A ground lease, also known as a land lease, is an arrangement in which a landowner (the lessor, in legal terminology) rents out the land to a tenant, or the lessee. A land lease in the Dutch legal system is common for business premises, but in Curaçao many residential properties are also built on rented land. Under the law, the landowner is also the legal owner of the property built on the land.
Pursuant to national ordinances and in accordance with our AML & KYC policy, we are required to verify the identity and transactions of our customers and others. This is an important task in the fight against financial crime. If you refuse to register we will not be able to process your payments and as a consequence you will not be able to fulfill your contractual obligations.
Registration is possible at our office at Van Eyck van Voorthuyzenweg 18. Once registered, you will receive a IXR (registration number) number with which your payments will be processed. You can also request an extract as proof of registration (the first one will be free of charge). Registration by email is also possible by completing the 8225 form and sending it back. Send the completed form back by email, and don’t forget to include the documents below.
Required by law. Valid 'sedula' (local ID), driver's license or passport
