Some procedures to fulfil at your arrival

If you want are looking for a house or an apartment to buy or rent, it seems that you are planning to stay in Brussels for a long period of time. In that case, whether you are European or not, you will have 3 days to go and visit the local authorities and make a declaration of arrival. You will need some documents to make sure you 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 of 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

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 good opportunity. The estate agents propose you several offers according to your requirements. They 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 can be similar to a real battle. Indeed, the competition can be hard. That is the reason why it may be a good idea to hire your own real estate agent. They offer you their assistance in the process of looking for the perfect place, for example by making a house appraisal of the property so that you are protected from 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.

This is it! You have now found the perfect place to settle. As an owner, you will benefit from special rights. It starts with the tax allowance (called abattement in French) granted to buyers. It means that when you purchase a house, you can expect a reduction of the price you generally have to pay to the Region you live in. Do not hesitate to ask these questions to your agent.
