Every year there are adjustments made in the laws and regulations that may be important to you as a seller, buyer or homeowner. Here is a brief overview of some important changes in 2017.
(As told by lees-meer.)
In 2017 the maximum mortgage value can be up to 101 per cent of the buying price. This was reduced from 102 per cent in 2016 and will be further reduced to 100 per cent by 2018.
From January 2017 homebuyers aged between 18 and 40 years can receive a one-time, tax free contribution up to 100,000 euros. This was increased from € 53,016. This contribution may be spread over three consecutive years (2017, 2018, 2019). Please note in the last year, the recipient must be younger than 40 years.
The mortgage tax relief for mortgage holders earning over €67,072 gross will be cut from 50.5% to 50%.
Energy bills are expected to rise by some €56 a year, around half of which is due to tax increases.
The national mortgage guarantee will cover homes valued up to 247.450 euros.
