Question

What is the difference between lease land and property land?

Answer

Lease land is land owned by the Government on which a lease is granted for a long term (60 years), to a title holder. To obtain lease land, one can apply for at Domeinbeheer (Directorate of Land Administration). With lease land there is a yearly rent that has to be paid by the holder to the government.

Property land is land that is owned outright (freehold) by the title holder, and tends to be a more expensive. Property Tax (Grondbelasting) is charged by the Tax Department on the land and also the value of building the building constructed on it. The effective tax rate is about 0.4% of the land and property value after any exemptions.
