FAQ

RENT

Rental has started. The registration period runs from Wednesday, 13 March 12:00 am to Wednesday, 27 March 12:00 am.

IVY is a new construction project which is still under construction. It is therefore difficult to communicate a definite delivery date. The current planning is that the apartments will be delivered Q3 2024, this is an indication and no rights can be derived from this. Later the date will be definitively confirmed to the new tenants.

For the social rental apartments and middle segment housing, house sharing is not allowed.

For the free sector apartments, house sharing is allowed with a maximum of two people. Both persons appear on the rental agreement and are primarily responsible for all rights and obligations of the rental agreement.

Ivy will be completed in the coming months, and we are dependent on several parties. Once the lease start date is known, we will contact you for the key handover and completion inspection. Please note that keys will only be handed over once the rental agreement has been signed and the first rent and deposit have been paid.

The delivery of the property will take place after the building has been handed over by the contractor to the owner and after the building and housing are properly accessible.

Space in and around the building is limited so not everyone can move in at the same time. In order to manage this, the deliveries and removals of the residents will have to take place in phases. For this purpose, a time slot will be assigned in consultation in which you can move.

The apartments are currently under construction. Therefore, for safety reasons, it is not possible to view at this time. You will be notified as soon as a viewing or viewing day is possible.

We advise you to register via the Ivy website to keep up to date with the latest developments.

The homes are intended for people who are in the working life stage, after completing any studies. If the study takes place next to work, for example, for further specialization then it is allowed to rent a home in this project if the income standard is met. The minimum age for occupancy is 23 years.

No, this is prohibited. Keep in mind that this can result in immediate termination of your contract and a heavy fine. This is explicitly included in the rental agreement.

In IVY Amsterdam, pets are allowed provided they do not cause a nuisance.

There is an option to rent a parking space in the Ivy’s indoor parking garage. These will be assigned at a later date. The number of parking spaces is limited and some spaces are not spacious. The garage is less or not suitable for cars with large dimensions or low ground clearance.

Cost for a parking space will be around € 125.00 pm, excluding service charges.
The service costs per parking space will be € 20,- pm.

The City of Amsterdam does not issue parking permits at this address.

Currently, no parking spaces with a charging station are available due to limited network capacity. The premise is to still realize them after the network operator increases capacity.

There is an indoor bicycle storage facility in IVY; it is only accessible to residents.

There are currently no charging spots available for electric bicycles.

Homes in IVY are rented in the social , middle and free sector segments. There is also a transient boarding house. The boarding house provides independent living space to people who have no housing for a short period of time. These are mainly people who have lost their homes due to financial problems, such as job loss or divorce. During their stay, they can seek a structural solution. . Those boarders who need it receive professional support. Most guests are at work during the day.

There are commercial spaces on the first floor of IVY. One space has been leased to Rocycle Personal Trainer/Sport Physiotherapist Train Healthy is also setting up shop on the first floor. We are still looking for tenants for one commercial space and the catering space.

Ivy features an enclosed courtyard garden. Residents have access to the courtyard garden. Maintenance of the courtyard garden is provided by landscapers.

AVAILABILITY

If your preferred apartment is no longer available, you will automatically be put on the reserve list if you meet the requirements. If none of your preferences are available, but you would still like an apartment in IVY, you can always change your preferences. Login to your account and change your preferences. You may then be assigned to an available apartment.

Please note that new apartments may become available every day, so visit the website regularly.

Based on the income requirement, the availability and the outcome of your personal credit check you can qualify for an apartment. The order of receipt of the application form is not a criterion for allocation. If there are multiple applications for the same apartment, the apartment will be allocated randomly. It is therefore wise to indicate multiple preferences.
