Depending on the date of purchase of the property and wether the property is
considered as a new house or not, you might be subjet to
Capital gains taks. Calculation is quite complicated and depends on
several issues, we can assist you here.
Before you decide to sell, it is important to check this, before signing a pre sale
contract. Tax can be quite important and the notary is obliged to reduce this
tax immediately from the sales price.
You also need to be careful when signing a pre sale contract with special
conditions precedent like the approval of a mortgage.
The majority of the buyers will need a mortgage for purchase, but it is important
to check whether they are financially reliable. Once you’ve signed the compromis,
you as a seller are blocked and the sale can be cancelled afterwards without any
compensation, you might have missed other, more reliable buyers.
After the signing of the compromis, the buyer still has a 10
days cool off period (according to the
law S.R.U.) and has the right to change his mind and could cancel the buy without
any compensation. You as a seller don’t have this right!
Depending on the region and date of construction of the house, you,as a seller,
are obliged to carry out and pay for the necessary survey
reports concerning asbestos, lead in paint, termites, gaz, energy performance,
“risk zones” to which the property is exposed like flood, earthquake
etc and an inspection of electrics. We advise you to carry out this survey as soon as you decide to sell,
at least you will know where you are, and this could avoid unpleasant surprises the moment a buyer presents himself. This survey report needs to be attached when signing the compromis.
