    Let op!
    A property division in the land register is only the legal division of apartment rights. In reality no new residences are created. To structurally divide a residence into multiple self-contained residences, other rules apply. Look at Woning bouwkundig splitsen (in Dutch).


    € 169.75 per apartment (for each apartment right) up to a maximum per application of € 3750.
