New construction

New construction requires not just a purchase contract, but also an agreement for services. For this it is essential to engage a civil-law notary on time. A civil-law notary has the overview of all the legal consequences in this area. This prevents disputes on compliance with the agreement. The builder usually has one civil-law notary handle the legal part of the entire project. That notary has the building plan, the specifications and the terms and conditions of the builder. Someone buying an apartment in the newly constructed complex can engage his own civil-law notary for advice; that does, however, entail additional costs. In this case also do not be overhasty in signing the purchase contract.

You first have to be sure that you will get the mortgage. Because if you signed without including the financing as resolutive clause and then find that you cannot pay the purchase price, you have to pay a hefty fine (usually 10% of the purchase price) to annul the purchase.

In cooperation with, among others, the Royal Notarial Organization, a format was drawn up for a purchase contract/agreement for services, and attendant General Terms and Conditions with an elaboration. This format seeks to coordinate the rights and obligations of the buyer of the house to be built (or completed) with those of the contractor. The format for the purchase contract/agreement for services contains rules on the following:

  • Time of transfer of title of the land and house
  • Settlement of difference between reported and actual sizes
  • Amount of the security deposit
  • Manner of payment
  • Time of completion

 

General terms and conditions also form part of the purchase contract/agreement for services. These regulate the subjects with regard to the purchase and construction of houses that apply to every new construction project.

Examples are:

  • Consequences of changes in the construction
  • Installation of pipes and mains
  • Checking the execution
  • Maintenance term
  • Liability of the contractor
  • Guarantees and warranties

 

The notary can inform the buyer and the seller about the specifics of the format agreement and the (financial) security if the general terms and conditions are applied. He or she shall also address the less advantageous and complex issues. The notary is legally obliged to do so, due to his position of standing between the parties; he or she is impartial.

A private buyer also has a 3-day cooling-off period for a purchase contract/agreement for services during which time he can dissolve the agreement. The buyer cannot be obliged to pay more than a 10% deposit into the notary’s clients account to guarantee compliance with his obligations. The buyer is also entitled to retain 5% of the contract price from the final instalment and deposit this into the notary’s client account in case of certain defects.

Wij zijn ontzettend prettig professioneel en vooral goed geholpen door het team van Marks Wachters Lex Heijmans in het bijzonder.

Jaap van Zwet is via een kennis op ons pad gekomen. We zijn bezig met de opstart van een nieuw horecabedrijf. We zijn verrast door de veelzijdigheid en kennis waarmee wij worden bijgestaan door hem. De betrokkenheid is zeer groot dit zijn wij op deze manier niet gewend van een notaris jurist.
