Renting a property
Are you looking for a rental property? Chances are that we can help you!
First some more information about our company …
Amstel Housing was established in 2002 and has since then assisted many home seekers in their search for a new home, with pleasure and devotion. Since then Amstel Housing has grown considerably, our organization now has offices in Amsterdam, Amstelveen, Haarlem, Utrecht, The Hague, and Rotterdam. Under the tab ‘About us’ you will find the contact details and photos of employees per office.
In first instance Amstel Housing focuses on the intermediation of rentals to expatriates working in the Netherlands for a certain period, but developments in the real estate market known to everyone, in recent years have led to an increase in the number of Dutch house hunters, often looking for a home to overcome a temporary period of several months to several years. So if you belong to this latter group, obviously we welcome you as well!
The type of properties
The properties -usually privately owned – we offer are in most cases fully furnished and ready-to-go, or at least semi-furnished. If the house is fully furnished, basically everything is there, from towels to a vacuum cleaner, you only need to bring your suitcase! If the property is offered semi-furnished, there is flooring (carpet / wood / laminate) and there are curtains, fixed lights and kitchen equipment (fridge, oven etc.), and often a washer and dryer, but you will need to bring your own furniture and additional inventory.
The rental period
The standard rental period agreed on is 12 months with automatic indefinite extension, in some cases this may be diverted from in close consultation, and certain additional clauses can be added at the request of the tenant or landlord.
The listings you can see at any time on the website are usually available fairly quickly or immediately, we can therefore help you or your employee swiftly, as we are used to act fast! If necessary we can even arrange for you to move into the chosen property the same day!
We will find your home
We offer homes in all shapes and sizes and price ranges varying from about Euro 950 to more than Euro 7.500 per month, so chances are that you will find a suitable property in our offers. And if you cannot find what you are looking for in our portfolio, then we will be more than happy to use our extensive network to find the home that meets all your needs!
Besides the first rent payment (month or part of the month, depending on the effective date of the agreement) and deposit (equal to 1 or 2 months rent), there are NO costs associated with the mediation through our offices. We do not charge contract- or administration costs if you rent a property from our own portfolio.
Of course you can place a search order with one of our agencies, if we cannot offer you any suitable property from our own database. In this case we will take out an extensive search to find the property that meets your criteria, but outside our own portfolio. The costs in that case, if the intermediation is successful, are equal to 1 month's rent excl. 21% VAT.
Our staff in the various offices will be happy to assist you and are aware in detail of the process of looking for a home and know about the local rental market, and have a dedicated and personal approach to help you find your home as simple and effortless as possible.
Due to our extensive experience in serving international companies, we understand the needs and concerns when moving from abroad to the Netherlands. We ensure that your move will go smoothly, the only thing you have to do is enjoy your new home!
If desired we can also provide additional services to you such as relocation services, temporary furniture rental, cleaning, etc.
We hope that our website invites you to contact us. If you would like more information about a property or an extensive search, please do not hesitate to contact us.
