The Hanno Mortgage Promise is a calculation of your maximum mortgage based on your income, financial obligations and savings. It’s thoroughly checked by our mortgage advisors and it’s valid for up to two months.


  • You’re employed with a permanent contract: you’ll need to share a recent salary slip and an employer’s statement
  • You’re employed with a temporary contract: besides a salary slip and employer’s statement, you also need a letter of intent

Financial obligations

  • You’ll need to indicate how much savings you have available for buying your own house in the Netherlands.

Please note: when you buy a house in the Netherlands you need savings to pay for the financing and purchasing costs (kosten koper or k.k. in Dutch). Moreover, if the purchase price of the house is higher than the appraisal value, you’ll have to cover the difference with your own assets. Even if your maximum mortgage based on your income is higher than the purchase price.
