PROLOGUE

Amsterdam, Friday 29th January 2010

LOCATION

On the search for a place to live in Amsterdam I used the two main websites for expatriates, craigslist and expatriates.com. Most of the replies came from people who appeared to not to live in Amsterdam. Their reason vary, either because they secured a job in London, or they got married to a Nigerian man, or they were transferred somewhere else for their work. NARRATIVE

The writers try to build up a character and provide information about the apartment. They show the story of a person that you don't know. THIS BOOK

In this book, 35 e-mails are treated as a piece of literature, and their mistakes and errors are kept as part of the original text. The order of the texts is loosely alphabetical. Some e-mails had photographs attached. Their original size in memory and in pixels are mentioned.

OLIVER NELSON

REASONING

What is the reason behind these letters with these apartments? Obviously the senders want to make some money out of this. To prove that you are really interested in the apartment you are required to transfer money to them, and they promise that they will send you a signed contract with the keys of the house. It may be true that they own a house in Amsterdam and that they want to rent it, however if it is not you transferred money to an unknown person with no chance of getting it back.

APARTMENT OWNERSHIP

Kadaster is a Dutch governmental service that promotes legal certainty in the social movements in property, ships and aircrafts. It maintains and updates records about who owns an apartment, how big it is, what is the construction material etc. These records are available for a fee. Kadaster's vision is to provide better governance and an easier environment for the real estate industry. However even Kadaster may not know who is the real owner of a specific property. As it can happen in the Netherlands that you are registered at a different address than the address where you live, something similar may happen with the ownership of properties. For example, the address Noorderstraat 55 appears to be owned by at least 3 people (Andrew Carrington p.31, Jorgensen Andrew p.147, and Puffett Simon p.225). According to Kadaster there can be only two apartments/flats in this address.

Little about myself.I am Geb Arndt,hailed from Germany.I’m married with two kids.I studied in different places (Montpellier, Paris, Aix en Provence and Berlin) and spent a year as an History Erasmus exchange student at the Humboldt University in Berlin 4 years ago before entering HEC Paris for a Master’s degree in International Risk Management and International Affairs. I’ve worked for British Telecom Global Services in Paris, Berlin and now London.I was in Amsterdam five years ago for my intenship,it was then I purchase my apartment.I have all the documents with my Lawyer over here in England.Now I want to rent the apartment out for either long or short period depending on you.I really don’t like how it is vacant now since I have settled down in England here for a long contract.I atually gave the apartment to an agent last year but I don’t really like how he exploit the tenant and also ripped me off.Now I have decided to rent it out myself now.So I will be glad to come over to handover you the keys as soon as I’m able to confirm the refundable security deposit payment from you.You will have to make this payment via western union money transfer for confirmation and proper legal documentation by my Attorney. This is because I was a victim of bad experience two months ago.I travelled down from England here to meet some fake tenants without confirming their seriousness and readiness, it was later I realised they have no money ready for the rent but just to view the apartment because they love the apartment..I wasted my money and time.Since Then I have been advised by my Attorney not to meet any tenant without confirming the receipt of his or her refundable security deposit payment alongside with the fully signed legal documents that will be forwarded to you to sign by my Attorney.The legal documents is just to secure both I and you under the law and to protect your fund incase of any inconviency form either parties.One more thing I would like to solicit for the absolute maintainance of my

Kimberley Freeman Hello, I will quickly give you a simple description of the apartment so that you can decide if it is ok for your schedule or not. The one bedroom studio apartment was furnished to the taste of every modern day business minded person. I and my husband wanted to use it personally when he was transferred to work there but he was later transferred to Victoria Garden city, Lagos Nigeria, so we left together with the keys and locked up the place since we still have all our valuable things inside the apartment. I am originally from St. Andrews Scotland but I fell in love with an African man so I married him, we have been married for close to 20years now and we have a lovely kids, a boys and a girl, My husband is a music producer and he is an hardworking man and is always on the move so I am left to take care of the issue of getting a good tenant for the apartment. The apartment will be free for the next 1 year and 5 months and we are ok with any long or shot term rental. The studio is ideally situated on the Prinsengracht, in the Jordaan, one of the most charming neighborhoods in the city centre of Amsterdam. In the Jordaan are many cafĂŠs, trendy restaurants, art galleries and small boutique shops. Central Station is within walking distance. Address: Prinsengracht 1015 Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Accommodation located in city, downtown, near shopping area, near restaurants & bars, near cultural interest, near historical interest The apartment is loaded with all the utilities like, wireless Internet, electricity, water, refrigerator, water heater, Laundry Facilities, Parking Available, Satellite TV, stove and Oven. Every thing is included in the rental of 700 Euros. We made the rent low so that the tenant can help us take good care of the place for the time we will be away. The entire floors are made of polished fine woods and it needs cleaning regularly to keep it in form and shining. The fancy lights bring out the beauty at night. The picture on the wall of the bedroom

cost us a lot and need care in handling it. The bed is large enough for 2/3 persons to sleep and the floor will need constant cleaning as well. When I visited him I was fascinated by the kitchen materials I saw so I equipped my kitchen to the taste of every one that love cooking. But if you don’t want to cook make sure the kitchen is clean and everything locked up safe for me. The bathroom is made of woods all thru and it has every thing you can think of except I don’t know that thing you need there that was not included. There is even a cosmetic shelf in the bathroom and it is for both males and females. If you are staying for up to 1 year 1 month rent will be paid in advance, and if you are staying for bellow 5 months 1-month rent will be paid in advance if you are staying for just a month maybe we will talk about that after I get your mail. If every thing suits your taste get back to me and let me know so that I can talk over with my husband and get back to you. Have a nice day, Kimberley.

