Your questions answered

To Buy

  • Can you sell your property if the electricity inspection is negative?
    A negative electricity inspection should not be a stumbling block to sell your home. You must inform the potential buyer about the negative certificate. You can also hand this over to the agreement. This way no discussion is possible. Any questions? Do not hesitate to contact us via info@stijnvoet.be or 0497 977 056. We are happy to help you.
  • Can you refinance your loan at your own bank?
    You can refinance your credit with your own bank. Therefore you do not have to go to another financial institution. Your bank will most likely ask you a fee of three months interest and this as a reinvestment fee. In addition, your bank will also request additional file costs. Any questions? Do not hesitate to contact us via info@stijnvoet.be or 0497 977 056. We are happy to help you.
  • Help: a crack in the fa├žade. Can I cancel my purchase?
    If you have already signed the agreement, you are basically stuck with the purchase. You are then actually obliged to cooperate in the execution of the notarial deed. If you do not do this, the seller can claim a compensation or he can force you to continue the purchase anyway.

  • We are going apart. What about the mortgage loan?
    If you live together with your partner and you divorce, one of you can buy the house. For this, a buy-out sum is often paid to the other. How do you determine the purchase price? The current value of the residence is reduced by the amount of the outstanding mortgage loan. This amount once again divided by two if you both owned the property.

To rent

  • Has a tenant pre-emption right?
    If you want to sell the house, the apartment or the commercial property that you rent out, your tenant does not have a pre-emption right unless you explicitly agreed this pre-emtion right with him. More questions about this item? Do not hesitate to contact us via info@stijnvoet.be or 0497 977 056. We are happy to help you.
  • How far can you go in screening candidate-tenants?
    In search of the ideal tenant, more and more real estate owners are screening the candidates. How far can they go? If you rent a house, apartment or studio, you want the best candidate. The ideal tenant pays his rent money, maintains the property well and is not inconvenient and uncomfortable. You have every interest in selecting the right candidate. But the prospective tenant also has rights. Do not hesitate to contact us via info@stijnvoet.be or 0497 977 056. We are happy to help you with al your further questions.
  • Are smoke detectors mandatory in a rental home?
    The answer to this question is yes. In Flanders, you as a landlord are obliged to place a smoke detector in the home that you let. You must provide a smoke detector per building layer. An example: if you rent a house with three habitable floors, each floor must be equipped with a smoke detector. If you rent an apartment (a building layer) then it is sufficient to place one smoke detector. Have you not installed a smoke detector in the current home that you rent now? Then we advise you to arrange this as soon as possible. Any questions? Do not hesitate to contact us via info@stijnvoet.be or 0497 977 056. We are happy to help you with al your further questions.
  • Is it allowed to refuse smokers as renters?
    The answer to this is no. This does not alter the fact that some landlords have included in the rental contract that it is forbidden to smoke in the house (inside). Do not hesitate to contact us via info@stijnvoet.be or 0497 977 056 if you have further questions. We are happy to help you.
  • May you, as a landlord, refuse to allow pets from your rental property?
    As owner of the home you can have a ban on pets included in the contract, but you can not enforce the ban. If the pet does not cause any inconvenience, there is no reason for the judge to terminate the lease. Do not hesitate to contact us via info@stijnvoet.be or 0497 977 056 if you have further questions. We are happy to help you.
  • Which identity details can you ask as a landlord to your prospective tenant?
    The name and first name of the prospective tenant may be asked at the first meeting. Asking for an identity card is also a possibility. You may only request a telephone number or e-mail address to contact them at that time, for example to see the property.

    What can not you ask? The national register number and an extract from the criminal record. Furthermore, you may not ask for information about the financial condition or capital situation (ownership of real estate).
    If the prospective tenant owns a car, you may only request the car brand and the license plate if you rent a parking space or garage. Do not hesitate to contact us via info@stijnvoet.be or 0497 977 056 if you have further questions. We are happy to help you.
