What is my experience with Centraal Beheer?

I have had fairly positive experiences with Centraal Beheer and regularly take out a mortgage with this provider.

Centraal Beheer has outsourced many activities to other organizations, which means I have less personal contact with the bank. It is therefore sometimes more difficult to present situations that are not standard.

In my opinion, the Leef Hypotheek is a good mortgage with many benefits and a competitive interest rate.
