When you buy an (old) house, you buy it in the condition it is then in. This means including all visible and invisible defects. If it turns out that there is a defect after the purchase, this is in principle at the buyer's risk. This sounds logical.

On 1 July 2016, the Dutch House for Whistleblowers Act (Wet Huis voor Klokkenluiders) came into effect. Pursuant to this act, employees who have a suspicion of abuse within the organisation for which they work can turn to the House for Whistleblowers if the employer does not have a (adequate) procedure in place or the employer has failed to handle an internal report correctly.

The position of the old-age pensioner has changed with the introduction of the WWZ (Wet Werk en Zekerheid - Work and Security Act) on 1 July 2015, which means there is little to no employment protection for this employee. Subsequently, on 1 January 2016, the Wet Werken na de AOW-gerechtigde leeftijd (Working beyond AOW entitlement Act) came into effect. This act limits the obligations of the employer in the case of illness of an old-age pensioner.
