Britsoc: The British Society of Amsterdam and the Netherlands. Serving the British Expat community since 1920.

Expat Housing Seminar: Tuesday February 18th , 2014

Dear British Society,

We would like to offer your members a free information evening, where we would like to explain the process of buying a property in the Netherlands.

We hold the Expat Housing Seminars in Amsterdam  on a regular base.

There will be four speakers: a mortgage advisor, an estate agent, a notary and a tax advisor, who will inform the expats in English.

We explain all there is to know about the legal, financial, tax and practical matters of buying a home in the Netherlands.

At the end of the Seminar people have the possibility to ask questions.

They all are specialized in working for expats.

We would like to know if the members of the British Society would be interested in such an evening as well.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to write us or give us a call.

Kindest regards,

MieLan Kok
