Loan for first-time buyers
- 20 February 2014
- 13 March 2014
Starting on 1 March 2014 first-time home buyers in The Hague are eligible to get a starters loan from the Municipality of The Hague.
The loan is for people who are buying their first house and is meant to give them financial support in carrying out maintenance and renovation work on the home. Buyers will only have to start paying back the interest and principal on the maintenance loan after 3 years. This should make it more appealing to purchase a home in poor condition. First-time home buyers can borrow up to € 35,000.
To get a loan you will need to meet a number of conditions. These are described in detail under Starterslening voor opknappen koopwoning.
The Stimuleringsfonds voor Volkshuisvesting (SVn) is carrying out the scheme on behalf of the municipality.
