still a shortage of housing in most of the large cities such as Amsterdam or The Hague. For some people it’s about securing a future place to live whilst prices are stable, for others it’s a good investment or it’s about buying property in a nation where they understand the process and know that a property owner’s rights are strongly upheld by law.

Expat mortgages special solutions

Expat mortgage process

If you’re interested in our services, we charge you fixed fees for our services. Our first meeting is always free of charge an can take place at your home or workplace, also in the evening hours. We work independent and nationwide and have offices in Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Breda (Zevenbergen). Our real estate agents can assist you by buying property in the Netherlands. You can request a meeting by sharing your details below, or you may reach us at 0031-168-327702.

We also work independent from financial providers and our financial advisors provide you with personal tailored mortgage advice.

During our first meeting we will ask you to inform us about the following information :

  • Contact information;
  • Basic details about the property requiring finance including your required mortgage amount and amount of deposit;
  • A copy of your passport and a utility bill for your main residence;
  • Bank statements of the last three months of the bank account where your salary is paid;
  • The most recent 3 months’ paychecks, alternatively, an employer’s confirmation of income (werkgeversverklaring) or copies of your accounts from a verifiable accountancy firm if you’re self-employed.

As you can imagine, each application is then assessed on its personal merit, and those who lend to expats are aware that it’s not always straightforward to provide seemingly the most basic of information.

Don’t be put off, there is finance available, and the Dutch property market can make a safe bet when approached in a cautious and calculating manner.

How will the mortgage interest in the Netherlands develop in 2024?

Is it wise to extend or adjust your mortgage now, because of the low interest rates? Or is it better to wait?


Finance with National Mortgage Guarantee (in Dutch NHG)

The Dutch National Mortgage Guarantee (NHG) scheme is unique in Europe. It helps you take out a mortgage that is guaranteed by the Dutch government and gives you an interest discount. This discount can be up to 0,5%!

And if you do run into problems meeting your mortgage payments due to circumstances beyond your control, the National Mortgage Guarantee may provide a safety net for you and your mortgage lender.

When you take out an NHG-backed mortgage, you know for sure that your mortgage matches your income. That’s because your mortgage meets the criteria for responsible lending and borrowing set by the National Institute for Family Finance in the Netherlands (NIBUD). So you know for sure that you’re not borrowing more than you can afford. After making the monthly mortgage payment you’ll still have money left for other expenses like groceries, insurance and your savings account.

Safety net if you can no longer pay your mortgage

If you have an NHG-backed mortgage and can no longer pay your mortgage due to specific circumstances beyond your control, you and your mortgage lender can turn to us for support.

The specific circumstances under which NHG comes into operation are:

  • if you lose your job;
  • if your relationship ends;
  • if you become disabled for work;
  • if your partner dies.

The National Mortgage Guarantee is referred to in Dutch as ‘NHG’ or ‘Nationale Hypotheek Garantie’ (NHG). The maximum mortgage with NHG is € 435.000. Other conditions of this program.
