You can work as an estate agent on a temporary and occasional basis, if you are a citizen of a Member State of the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland. In this event, you must meet the following conditions:

  • you are legally established in another Member State and working there as an estate agent
  • if the profession of estate agent is not regulated in the original Member State, you have worked as an estate agent in one or more Member States for at least one year during the ten years prior to your provision of services in Belgium

The Executive Chamber assesses the temporary and occasional nature of the service provision on a case-by-case basis, particularly in terms of duration, frequency, periodicity and continuity.

Written declaration

Are you working as an estate agent on a temporary and occasional basis in Belgium for the first time? You must inform the Executive Chamber by means of a written declaration in advance. You must provide information on your insurance cover or other means of personal or group protection that give you professional liability.

You must renew this declaration once a year, if you intend to provide temporary and occasional services in Belgium during the year in question. You can provide the declaration by any means.

When providing services for the first time or in the event of a material change in the situation set out in the documents, you must also provide the following documents:

  • proof of nationality;
  • a declaration certifying that:
    • you are legally established in a Member State;
    • you work as an estate agent there;
    • when the declaration was issued, you were not subject to any ban on practising, even temporarily;
  • proof of your professional qualifications;
  • if the profession is not regulated in your original Member State, any kind of proof that you have practised the activities in question for at least one year during the last ten years.

You may provide the declaration to the Executive Chamber by post or email.
