Buying your first house/property

  • Startershypotheek (starters mortgage) You could receive up to 20% extra mortgage if you are eligible for a ‘starters mortgage’. (the 'Starterslening' is included here, this is a startersloan distributed by the local municipality).
  • Maximum mortgage (with NHG) The maximum mortgage possibilities you are able to receive with your income. NHG (Nationale Hypotheek Garantie = National Mortgage Guarantee) is a liable financing construction for mortgages which offers protection for your monthly costs and therefore allows you to profit from a mortgage interest deduction.
  • The maximum purchase price (with NHG) The maximum amount you would be able to spend on your new home.
  • Gross monthly costs The gross monthly costs for the maximum mortgage (with NHG).
  • Net monthly costs The net monthly costs for the maximum mortgage (with NHG) are the monthly costs where the mortgage interest already has been deducted.
  • Reference rate The interest rate that is used to calculate your maximum expat mortgage.

There is a possibility that your maximum mortgage will exceed the NHG limit in the Netherlands. This means that you will be able to receive a higher mortgage but will not fall under the protection of the NHG. This will be mentioned separately.

Beware! You are only eligible for a mortgage with NHG when you have the Dutch nationality, you are a EU citizen or you have a permanent residence permit (not temporary). Without the NHG your mortgage interest rate might be slightly higher.

How much can I borrow in The Netherlands?

The amount you will be able to receive depends on your gross income and the value of the property you wish to purchase. On average you are allowed to spend 30% of your monthly spendable earnings on living costs. On that basis the mortgage lender will look at the possibilities with your gross year income. So if you are a expat, you can fill in the expat mortgage calculator.

Tip: the gross year salary includes holiday allowance, thirteenth month and potential set allowances and bonusses. Non-recurring or variable bonusses and extras are unfortunately aren’t included.

Do you have a partner? His or her income will also contribute to your mortgage. This will not be for the full 100% of his or her income, but will still be an interesting addition which can help you obtain a higher mortgage. All expats who will come to the Netherlands and fill in our form, will receive the mortgage calculation in their email.

All mortgage lenders or banks will use credit scoring methods. They will check the BKR (Bureau Credit Registration) to see if you have any outstanding loans and more importantly, if you have never defaulted on a loan. If you have lived in Germany, Austria, Belgium or Italy, the lender will also do a credit check in that country.

The expat mortgage interest also has an effect on the maximum amount of your mortgage if you live in the Netherlands. Generally, this means that with a lower interest you will get a higher mortgage. Often, the shorter rate fixation period has a lower interest rate. The same goes for a mortgage with NHG, this often leads to a lower interest rate.

Beware! Are you choosing a rate fixation period shorter than 10 years? Most mortgage lenders will calculate your mortgage with a much higher reference rate. This means you will pay a lower expat mortgage interest but it also means your maximum mortgage is limited.

Comparing banks and mortgage lenders

Without any obligations you are able to request a comparison between several banks and mortgage lenders made by an independent mortgage broker. This mortgage broker has insights in the different possibilities at for instance Rabobank, ING, Argenta and ABN AMBRO. The broker will also compare your options with the SNS Bank and Aegon or other mortgage lenders. When going directly to a bank you will have to pay a fee on top of your mortgage. When using a broker you do not pay a fee for the bank, you only pay a fee for the broker. At our website you can use the dutch expat mortgage calculator.

Keep in mind that the official deeds must be translated to a language you are fluent in by law. This can incur additional costs.

If you want to apply for a dutch mortgage from the NHG, you will need a Dutch nationality. If you do not have Dutch nationality, it is not possible to apply for a mortgage with NHG. The dutch mortgage calculator you will find here on this website in the Netherlands.
