Problems with a lease?

In practice, entrepreneurs receive less protection than consumers and need legal advice more quickly.

As an entrepreneur, you can rent two types of business premises: office/storage space or catering/retail space – they do not fall under the same tenancy law rules! Therefore, it is very important that a real estate lawyer checks your lease contract before you sign anything.

Termination of rental agreement

When it comes to termination of a lease, different protection rules apply for different types of premises.

For example, the tenant of retail space is better protected by law than the tenant of office space. Do you want to give notice or have you received notice? Please contact us and we will let you know what the possibilities are.

Eviction of the rented property

In addition, a landlord can request eviction through the courts if he believes that the termination of the rental agreement must take place sooner and the applicable notice period cannot be waited (e.g. in case of rent arrears or nuisance). In that case, you will receive a summons for a summary proceedings hearing, a procedure in which the landlord requests the court to terminate the rental agreement concluded with you and to oblige you to vacate the rented property. If you receive such a summons, it is very important to immediately call in a lawyer to prevent the landlord from vacating the property.

Tenancy law has never been as high on many entrepreneurs' agendas as during the Covid pandemic and the government-mandated closures of the hospitality, retail and cultural sectors.

International Private Law (IPL) is an area of law that plays an important role in cross-border (international) matters. This area of law determines, among other things, which international court is competent, which law is applicable, but also whether a foreign judgment is eligible for recognition and enforcement in the Netherlands and, of course, vice versa.
Business law regulates the delicate balance between the entrepreneur's freedom to conduct his business as he sees fit and the legal regulation of his activities - their rights and obligations.
