mortgage application declinedJust bought your dream house in the Netherlands and now your mortgage application is declined? What is the next step to turn this rejection into approval? Read this article to understand why your application is rejected and what you can do to increase your chance of getting your mortgage application approved.

No problem, we have good experiences with arranging a mortgage. Based on a second opinion, we can quickly inform you about the possibilities.

Why has your mortgage application been rejected?

It is good to know the reason for rejection. It sounds strange, but often this information is relevant to the right solution. A ground for rejection at one bank need not necessarily be the same at other banks. And to make it sound stranger; Sometimes we receive approval on the mortgage application from the same lender where you received a rejection.

It is also good to know that we are not afraid of a special or difficult situation. However, you must realize that the rejection in a mortgage application often comes at a (too) late time in the application process. Stress and consultation with the seller, if you buy a house, are therefore inevitable our experience.

This allows us to unburden you when we see opportunities for a positive mortgage application. If it has to be done quickly you can take a so-called emergency mortgage advice. Then there is clarity about the feasibility within 1 working day. We understand that you want to be clear as quickly as possible, also because you have made agreements with the seller. This uncertainty can also cause them concern.

Reasons why a bank declines your mortgage application

  1. You have a poor credit history and BKR coding, in the Netherlands, this is monitored by the BKR organization.

Bezit u de rechten op een merk of muziek en wenst u daarmee een hypotheek af te sluiten, dan behoort dit zeker tot de mogelijkheden. We spreken dan ook wel over royalties (ook vaak als royalty’s geschreven) en een hypotheek afsluiten is dan mogelijk. Belangrijk is om aan te tonen dat de inkomsten duurzaam zijn.

Inkomsten uit intellectueel eigendom

Royalties ontstaan doordat anderen een vergoeding betalen voor uw geestelijk eigendom. Het begrip royalties wordt ook aangeduid als auteursrechtvergoeding of licentievergoeding. Alle begrippen komen op hetzelfde neer.

Het is namelijk een vergoeding voor gebruik van werk waarvan iemand anders eigenaar is, of althans de rechten toe bezit. Er zijn diverse soorten vergoedingen voor allerlei soorten gebruik van deze rechten. Daar gaat dit artikel niet over.

Hypotheek en royalties

Een hypotheekverstrekker vindt het belangrijk dat er een duurzame bron van inkomen is vanuit uw intellectueel eigendom. Kortom, heeft u net een goed boek geschreven en heeft u goede verwachtingen van de verkoop dan is dat te vroeg om een hypotheekaanvraag op te baseren. Heeft dit boek reeds een goed trackrecord of heeft u als auteur aantoonbaar langjarige inkomsten dan is de zogeheten ‘bestendigheid’ aan te tonen.

Royalties en belastingheffing

U kunt op diverse manieren de rechten beheren en daarover belasting verschuldigd zijn. Dat is voor een hypotheekaanvraag minder van belang. Mocht u de rechten beheren op persoonlijke titel dan kan het mogelijk zijn dat de inkomsten in box 1 of box 3 vallen. Uiteindelijk is de belastingheffing van belang voor het kunnen bepalen van uw besteedbaar inkomen. En het besteedbaar inkomen is ook relevant voor het kunnen bepalen van de maximale hoogte van uw hypotheek.

De rechten op intellectueel eigendom kunnen ook bezit zijn van een rechtspersoon zoals een BV. Dan dient naast de omzet ook rekening te worden gehouden met de kosten van het beheer van de BV en royalties. Bijvoorbeeld bij publishing (bijvoorbeeld het uitgeven van muziek) zijn meerdere partijen betrokken zoals het management van een artiest, liedtekstschrijver en muziekuitgeverij.

Maatwerk hypotheek

Beschikt u over royalties en wenst u een hypotheek aan te vragen dan kunnen wij u goed van dienst zijn. Een grote groep opdrachtgevers van ons kantoor zijn vrije beroepsbeoefenaren. Wij kunnen samen met u beoordelen wat de mogelijkheden voor een hypotheekaanvraag zijn.

