(Cancelled): Buying a home in Belgium? ING's free event is here to help

This event has been cancelled

Belgium has long enjoyed a love affair with home ownership - but as an expat you might find it daunting making that first step on to the property ladder.

Is it worth buying if you think you'll only be in Belgium for a few years? How much can you afford? What's involved in getting a mortgage here?

The answer to these questions – and many others you might not yet have thought of – can be had at ING Bank’s free event Buying Real Estate for Expats.

Three main topics will be covered during the event, which is fully in English and takes place on the evening of Tuesday 17 March at the ING building on Avenue Marnix in Brussels, next to Trône metro station.

Kristien Viaene, the CEO of NOA Real Estate will present a session on "the latest trends in property purchases". Having worked as an estate agent in Brussels for many years, she has a wealth of knowledge about the local market.

Other speakers at the event include Alexis Lemmerling of notary firm Berquin, who will present: "How the notary will protect you and your property", and Dave Deruytter, head of expats and non-residents at ING Bank Belgium, whose session "Buying real estate in Belgium, the financing, insurance and taxation issues" provides invaluable information.

This event has been cancelled.
