Safety First…

When viewing a rental property, have you ever taken a close look at how safe (or unsafe) it really is?

Expats tend to assume that safety regulations are the same all over the world, but Holland unfortunately stands out as rather lax when it comes to home security. The Dutch are simply used to their steep stairs without a railing, sliding windows on top floors without any safety bars, and gas boilers with no CO detector in sight. The author illustrates her point using a house viewing she made with one of her expat clients, Suzy and her toddler Sam.
