Lawyer tenancy law

The rules that have been laid down regarding the rent and rental of all movable and immovable property are subject to tenancy law. We speak of renting if an agreement has been drawn up in which it is agreed that the landlord, in exchange for rent, makes a property (or part thereof) available to the tenant. Dutch tenancy law makes a distinction between different rental objects which may fall under their own regime with legal rules. For example, the rental regime for living spaces is different than for commercial spaces.

When you rent or rent out something, such as a house or business premises, this has legal consequences. Both the tenant and the landlord may be faced with issues where legal assistance is desirable. Think of non-payment, an increase in the rental price, nuisance, subletting and disputes with regard to maintenance obligations. A tenancy lawyer can also assist when the landlord is canceling the rent due to urgent personal use or with drawing up lease agreements.
