As a homeowner in the Netherlands, you can have your property converted into several flats, which you can then let individually. On the other hand, you may want to merge several adjacent flats into one property.
To be able to do so, in certain instances, you require a property merger or property division permit from the municipality. The conditions differ according to municipality and are laid down in the local Housing Regulations. The division into flats or merger of separate units must be specified in a notarial deed.
