Market Rate: If you have not registered with our office or have chosen not to do so, the Market Rate applies. This rate is based on the current market value of the land, set at 84 cents per square meter per month. It serves as a standard rate to ensure fairness in situations where lessees have not completed their formal registration.
Discounted Rates: We offer a range of discounted rates depending on the nature of your lease and your registration status with our office. Each of these rates is tailored to match the specific land usage and provides advantages over the standard Market Rate for registered lessees.
Conditions: The table below outlines the requirements for each rate category, helping you determine which rate applies to you based on your lease type and registration status. We strongly encourage all lessees to register with our office to take advantage of these discounted rates. If you’re uncertain about which category you fall into or need more information on the registration process, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Your rent should be paid by December 31st each year for the upcoming year. Persuant to Article 6:119 of the Civil Code, any delay in rent payment incurs statutory interest. This interest begins to accrue from the moment your payment becomes overdue and is calculated based on the rate set by the Central Bank of Curaçao & Sint Maarten.
Interest Compounding: The interest compounds annually, meaning that each year, the interest owed will be added to the outstanding rent, increasing the amount on which future interest is calculated.
Additional Charges: In addition to interest, late payments also result in extrajudicial collection costs. These costs typically range between 15% and 20% of your total arrears, with a minimum charge of NAf 7,50.
It’s possible that inaccuracies may arise in the calculation of your rent or rent arrears, which can occur for various reasons, and we acknowledge that.
