5 gedachten over “The Ultimate Guide to Renting Apartments in the Netherlands”

  1. Hey! Well done! Your videos are very properly detailed and helpful. I shall be moving to the Netherlands due to work and will be starting my job in the beginning of October.
    I was thinking of actually try and have the accommodation sorted out by then but after having a look at your videos and also funda, I can see that the starting dates are rarely mentioned.
    What are your suggestions? Do you believe that the only way to rent a place is to actually be present in the Netherlands and attend viewings?

  2. Does anybody know why would someone need to take the floor with them as they are moving out? They still won't be able to place it down "as is" in the new place, right? The chances the floor from the previous place would fit in the new place are close to zero.