In het Nederlandse systeem is een tijdelijke arbeidsovereenkomst de norm voor promovendi. Hier gaat de rode loper meestal niet voor uit bij de gemiddelde geldverstrekker. Met de juiste onderbouwing en ondersteuning is het wel vaak mogelijk tijdens uw PhD een hypotheek af te sluiten.

Promovendus en hypotheek afsluiten

Geldverstrekkers zijn dol op zekerheden en vaste arbeidscontracten. Men wenst graag een zogeheten bestendig inkomen vast te stellen. De eenvoudigste methode om hieraan tegemoet te komen is om te beschikken over een vast contract.

Dat conflicteert met de gangbare praktijk voor u als promovendus. Tijdens uw promotieonderzoek heeft u namelijk de beschikking over een tijdelijk contract. Dit betekent niet automatisch dat uw hypotheekaanvraag risicovol is. Ons werk begint om duidelijk te maken richting een geldverstrekker wat uw toekomstperspectief is.

Elementen die hierbij van belang kunnen zijn:

  • Wat is uw toekomstperspectief en baankans op de arbeidsmarkt;
  • Hoe lang duurt uw promotieonderzoek;
  • Is er al zicht op een baan of krijgt u een intentieverklaring.

Relatieve onbekendheid fenomeen promovendi

Onbekend maakt onbemind is een bekend adagium. Geldverstrekkers zijn vaak onbekend met de specifieke kenmerken van een promovendus. Aan ons de taak om uw situatie zo goed en duidelijk mogelijk naar voren te brengen. Dit doen wij met veel ervaring en overredingskracht. Immers met uw opleidingsniveau heeft u een meer dan prima profiel om in aanmerking te komen voor een hypotheek is onze overtuiging.

Specifiek beleid PhD banken

Sommige banken hebben in hun acceptatiegidsen specifiek beleid ontwikkeld ten aanzien van promovendi. Wij zijn bekend met deze bepalingen en voorwaarden. Bij het adviseren over hypotheken kunnen wij rekening houden met uw specifieke situatie en de acceptatiecriteria. Ook zijn er banken die maatwerk bieden op grond van een grondige en rekenkundig juiste onderbouwing.

Tijdens uw PhD een hypotheek afsluiten als promovendus is dus mogelijk met een juiste voorbereiding. Goed om te weten is dat wij ruime ervaring hebben met het helpen van promovendi bij het afsluiten van een hypotheek. Voor artsen in opleiding is er specifiek beleid.

Er zijn zelfs banken die simpelweg uitgaan van uw huidige inkomen als blijkt dat u werkzaam bent als promovendus of wetenschappelijk onderzoeker. Dan zijn er geen drie jaaropgaves nodig, maar kan worden gefinancierd op basis van het huidige actuele inkomen. We hebben dan uw arbeidsovereenkomst of aanstellingsovereenkomst nodig in combinatie met een loonstrook. Mocht u een aanbod tot een hypotheek van een bank krijgen dan is de rente niet hoger dan in een reguliere situatie. Prettig om te weten.

Tijdelijk contract struikelblok

Zoals eerder al benoemd is het verkrijgen van een hypotheek ook mogelijk met een tijdelijk contract. Zelfs met NHG is het mogelijk om een hypotheek aan te vragen. Dan dient u minimaal drie jaaropgaves te kunnen overleggen. Een gemiddeld promotieonderzoek duurt circa vier tot vijf jaar. Ook mag u jaaropgaves gebruiken van werkgevers die losstaan van uw promotieonderzoek. De meest eenvoudige manier om het gemiddelde arbeidsinkomen aan te tonen is door gebruik te maken van het UWV-verzekeringsbericht.

De vuistregel dat u minimaal drie jaaropgaves dient te hebben is geen harde eis. Het hangt dus sterk van de geldverstrekker af en diens acceptatiebeleid. De ene bank legt de klemtoon op inkomen uit het verleden terwijl er ook partijen zijn die juist vertrekken vanuit het huidige inkomen. Kortom tijdens uw PhD een hypotheek afsluiten hoeft niet onnodig complex te zijn.

top 10 mortgage advisor questions netherlandsFree consultation?

