Priority for key workers

Vesteda is committed to helping key workers find affordable housing in their own preferred city.

Who are the keyworkers?

The municipality of Amsterdam has published a list of professions that fall under the term "keyworker": teachers in primary (special) education, teachers in secondary education (first or second grade), nurses, carers, family coaches for young people, counselors in care for the disabled, doctors, pharmacists and surgery assistants, nurse practitioners, nurse anesthetists and police officers. This list may, of course, be modified over time.



Register for an available home in De Aker through our website. Request a viewing and submit the requested documents. Such as a permanent employment contract or a temporary contract of at least 28 hours a week for a minimum of 1 year. Of course all other (income) criteria for these houses must also be met. These criteria are listed in the advertisement of the house on our website and in our rental conditions. It is unfortunately not possible for existing tenants to propose their own potential tenants for these properties.
