OP acts for medical staff

One of the best known players in the Brussels residential market has decided to play a role in relieving some of the problems being caused by the current Covid 19 epidemic. Guillaume Pinte, Managing director of the Office des Propriétaires (OP) has observed that there are a number of apartments on the company’s books (under management for third parties) destined for short term rental, and which are currently unoccupied. These are often destined for ex-pats for periods of around three months.

Faced with the current situation whereby some of the first line medical responders (nurses, doctors, ambulance personnel and others) are finding themselves excluded from their shared homes, living in fear of contaminating their families in the evening, or faced with long journeys home after gruelling days of work, Guillaume Pinte has contacted the owners of some of the unoccupied apartments to see whether these could be used as temporary accommodation for such people. The response has been positive, and the OP is now in a position to provide accommodation for 150 persons, in close proximity to the major hospitals of the region (Chirec, Titeca, CHU Brugman, Cliniques de l’Europe, Saint Luc, Erasme, CHU Saint Pierre...). The apartments in question are fully equipped and the costs allied to this temporary accommodation are being assumed by the OP.

If any Pro-Realestate reader knows of medical personnel in need of this service, they can advise the person concerned to contact Louis De Hertogh on 0496 28 06 39 from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm or by e-mail : ldh@op.be.