Matt Starkenburg Thank you for your interest.As you can see I have available the apartment located in 358 Kinkerstraat, Amsterdam 1053GG, Netherlands. It has 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 kitchen and 1 living room. Because I moved with my job in United Kingdom, Manchester and I need money to pay the rent here. This is the main reason I want to rent at this price and also to find a good person for my apartment. I can rent you the apt. for max. 5 years because I have a contract here for this period. I `m the owner of the apt and its like in the pics. The rent for 1 month is 800 euro including all utilities (water, electricity, Internet, cable). You can move in the apt in the same day when you receive the keys. The only problem is that I `m the only person who have the keys but I hope that we will find a compromise. Thank you for your interest and I will look forward to hearing from you soon. Good luck,

Melanie Fox Hi Mike, I am at the office now and I am very busy with so much work to do. I am working on contract with my present company and as the chief engineer I must make sure my duties are met according to schedule. Maybe I have a shot time to write this but I will try to give you details of my apartment. I was really afraid to give the place out to some one that will destroy the flashy things in there. I had to reduce the monthly rent, as I need the tenant to help me take proper care of my property. Apartment address - Noorderkerkstraat 9 - 1015 Amsterdam, Netherlands I work with the Old England Camel Con. Company in Victoria Garden City Lagos, Nig. I still have 3 years to be away and my apartment will be open as long as that time lasts. I don’t know when you are moving into the apartment and when you will be leaving the apartment. I mean I want to know the lent of your stay in the apartment, the date you are going to pack in and the day you will be moving out. The utility bills are included in the monthly rent of 700 euros, they are the Internet, Cable tv, and Electricity and gas. If you are staying for up to 1 year an upfront 2-month rent will be paid as security deposit. And if you are staying for bellow 5 months 1-month rent will be paid as security deposit, the security deposit will be refunded at the end of your rent if every thing fine with the apartment as this is the law. I have my own laundry private in the apartment, oven and AC. I like to know more about you and the kind of person you are. I like to know your name and present location. I would like to know if you are a student or if you work then what is your occupation. If you do business then what kind of business do you deal on? You can also call me on my phone at any time of the day +2348038145008, I will be glad if you try.

I have a glass and steel set of chairs with a central glass and steel table in the middle and you need to be careful since it can get broken. The sitting room has a partial wall window on the outside part. I love it when I put off my light at night and view the streets at night with the windows wild open. I also need you to be careful on how you treat the glass window. In my bedroom stands another set of wardrobe with 4 pullout doors that gives the room that shiny look when the fancy lights are on at night. The painting on the wall on top of my bed cost me $3000 in Beaumont, TX 3 years ago. The floor of my bedroom is a mix of fine forest wood and spray that requires cleaning. If you love to cook then you will love my kitchen since every thing is set for the arrival of the cook. But if you will not use them then forget it I just need my kitchen to remain neat that all. The keys are right here with me. I already said as much as I can right now and would need answers to all questions I asked. If you need to contact me I have my phone above.

Oliver Nelson It’s really nice to confirm your interest in my apartment.I have no problem renting you my flat as much as I’m able to confirm your genuity and seriousness. Little about myself.I am Oliver Nelson,hailed from Germany. I’m married with two kids.I studied International relation at Humboldt University of Berlin.I was in Amsterdam three years ago for my intenship,it was then I purchase my apartment.I have all the documents with my Lawyer over here in England.Now I want to rent the apartment out for either long or short period depending on you.I really don’t like how it is vacant now since I have settled down in England here for a long contract.I atually gave the apartment to an agent last year but I don’t really like how he exploit the tenant and also ripped me off.Now I have decided to rent it out myself now.So I will be glad to come over to handover you the keys as soon as I’m able to confirm the refundable security deposit payment from you. This is because I was a victim of bad experience two months ago.I travelled down from England here to meet some fake tenants without confirming their seriousness and readiness, it was later I realised they have no money ready for the rent but just to view the apartment because they love the apartment..I wasted my money and time.Since then I have been advised by my Attorney not to meet any tenant without confirming the receipt of his or her refundable security deposit payment alongside with the fully signed legal documents that will be forwarded to you to sign by my Attorney.The legal documents is just to secure both I and you under the law and to protect your fund incase of any inconviency form either parties.One more thing I would like to solicit for the absolute maintainance of my apartment and want you to take good care of it as your own property. Provide the details below for the legal contract documents:

The address is - Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 50, 1012 Amsterdam, The Netherlands..