To help you in this process of finding the best mortgage solution you can read the most frequent questions for mortgage advisors our company handles.

We also work for expats and foreigners finding the best mortgage in the Netherlands. Only comparing interest rates in today’s world seems simple. But do you service your car yourself, or do you hire a trained mechanic? When it comes to finding the best mortgage many believe ‘servicing’ on their own fits best.

We believe choosing one of the most important financial decisions a person makes in their life, makes sense to speak to a professional mortgage advisor. Top 10 questions mortgage advisors the Netherlands:

What is the difference between working with a bank directly and working with an independent mortgage advisor?

A bank works directly with you and only offers mortgage products from the bank itself. An independent mortgage advisor provides a complete range of mortgages of the entire market. However, your mortgage advisor also arranges mortgages from a selection of preferred lenders.

In the Dutch system, the mortgage advisor is obliged to inform you about their status. Whether they are part of a bank or have a selection of mortgage lenders and products.

In our case, we are an independent company and advise mortgages from approximately 40 lenders. We do not accept fees from lenders and work exclusively on the principle of neutrality and independence. We work nationwide.

Can I get pre-qualified for a mortgage?

The system for mortgages in the Netherlands is not designed for pre-qualification. However, our mortgage advisors can perform a quick scan regarding your mortgage application. In this part of the process, you provide us with the following information: your name, current address, date of birth, income and assets, and other property owned.

We can also authorize a credit check, which is the only outside source of information that is checked at this point in the process.

With this information, you are better prepared to buy a house. If you plan viewings for houses you do not have to provide this information with the real estate broker.

Which is better—an adjustable-rate mortgage or a fixed rate mortgage?

This depends on your budget and how long you think you’re going to live there. If you knew you were going to move within five years, you might want to take an adjustable interest rate. On the other hand, you might not.

Five years goes by quickly. The market could change and you might be in a different financial situation.

Can I take cash out when I refinance?

If it is your primary residence, most lenders will allow you to take cash out (subject to your bank’s approval) for any reason, such as renovation, debt consolidation, college tuition, or the purchase of a second home.

Lending guidelines and rates will differ from lender to lender.

How much are closing costs?

In the Netherlands for buying an existing house, you need to calculate approximately 5% of closing costs.

With this calculator you will have a good impression of the real closing costs for buying a house in the Netherlands.

Am I allowed to make partial repayments of capital or increase my monthly repayments if I wish to repay the mortgage earlier?

Ask what conditions will apply if you wish to pay off part of the mortgage or accelerate your repayments.

Are there any penalties for repaying the mortgage early?

That depends on several factors. If the interest rate of your current contract is higher then the market interest rate there is a good chance you have to pay a penalty. In most cases, this penalty is tax deductible.

Will you be able to assist me in the future?

It is very likely that you will want to assess the performance of your mortgage every few years. It may be that the amount you are paying back increases down the line, or it could transpire that, since taking out your initial mortgage, a better option has become available. Your mortgage will continue to play a significant role in your finances for decades, so setting up regular appointments with a trusted professional could benefit you greatly.

Is there an arrangement fee to pay and if so will I get this back if my application does not proceed?

We provide your mortgage advise on no cure no pay base. We only charge you the fee on the same moment as your mortgage will be provided by the lender.

mortgage takeover after divorceMortgage takeover after divorce – How does it work?

Divorce ensures that many things need to be arranged. Especially when you own a house together. This house is often also charged with a mortgage. First, agreements must be made about the plans for the house. Are you staying in the house and buying out your ex-partner or vice versa? Or you decide together to sell the property and repay the mortgage.

At the moment that you or your partner solely own the house and you are not married in community of property, the house does not have to be divided. If you have made prenuptial agreements then special arrangements can be made regarding the mortgage and the home.

Mortgage takeover after divorce

This sounds easier than done. There is a lot to look at before a mortgage can be taken over or be transferred to one name. It is also possible that a new partner wants to sign into the mortgage deed. This is then called ‘jointly binding’.

For example, you first need to make agreements and secure them in a divorce agreement. The mortgage provider can assess your application on the basis of this document, among other things.

