If you’re new to Amsterdam and are looking for rented housing, the best and most efficient way to find a home is to engage an MVA agent experienced in helping expats. Based on your needs, budget and family composition, the agent can offer you excellent advice on which neighbourhoods in Amsterdam are suitable for you and current availability. The agent will negotiate to get you the best rental price and terms for the home you wish to rent. He/she will also advise you on the legal aspects of renting a home in the Netherlands. Before you commission the MVA agent to work for you, he/she will issue a quote for his/her services. If the negotiations have been successful and a suitable home has been found, a lease will be drawn up. Your estate agent will be there when the keys are handed over and you move in to your new home, and will ensure that this home is transferred to you as agreed.
