Please email me if you have an agreement and do not know if there is a legally binding contract or if you simply want legal advice on your rights, obligations and remedies in accordance with the terms of the contract. A: The law of the land (at least in every state I know) is that agreements for real estate must be written. SO, unless the verbal agreement has been reduced to the letter and signed by the sellers (you don`t need to have signed), you can`t impose it and they can accept another offer. It`s a tricky part of how the process works. I am an exclusive buyer agent and I always present that sellers must first sign the final agreement after we get the verbal agreement.

Note that the down payment on the property is 10% of the purchase price paid six weeks after signing the sale contract. This can be replaced by a bank guarantee issued by a Dutch bank.

The Makelaar can help you from the beginning to the end of the home hunt, including technical inspection, negotiations, understanding the bidder system and the administrative work that accompanies the purchase of a home. A very important factor in buying a property is that you are aware of the legal position of the property. This means that you need to check whether it is a property without property or an erfpacht building. If your potential home is free, then you own the property and the house entirely. The lease would mean that you only own the house, but not the land (this is also the case for apartments). This means that you pay an annual fee for the rental of the land. Your real estate agent can provide this information.