Until the mortgage has been taken over or a new mortgage is contracted, you and your partner remain jointly liable for the mortgage. You both remain liable for the mortgage provider or bank if the monthly payments are no longer paid. It does not matter whether you are still living in the house. The relocated partner who still appears in the mortgage agreement remains liable.

Home acquisition debt and divorce

Are you both owner of the house and have you taken out a mortgage for the house then you also have each right to half of the so-called home acquisition debt. This is a fiscal concept. This is the amount of the mortgage on which you may deduct mortgage interest if you meet the conditions.

This home acquisition debt is personal and not transferable. Why this is relevant we will try to clarify with an example.

Karin and Adam together bought a home in 2004 with a mortgage and home acquisition debt of € 250,000. This mortgage is fully redemption-free. Karin would like to take over the home and mortgage. For the sake of convenience, we make the assumption that there is no surplus value. Karin is allowed to continue part of the redemption allowance. They may only have a 50% interest-only mortgage and for the other 50% they must choose an annuity mortgage or a linear mortgage.

The reason for this is that on 1 January 2013 the loan rules for mortgages have been tightened up. This was part of a package of government cuts. New buyers must do as much as possible on repaying a mortgage and also pay it off on the basis of minimal annuities. Since Karin ‘buys’ a part of the house in the example, she also has to deal with these new loan rules. That is if she wishes to qualify for the interest deduction.

Your bank does not agree with taking over the mortgage

If you rely on this outcome, you should sell the property or, together with your former partner, decide to leave the situation as it is. Better you can try to make these agreements during the separation procedure. After all, these scenarios can be foreseen or conceived and then it is clear to everyone what the final agreements are.

When you or your ex-partner remain in the mortgage deed, this may cause problems when buying the next home or applying for a loan. You will also remain responsible and severally liable for repayment of this mortgage in such a situation.

Do you want a second opinion from another lender, we can help you with that. Then make an appointment or call us directly.

What documents are needed to take over the mortgage after my divorce?

If you choose to take over the existing mortgage, an extensive set of documents is required. In most cases, the divorce creates a tighter disposable income. This has an effect on the maximum mortgage. In order to have a good chance to take over the existing mortgage, it is important that you think about the affordability of your expenses yourself.

To give this hand and foot, you can draw up personal budget advice on the Nibud website. This gives you a good impression of the actual expenses and disposable income.

The following documents are often necessary to collect:

  • Divorce Agreement;
  • Agreements concerning the distribution of assets linked to the mortgage;
  • Annual statement and/or employer’s declaration of income;
  • Statement and quotation of the current mortgage.

Take over a mortgage with NHG after divorce

If you have taken out a mortgage with a National Mortgage Guarantee at the time, specific rules apply.

The attached process card shows the procedure for converting your mortgage with NHG into a single name or when the sale of the property is the order.

bkr coding mortgageIs your mortgage application declined because of a BKR coding? First of all: don’t panic. We can help you increase your chances for a mortgage application. Most of the time this rejection comes at a really inconvenient moment. Especially when you are in the process of buying a house.

What is BKR?

If you have obtained for credit or a mortgage, the information is registered with BKR. At that moment the loan provider keeps the database from BKR updated with your payment behavior. You will be coded if you have caught up overdue payments for a number of months. Each credit type has a different period. For example, for mortgages, this period is 3 months.

If you have caught up overdue payments, a rehabilitation code will be noted in your BKR overview. This is called a “herstelmelding” (rehabilitation). This information will remain visible for a period of 5 years after the contract ends.

Mortgage declined because of a BKR code

A lot of mortgage providers decline a mortgage application if you have a BKR-code. Also, some lenders prefer to lend to a specific demographic. As independent mortgage advisers, we have experience of the market and can help you obtain a mortgage. We will be aware of what different lenders require before offering you a mortgage, and we will speak to the lender on your behalf.

We can make a scan about the possibilities of obtaining for a mortgage if you provide us information regarding your income and the property you want to buy.

Administration errors BKR coding

Lenders aren’t perfect. Some of them put the details from your application into a computer so you might have failed because of a mistake or error on your BKR-file. If you want to know what is registered you can easily download your BKR-file. For a mortgage application, we also need a copy of this BKR report.

