What do you need to buy a house in Belgium?

A work position, an attraction for the city on its own, a love story... all reasons are good for coming to Brussels. When you are planning to stay for a long period of time, several options are available renting or buying a property. In the end, the questions stay the same: what area would be the best to live? What are the details you need to focus on when choosing an apartment or a house? In this case, real estate agents will be there to help you. You give them all the information (relaxing or vibrant neighbourhood, access to public transport or car park, and so on) and they will find a suitable home.

Prior to any rent or buy, you will have to accomplish some administrative procedures beforehand. The process is the same whether you come from another European country or not. You shall visit the Brussels local authorities within 3 days in order to make a declaration of arrival. Of course, you will need some documents so that you can fulfil all the requirements:

  • a passport or an ID card;
  • your medical record, including your vaccines (for you and all the members of your family and even your pets);
  • a visa and a residence status issued by the FPS Home Affairs (mandatory for every stay lasting more than 3 months).

The procedure consists in applying for a registration in an office of the City of Brussels or in your local town hall – there are 19 municipalities in Brussels, each having at least one population office. While European citizens are immediately added on the waiting list due to the freedom of movement and establishment inside the Schengen area, non-EU residents have to provide their temporary residence permit (known as visa D) in order to be registered.

Of course, if you are staying for a long time, there are high chances you will have to work (maybe that was the reason for your arrival) and you may also need to drive. In this case, do not forget to bring these other certificates (and have them translated by a sworn translator so that it is legal):

  • your school certificates and university degrees;
  • a driving licence issued by a country where you have lived at least 6 months as well as a statement of your ex-insurers if you have had any car accident or not;
  • a declaration of commitment for all salaried workers or a registration of the BCE for independent workers is a plus.

Services provided by these real estate agencies

couple de nouveaux propriétaires

Are you looking for a new apartment, a house or a land where you can build? Research may take time and there are risks you miss a great opportunity. Estate agents present several offers to their clients according to their requirements. These experts also make you benefit from their large network of owners, sellers and building contractors so that you can conclude a good deal for both parts.

Buying your new house is for sure a demanding activity with many other people looking for the similar offers. That is the reason why hiring your own real estate agent is ideal. Thanks to their assistance, you can save time, but also money: they pay attention to every detail, for example by making a house appraisal of the property. You won't have to worry about hidden defects which might result in a bad investment. You should also know that a notary is required in every property transaction. Then, do not forget to count their fees in the final amount.

When you finally have found the ideal house, your agent will help you bargain with the owner. Indeed, there are several conditions favouring a lower sale price. For example, the period it has been offered for sale, the price of other similar houses in the same area, highlighting the weaknesses of the property and so on. Before deciding to buy a property, it is highly recommended to ascertain all your needs are going to be fulfilled. If not, there are chances you will have to start construction or transformation works. The costs of those may exceed the budget you had established. Of course, there are high probabilities the house or apartment does not meet 100% of your requirements. That is the reason why it is important to know what concessions you are ready to make.

If you still have doubts, but you want to make an offer before someone else buys the house that may be the one you were looking for, there is something you can do. Make an offer to the seller with suspended conditions. That means yo can withdraw your offer without expenses if some of the conditions you had agreed on are not fulfilled.

The rights and obligations of a new owner

This is it! You have finally found the perfect place to settle. As an owner, you will benefit from special rights. It starts with the tax allowance granted to buyers. When you purchase a house or another kind of estate, you have to pay a registration fee going to the Region you live in. Depending on the price of the place and other factors (for example, if you were already living there), this fee can be more or less expensive. In order to help people to buy their own house, there is a reduction of this price (called abattement in French). In Brussels, you don't have to pay the fee until 175 000€. Exceeding this amount, there is a tax of 12,5%, but if you fulfil some conditions it could be less.

There is another thing that will be new in your tax return: the cadastral income. It is a fictive income, which is equivalent to the amount of money you would have won if you had rent your estate for a year (since the tax return has to be submitted once a year). What you will have to pay in the end is called the property tax and consists in a percentage of the cadastral income. Do not hesitate to ask these questions to your agent.
