What is a VvE

VvE is the abbreviation of Association of Owners.

Anyone who buys an apartment automatically becomes a member of the Owners' Association (VvE). As an apartment owner you have bought the exclusive right to use part of the apartment building: the apartment. The land and the building therefore have multiple owners who together form the VvE by operation of law. Unlike membership in an ordinary association, this membership cannot be refused or canceled: it only ends when you are no longer an apartment owner.

What does a HOA

The VvE represents the common interests (elevator, roof, etc.) of the owners in a building and is responsible for the maintenance of the building and the associated land.
