Etten-Leur Noord: The Etten-Leur Noord neighbourhood is in fact the original, old Leur; so it is basically a neighbourhood with a soul. This is down to the wedding church, for one thing, and the monumental Sint Petruskerk (St. Peter's Church). The Van Bergenplein (town square) is a full-blown shopping strip with a large Lidl supermarket (and the Jumbo a little further down on the Geerkade), but you can also do plenty of other shopping here. As you can easily park out front, it is a popular shopping area. A weekly market is also held here on Friday mornings. Seniors and juniors are welcome in this area: De Hasselbraam primary school on Beukenlaan has just been fully renovated and there is also a school for special needs children nearby at "Het Kompas" on Van Genkstraat. For sports in Etten-Leur Noord, you can head to De Vijf Huizen tennis park. It is an active tennis club with seven outdoor courts and a large clubhouse. So, if you want a feel for the atmosphere, Etten-Leur Noord is the place to be. It is a very popular older neighbourhood (!) that is also easy to reach. By bus as well as by car. You'll be on the highway to Breda, Roosendaal or Antwerp in no time thanks to the excellent arterial roads. Etten-Leur: Etten-Leur is a growing municipality with about 44,000 inhabitants, spread over 15 neighbourhoods. It arose from the linear villages of Etten and Leur. After the main road was moved from the core area to the outskirts in 2000, space was created for a new centre and Etten-Leur became a close-knit community. Its central location near highways and cities such as Breda, Rotterdam and Antwerp make it an attractive place to live and work. On the outer ring road, business parks are located where a number of large, well-known companies are based, but there are also lots of local and regional industries. All in all, Etten-Leur is a healthy place to live with plenty of employment opportunities. Character-wise, Etten-Leur can best be described as a large village, but with characteristics of a city. For instance, it has a wonderful shopping centre, good schools, excellent sports venues and numerous entertainment venues, including its own theatre and a cinema. Moreover, it has a marina and a train station within the municipal boundaries. Etten-Leur is nestled in rural West Brabant, where forests and nature are literally close at hand. In the surrounding area, there is plenty of opportunity for cycling, walking and recreational pursuits. You can sail to the Biesbosch from the harbour. Conditions of sale: Asbestos clause In homes built before 1 July 1993, there is a risk that materials containing asbestos may have been incorporated in such things as (smoke) ducts, roofs/roof panelling, partition walls, facade panels, or close to heating and hot water appliances and in floor coverings. The seller is not aware that any materials containing asbestos have been used, the potential risk of this is transferred to the purchasing party after conclusion of the sale, which is specified in the deed of sale. Age clause The age clause will be included in the deed of sale for this home because the property is more than 125 years old, which means that the requirements for the construction quality are considerably lower than for new homes. As a result, the buyer cannot claim that this property deviates from the current building regulations. NEN2580 Measurement Guidelines The Measurement Guidelines are based on the NEN2580. The Measurement Guidelines are intended to provide a more uniform method of taking measurements in order to give an indication of the usable area. The Measurement Guidelines do not fully rule out any discrepancies in measurement results, due to differences in interpretation, or rounding off, or limitations in the carrying out of measurements, for instance. The basic premise is always "what you see is what you buy" and the object information has a lower priority. The purchase agreement is only legally valid after it has been signed A verbal agreement between the private seller and private buyer is not legally binding. This means that there is only a legally valid purchase once the private seller and private buyer have signed the purchase agreement. This stems from Article 7:2 of the Dutch Civil Code. A confirmation of the verbal agreement by email or a forwarded draft of the purchase agreement is also not considered a legally valid agreement. Security deposit or bank guarantee As Agnes Tomesen Makelaardij is affiliated with the NVM, use is made of the purchase agreement model as formulated by the NVM, VBO, the Dutch Consumers' Association (Consumentenbond) and the Vereniging Eigen Huis (Homeowners’ Association). Included as standard in this deed of sale is a security deposit or a bank guarantee amounting to 10% of the purchase price.