Each mortgage application is logged in your BKR-file. Repeatedly applying for a mortgage makes it look like you have problems, so try to avoid this situation. We prepare your mortgage application and will search for a solution.

When is it possible to apply for a mortgage?

If you have a BKR-code it is necessary that you meet the following standards:

  • there is a rehabilitation code (H-erstelcode) visible on your BKR overview;
  • the loan has an end date;
  • your current situation is stable and steady.

Het wordt steeds eenvoudiger om een hypotheekaanvraag te doen. Door middel van het aanleveren van een UWV verzekeringsbericht kunt u uw werkgeversverklaring overslaan. Dit geldt niet voor alle hypotheekaanvragen, in dit artikel zullen we uitleg geven over de (on-)mogelijkheden.

Het project Handig! is een initiatief van een aantal organisaties met als bedoeling om hypotheekaanvragen simpeler te maken. Ook wordt zoveel mogelijk gebruikgemaakt van ‘broninformatie’.

Hoe kan ik dit verzekeringsbericht aanvragen?

Dat is relatief simpel en gratis via MijnUWV te doen in combinatie met uw DigiD en de volgende stappen:

  • Nadat u bent ingelogd kiest u voor ‘persoonlijke gegevens’;
  • Vervolgens kiest u voor de knop ‘arbeidverleden’ en daarna klikt u op ‘controleren’;
  • Daarna kiest u voor ‘download printversie’ en laat alles vinkjes aan staan;
  • Het document kunt u dan hierna opslaan en uploaden via ons klantenportaal.

Op 15 mei 2019 heeft het UWV het beveiligingsniveau verhoogd om te kunnen inloggen. Er is nu sprake van tweetrapsverificatie. Hierdoor dient u te beschikken over de DigiD app of sms-controle van DigiD. Deze dienst dient eerst geactiveerd te zijn. De verwerking hiervan kost bij DigiD enkele werkdagen.

Voor wie is dit bericht geschikt?

Iedereen die een hypotheek wil aanvragen en nu in loondienst is kan dit bericht gebruiken. Ook iemand die de laatste twaalf maanden in loondienst is geweest kan gebruikmaken van het verzekeringsbericht.

Een aanvullende eis is dat u binnen tien jaar niet met pensioen gaat. Dan dient op een andere wijze uw inkomen te worden vastgesteld.

Voldoet u niet aan deze criteria dan dient uw inkomen op de ouderwetse manier vastgesteld te worden. Ook dat is geen probleem voor ons.

Welke banken accepteren een UWV verzekeringsbericht?

Op dit moment zijn het een handvol banken die in plaats van een werkgeversverklaring ook het UWV verzekeringsbericht hanteren om uw inkomen te bepalen. De volgende banken doen mee:

  • ABN Amro;
  • ING Bank;
  • Rabobank;
  • Florius.

Dit zijn relatief weinig banken, maar u dient zich voor te stellen dat ze qua marktaandeel bijna de helft van alle hypotheken verstrekken. Kortom, voor veel hypotheekaanvragen is deze stap in efficiency positief te noemen.

Wat zijn de voordelen van dit document?

Opgesomd zijn de volgende voordelen van toepassing:

  • Het proces van uw hypotheekaanvraag verloopt sneller en nauwkeuriger;
  • Uw variabel inkomen kan nu volledig worden opgenomen in het toetsinkomen;
  • Flexwerkers met een opeenvolgend arbeidsverleden kunnen zonder vast contract sneller in aanmerking komen voor een hypotheek;
  • U hoeft geen werkgeversverklaring meer op te vragen bij uw werkgever;
  • Ook een hypotheek in combinatie met NHG valt op deze wijze aan te vragen.
  • Ook voor een spoedhypotheek is dit verzekeringsbericht geschikt.

Hypotheek binnen de proeftijd

Door het toepassen van het UWV-verzekeringsbericht kunt u ook een hypotheek aanvragen binnen de proeftijd van uw nieuwe baan. Dit scheelt stress bij het regelen van de hypotheek voor het kopen van een huis bijvoorbeeld.

