Investing in real estate in the Netherlands 2019

For this fifth edition of the booklet Investing in real estate in the Netherlands we have again bundled together the expertise and experience of various Loyens & Loeff attorneys at law, tax advisers and civil law notaries to address real estate investment in the Netherlands.

Investing in real estate

Its content is intended for those considering investing in real estate subject to Dutch law. It is addressed not only to foreign professional investors but also to financiers, advisers and high net worth individuals. Now, in 2019, both commercial and residential real estate is considered a solid and valuable investment. We have therefore given the legal implications of residential lease a more prominent place in this edition. The current practice shows that investors are increasingly opting for a share transaction instead of an asset deal. Such share transactions are often leverage based, resulting in more (fiscally) complex transactions.

The following topics are covered:

  • Real estate as an investment category
  • Some civil aspects of real estate
  • Real estate finance
  • Spatial planning & environment
  • Corporations and partnerships
  • Regulatory aspects of real estate investment institutions
  • Privacy and real estate
  • Taxation of real estate
