Venduehuis der Notarissen

The Venduehuis der Notarissen will officially celebrate its 200-year anniversary in 2012 as an Auction House in The Hague. Before then, public sales of properties, farms, land, and household effects were organized by the City’s Auctioneers. The auction house was established in September 1811, when The Netherlands were conquered by the French Empire and fully integrated in 1810. The Netherlands came under the administration of the French judicial system. This resulted in further public sales being held under the supervision of a Notary Public.

The Association of Notary Publics in the city of The Hague were the first in the Netherlands to establish the “Venduehuis der Notarissen”. In January 1812 the first auction was held in the present building in the Nobelstraat. The Auction house is now – and always has been – owned by the Association of Notary Publics in The Hague. However they are not the only users of the Auction House. Anyone can buy and sell items other than real estate through our Auction House. The right to buy/sell real estate lies exclusively with the Notary Publics.

Meet our experts to discover what the Venduehuis can offer you. We will be happy to advise you about appraisals and consignment, so that you are able to make the best possible decision about your valuables.
