Expat Housing Seminar

Join the Expat Housing Seminar to learn about the advantages of buying a home in the Netherlands.


Buying a house can be a complex process, especially if you’re doing it for the first time and in a foreign country. A different country comes with different customs, laws and regulations, and having to cope with a foreign language can make things even more daunting.


On Monday, April 11, four experts will guide you through the process of buying a property so you can make a decision about owning your own home.


Expat Mortgages, Mie-Lan Kok Estate Agency, Orange Tax Services and Buma Alegra Civil Law Notaries are organizing the Expat Housing Seminar which will take place at Sociëteit Vereeniging in Haarlem (Zijlweg 1).


Note that even though this is a free event, the number of attendees is limited to 40. To register, please visit and click on the sign-up tab.