Zijn er ook nadelen aan het gebruik van dit document?

Zeker, er kleven ook een paar nadelen aan het gebruik van dit verzekeringsbericht:

  • Omdat gerekend wordt met het gemiddelde inkomen van de afgelopen periode worden recente loonstijgingen niet volledig meegenomen;
  • Een toekomstige inkomensstijging valt ook niet mee te nemen in deze berekeningswijze;
  • Hoewel het UWV digitaal werkt, kunnen er ook fouten in het inkomen zitten. Het kost tijd om dit te laten herstellen;
  • Nog niet alle geldverstrekkers accepteren dit document als bewijs van inkomen.

afwijzing verzoek hoofdelijk ontslagAfwijzing verzoek hoofdelijk ontslag ontvangen? Erg vervelend. Alleen u hoeft niet bij de pakken neer te gaan zitten. Met een kosteloze quickscan kunnen we zien of de afwijzing terecht is.

Waarom zou een afwijzing onterecht zijn?

De redenen hiervoor kunnen legio zijn. Vaak zien wij dat een onterechte afwijzing gebaseerd is op een gebrek aan goede wil. Een geldverstrekker heeft namelijk diverse instrumenten tot haar beschikking om de hypotheek bijvoorbeeld passend te krijgen conform de leennormen. Er gelden voor het behoud van een woning en dus hypotheek ruimere regels ten opzichte van het verstrekken van een compleet nieuwe hypotheek. Deze tools dienen dan wel actief te worden voorgelegd door uw hypotheekadviseur.

De overheid en banken hebben in een gezamenlijke overeenkomst afgesproken woningbehoud de voorkeur te geven ten opzichte van verkoop van de woning. Het honoreren van een verzoek tot hoofdelijk ontslag zou dan ook het doel kunnen zijn. U dient uiteraard wel de lasten van de hypotheek en andere verplichtingen te kunnen dragen. Er mag geen financieel ongezonde situatie ontstaan. Logisch.

Vorig jaar heeft bijvoorbeeld geldverstrekker Obvion een tik op de vingers gekregen van klachteninstituut Kifid vanwege het onterecht weigeren tot hoofdelijk ontslag. Soms is een klachtenprocedure nodig om uw doel te bereiken, alleen in de meeste gevallen is dat niet nodig en komen we er met de geldverstrekker zelf uit.

Wat betekent dit concreet voor mij?

Wij kunnen voor u een second opinion opstellen en toetsen of de afwijzing terecht is. Wij starten compleet blanco en staan aan uw zijde. Pas nadat wij tot de conclusie komen dat de afwijzing onterecht is zullen wij u een offerte sturen voor onze werkzaamheden. Daarbij werken wij op basis van no cure no pay.

Als u het niet eens bent met de beslissing van de geldverstrekker tot de afwijzing verzoek hoofdelijk ontslag kunt u ons een set documenten sturen. Wij zullen dan binnen 1 werkdag na ontvangst van het complete dossier een beoordeling maken van de haalbaarheid van uw verzoek. De documenten die wij in ieder geval nodig hebben zijn de volgende:

  • kopie van het dossier dat u hebt gebruikt bij de aanvraag tot verzoek hoofdelijk ontslag;
  • uitleg waarom u zelf van mening bent dat de afwijzing onterecht is;
  • afspraken die u met uw ex-partner heeft gemaakt door middel van een echtscheidingsconvenant of vaststellingsovereenkomst.

In welke situaties zijn wij succesvol geweest?

Op het moment dat uw inkomen niet volledig wordt meegeteld bijvoorbeeld. Er kan sprake zijn van een deel van uw inkomen dat niet wordt meegenomen in het toetsinkomen, om allerlei redenen. Bijvoorbeeld van een ondernemer die een minderheidsbelang heeft. Dan kan een geldverstrekker zich op het standpunt stellen dat de zogeheten overwinst niet kan worden gebruikt. In dergelijke situaties kunnen wij goed onderbouwen dat er bijvoorbeeld sprake van een bestendig inkomen is.

