THE BOARD

N.B. Registration by the municipality of Dronten is based on legal regulations and does not imply permission for permanent residence.

What does ground lease or capital contribution mean?

Brief explanation of "ground lease" and "capital contribution" If you buy a bungalow at De Bremerberg park, then you buy more than just a bungalow: you are the co-owner of the park as a whole. That is because the purchase of the bungalow is linked to membership of the Cooperative Association De Bremerberg. You can enjoy your house and you decide, as a member of the association, about the facilities around your bungalow. A challenging combination that appeals to many! After all, you have an influence on the design of the park of which your recreational bungalow belongs. In short, this is what makes De Bremerberg so special.

Your bungalow stands on a piece of land, a plot of 225 m2. When you buy the bungalow, you do not buy the land, you only buy the building. The land on which your bungalow stands is part of the park and the park leases the land to you. The amount of the ground rent is always known for five years. The last time is the amount of the ground rent, currently € 710.00 per year, determined in 2017. The next change is therefore to be expected in 2022. So you know where you stand and you are involved as the amount of the lease is changed.

This is how co-decision works. The Bremerberg comprises more than the sum of 220 bungalows: there is a swimming pool, a tennis court, a recreation room, there are paths, parking spaces and green areas, there are containers where you can dispose of your household waste, a landfill for bulky garbage and another landfill for big green, there is a playground, a reception. And so on and on. All these communal facilities are jointly managed and agreements are made at the general members' meetings that are organized at least twice a year. De Bremerberg is a Cooperative Association. The owners of the bungalows or the members of the association, choose their board, determine the annual budget, approve the annual accounts and together decide on the future of the park and the facilities that are maintained for members and for the recreational tenants. The association's budget largely consists of two important items on the receiving side: the income from the ground lease and the annual membership fee (call it "contribution").

During the Extraordinary Member Meeting of December 15, 2012, it was decided that a leaseholder can conclude a new perpetual lease with the association before January 1, 2021. A clear agreement so that you as the owner with a bungalow on a long-term lease know where you stand and which is important when obtaining a mortgage when purchasing a bungalow.

In practice in 2013, obtaining a mortgage for holiday bungalows on leasehold land is very difficult, but with a perpetual contract it is different. Notary Van Dijk in Dronten has therefore drafted a new agreement that is acceptable to the bank. At the time, money had to be borrowed, in particular for the purchase of the park's land, because the association did not have its own capital. The cheapest way of financing was an interest-free loan from the members, through a compulsory participation in the member capital of € 5,331.92 per membership. Upon sale, the ownership of the bungalow is transferred, including the amount of the capital contribution of € 5,331.92. The associated lot is the property of the association, the new bungalow owner becomes leaseholder of this lot.

Finally: No rights can be derived from this public-friendly explanation. Articles of association, internal regulations, general conditions for long-term lease and the implementation rules or policy rules based thereon apply in full.