And if you are staying for bellow 5 months 1-month rent will be paid for the first 1 month you will occupy the apartment. The apartment has charming on-sight beams and finely selected furnishings, this 75sq.mt apartment offers a refined ambience with a true charm. The front door opens up directly into the day area, welcoming guests into a spacious living room with large windows and furnished with double sofa bed, a flat screen tv, and a rectangular glass-top dining table which extends into a round table to comfortable sit up to 6 dinner guests. A leather screen hides the opening to the niche where the modern and fully equipped separate kitchen is, complete with all necessities including a dishwasher and a combo micro-oven. The sleeping area offers a bright and spacious double bedroom furnished with a charming chest of drawers by a small leather armchair matching the leather bed frame. Two doors in the room hide two further areas: the walk-in closet, large and well lit and complete with a washer-dryer; and the en-suite bathroom, fitted with a large

EPILOGUE

Finding a place to live in Amsterdam isn’t easy. In fact it is not a task that the residents of Amsterdam have to deal with; it is a demanding challenge instead. Long waiting lists that sometimes can take more than 10 years are very popular for the affordable subsidized houses. Waiting lists are also popular for students. It has happened to some students (who applied for a student house) that they didn’t receive a single housing offer for as long as they were studying, and studies can very easily take 4-5 years. Fortunately this has happened only to very few students, but the fact that even this is possible in the Netherlands, indicates the obscure and uncertain housing market of the Dutch landscape. Even to get a parking permit in the center of Amsterdam, you have to wait up to 8 years. Taking into consideration the amount of parking spots, as well as the demand for parking in the city center, it makes it understandable that there are no more parking spots available. When to think that the average age of a car in the Netherlands is about 8.6 years (cbs.nl, 2010) you can understand why you have to wait up to 8 years. There are reasons behind it which are rational. Similarly, the shortage of subsidized housing in Amsterdam can create this situation, in which certain individuals have waited for more than 10 years. Aside from the subsidized housing there is the free market, which I think it is a total mess.

I have been living for 2 years in Amsterdam, and in these two years I had to change houses 7 times. The reasons had varied. Either the landlord one day decided to stop my contract with the excuse that she was hearing noises (which were from the neighbor) or because the person who I was subletting my room from decided to get married and live somewhere else, or because somebody went for 6 months to Thailand, and I could rent her house for only 6 months (which is actually the longest I ever stayed in a house in Amsterdam). It has been 2 years in Amsterdam already, and I still feel alienated, foreign. I haven’t managed to make myself feel at home, and it is even worse that the city of Amsterdam turns out to be a non-hospitable, nonwelcoming city for newcomers. It is extremely contradictory with the hospitable, easy going and warm lifestyle (if you have a home...) of Amsterdam. Also at the moment of writing this text I am for the search of a house. Living in the same city and being constantly on the move, is typical in Amsterdam. In the long run, it turns out that I am part of some nomadic cult, constantly searching for a place to live. This cult, this group of people is not homeless, refugees or fugitives. We are just people who don’t own a house in Amsterdam, and we are willing to live in this city. The reason for why we are in Amsterdam and what we do in this city varies within the group. The simple demand for housing is what forms this group of people.

What is the reason behind this phenomenon? Why does it happen? This problem is not due to the lack of houses. In fact, many houses in Amsterdam are empty which makes the situation really tragic. I believe that this problem comes from a mixture of several factors, such as badly planned politics, high mortgages, vicious mentality of certain apartment owners, but also renters who don’t know their rights could be considered some of the reasons behind this problem. Overall, it is more affordable to buy a house than to rent one (since rent is not tax deductible but mortgage is.) There are owners, who prefer to rent their property for -lets say1500 euros instead of 1000 euros. If nobody rents their property for a year, they have lost 12000 euros in their attempt for 18000. This is not a rare case. It is a rather common phenomenon, since it seems that many owners tend to overprice their property based on where the property is located, instead of on the value of or the quality of the actual property. Another problem that I can see is a passive acceptance of almost everything which seems to be part of the Dutch culture and mentality. The property owners always try to reach the boundaries of the highest possible rental price, and if at least one person accepts this price, it instantly becomes normalized.

I think that this problem is artificial, and the responsibility for it belongs collectively to everyone who is related with this in one way or another. I do not exclude myself from it, and I do not have any solution to propose, however I find it hard to believe that in the country in which the polder model was developed, in this country in which the way of living is extremely highly regulated, I do find it hard to believe that such problem is not solved. I do not believe that the Netherlands is a country which has lack of talent in inventing smart ideas and finding creative solutions to various problems. The quality of life and the services which are provided in the Netherlands are svery high, and they rank among the best of the world. It is because the Dutch people do have high demands of quality in their lives. On the contrary the housing situation makes the living standards in the Netherlands very low. In the end, I am asking myself if this artificial problem is there to serve some reason.