In een andere situatie had iemand een woning in de verhuur. De bank in kwestie nam wel de volledige hypotheeklasten mee van deze verhuurde woning in de toetsing alleen niet de huurinkomsten. Hier hebben wij betoogd dat we begrip hadden voor de huurinkomsten achterwege laten, maar dan ook de bijbehorende lasten. Op deze denkwijze kan er namelijk altijd op een afwijzing worden gestuurd.

Kern van onze aanpak is dat wij een compleet dossier voor u opbouwen en de acceptant volledig inzicht in de toekomst en het verleden geven. Bovenal hebben wij geleerd in ons werk ‘don’t take no for an answer’. Natuurlijk kan een afwijzing terecht zijn, en als dat zo is zullen wij u dat eerlijk aangeven.

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.

How will the mortgage interest in the Netherlands develop in 2018?

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

Will interest rates remain low?

You should benefit as much as possible from low mortgage rates. But how long can you extend your current mortgage and enjoy a low monthly amount? Have you recently bought a house, then you have already benefited considerably from the low mortgage rates. But if your mortgage has been running for ten or twenty years, it is a different story.

How long does this interest rate last?

If we knew it, we would tell you right away of course. Still, we can assume that interest rates will remain low because the European Central Bank runs a stimulation program called QE which provides a lot of money in the economy. This program quits by the end of 2019. Because the economy is growing considerably, the expectation is that interest will only start to rise from the summer of 2019. The mortgage rates will follow the financial markets.

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 € 290.000. Other conditions of this program.

The housing market in The Hague

The housing market is going through extraordinary times in The Hague. A house with a garden is becoming scarce and the prices are going through the roof. Without guidance is it very hard to get hold of a house in the capital city of the Netherlands.

The Hague, with its beautiful Binnenhof and beach of Scheveningen, has a lasting appeal on a large group of people. Expats often choose to live in The Hague compared to other cities because of its favorable establishment environment.

There are some typical characteristics worth noticing in the housing market of The Hague:

  • Some of the ground belongs to the municipality and you have it on a long lease. In short, this means you pay a reimbursement to the local authorities;
  • A lot of the apartments have an owners’ association;
  • There is a unique mannerism to bid on a house in The Hague.

Mortgage advice on making an offer with or without ‘subject to finance’ in The Hague

Any person currently looking for a home to buy in The Hague knows that offers are frequently made without a resolutive condition. Also known as a finance clause. This clause gives you time to organize a mortgage for your new house.

Making an offer without this condition can cause a big risk. Because what happens if the bank refuses your mortgage application?

As this happens, you may then have to pay 10% of the purchase price as a penalty and the real cost of damage. Are you willing to take this risk? We can explain to you alternative solutions to have the best bid and buying without this expensive risk.

Also, we can help you with have a sort of pre-approval mortgage application.

Code of conduct for mortgage loans

Lending institutions such as banks and other mortgage providers are bound by a code of conduct in relation to mortgages. In Dutch this code of conduct is known as Gedragscode Hypothecaire Financiering. The current version of the governments Code of Conduct for mortgage loans came into effect in 2011.  The code of conduct applies to mortgages on primary residences only.

Should I keep renting or buy a property in the Netherlands?

In the five years following on the end of the financial crisis, property prices in the Netherlands plummeted more than fifteen percent and left many homebuyers with mortgages that exceeded the value of their Dutch property. However, the Dutch housing market upswing that started mid-2013 is predicted to continue through 2018, as the Dutch economy and consumer confidence improve and interest rates remain at a historical low point.

These conditions have turned the Dutch housing market into a buyer’s market – particularly for first-time homebuyers – and increased local and foreign investment is pushing property prices back up again.

In contrast, rental prices remained relatively stable over the same period, and are showing significant growth as the economy recovers; in 2015, for example, housing experts said rental prices doubled in the main cities of Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, Rotterdam, and Groningen.

Rental housing platform Pararius recorded the average rental price in the Netherlands in 2016 at around € 1,365 a month but in Amsterdam, the average was € 2,200 per month, while in Rotterdam the average was around € 1,200 and in The Hague € 1,500. One main cause is the short rental supply in the private sector, which accounts for only some 5 percent of total housing stock, with the remaining rental stock classified under the social housing sector, which has long waiting lists and restricted to those on high salaries. Read more about renting in the Netherlands.

