Housing and support

It can be difficult to break into the (Dutch) housing market, especially if you’re not familiar with the local ins and outs. Luckily, Settly’s personal relocation support is here to save the day. You’ll get access to the Settly platform, the online community, as well as have the possibility to attend events and receive partner support if applicable.

Next to that, you will receive settling in & soft-landing support, and guidance with registering at the municipality and setting up your bank account. Just think of us as your personal assistant in relocating to the Netherlands. We’ll focus on the fuzz, so you can focus on the fun.
