Stap 5 Payment

We did it! We have refunded your deposit and we will transfer the right amount to you. Together we brought justice to the Dutch housing market!


DepoClaim tries to ensure recovery of the deposit. In order to execute our activities we charge a so-called Succesfee. To avoid any misunderstandings about this succesfee, the fee is explained below. DepoClaim works according to the No Cure No Pay principle. This means that a payment only needs to be made when we have successfully refunded your deposit. This succesfee includes all expenses, so you will not be surprised with unforeseen charges. The succesfee will be a percentage of the total deposit. The height of this percentage will always be communicated transparently.

Deposit Succesfee percentage
Up to € 1000,-- 35%
From € 1000,-- to € 1500,-- 30%
From € 1500,-- 25%