In comparison, as a result of low interest rates, in some cases, it is possible to secure a mortgage lower than the average rental prices. However, costs associated with buying property in the Netherlands total around 4-5 percent of the purchase price, thus buying Dutch property is more suitable for long-term investments, at least a minimum of five years. Based on the current price increase on the Dutch housing market it goes faster.

Can I get a mortgage in the Netherlands?

Of course! There are no legal restrictions for non-Dutch citizens buying Dutch property or applying for a Dutch mortgage. However, if you are relatively new to a job or area, self-employed, on a low income or of a non-EU nationality, these may result in stricter lending criteria and can become a bumpy road. This can result in a lower maximum Loan To Value (LTV). This is the ratio between the value of the house and the mortgage expressed in a percentage.

Each bank has different requirements, but in general, if you are from a country within the EU it helps a lot to apply for a mortgage. They will probably expect you to have a valid passport, have lived in the Netherlands for at least six months, have a citizen service number (BSN) and have permanent employment in the Netherlands.

It also depends on the status of your residence card. We can inform you during a personal meeting about the possibilities.

You may need to pay a deposit and be limited to a maximum mortgage of 90 percent of the property value, although the Dutch bank does allow mortgages of the full value of a property.

Regardless of nationality, if you are employed you will need to show proof of income and a statement from your employer (werkgeversverklaring) with details of your contract and salary. Temporary workers and university researchers/Ph.D. students will need statements from their employers/universities confirming their position. Self-employed people need to supply the last three years’ income tax returns and accounts.

As from 1 January 2013 the rules for mortgage loans are changed

If you live in a house that you own, you have an owner-occupied home. If you are a qualifying non-resident taxpayer, you may deduct the interest on your mortgage or loan for this house.

Did you buy an owner-occupied home after 1 January 2013? Or did you increase your mortgage or loan after 1 January 2013? Or is your mortgage or loan higher now than in 2012, because you bought a more expensive house? In that case, you will be dealing with new rules for the deduction of your (mortgage) interest.

On 1 January 2013, the rules on the deduction of interest on the home acquisition debt (mortgage interest deduction) were changed. For any new loans, you may only deduct the interest if you repay the loan in monthly installments. If you already had a home acquisition debt before 1 January 2013, you may continue deducting the interest on this debt and you are not obliged to repay.

When are you obliged to repay?

In order to be allowed to deduct the interest, you are obliged to repay the loan in the following situations:

  • You take out a mortgage or loan for the first time;
  • You increase your existing mortgage or loan, for example for a refurbishment;
  • If you already had a home acquisition debt on 31 December 2012, the repayment obligation will only apply to the additional amount you borrow;
  • You must repay the loan on an annuity basis or by equal amounts in no more than 360 months (30 years). In both cases, you will pay a fixed monthly amount consisting of interest and repayment. You are entitled to interest deduction in both cases.

Why use a mortgage advisor? – Pros & Cons

As a go-between for borrowers and lenders, mortgage advisors can be very useful if you aren’t confident in your understanding of finance or mortgaging. Hiring an advisor can be an excellent way of finding the best value home loan given your personal circumstances – just make sure you select your advisor carefully!

For some people, using a mortgage advisor can be a great move for your financial situation, but carefully consider the pros and cons and check that the advisor you choose has the qualifications and experience necessary to find you the best product they can.

Pros of using a mortgage advisor

  • A mortgage advisor can potentially be an invaluable resource for those with a poor understanding of the finance and mortgage industry or their own financial affairs;
  • An advisor may be able to find you a mortgage that’s better for your individual situation and affairs;
  • If you don’t have the time to do the extensive research required to properly assess the variety of home loan products available to you, a mortgage advisor can do this for you (within the panel of products they sell).

Cons of using a mortgage advisor

  • Mortgage advisors with a small product range of lenders are not wise to choose. This may not  give you a fair idea of the range of products that are suitable for you;
  • Educational qualifications and industry experience can differ widely between advisors, so make sure to inquire about this before you engage the services of any mortgage advisor.
