If you want to buy a plot and realize your dream home on it, then you are probably curious about the price tag attached to it.

It may be that an existing house is still on the plot. This will have to be demolished. It is also possible that this house still contains asbestos. Demolition costs can be determined depending on the size and quantity of these 2 parts.
Costs architect / constructor
An architect translates your wishes into a sketch design. In this design, the rules of the zoning plan are of course taken into account. In a later phase, the sketch design will be converted into a complete permit application. The constructor will also have to make a complete construction calculation. These costs are included in the contract price at Measure Management.
To be able to build at all, you need an environmental permit. This replaces various separate permits, such as the building permit and environmental permit, and you can apply for it at the municipality. You pay so-called fees for such a permit. The amount thereof differs per municipality, this is around 3 to 4% of the construction costs.
If you want to take out a self-build mortgage, the lender may require a number of documents. For example, you must provide the results of a soil investigation as proof that the soil on which you are building is suitable for this. The costs for this depend on the plot size.
It is possible to take out a so-called completion guarantee with Woningborg through Measure Management. There are mortgage providers who require this. Measure Management is not obliged to take out a Housing Guarantee. The costs for a Home Guarantee Certificate are 0.5% of the contract price.
You must also be able to prove that the house to be built has a certain value. The value of the house must therefore be determined by an appraiser, based on the construction drawings and the purchase agreement. The costs of an appraisal vary but will be around $500
