Tenancy protection

A typical Dutch phenomenon is the comprehensive protection of tenants. Ambiguity about the termination of a lease agreement often arises from the fact that a lessor not necessarily can terminate the lease agreement; not even with due observance of the notice period. The level of protection of the tenant depends on the type of lease agreement that has been concluded. This applies both to the rental of residential accommodation and the rental of business accommodation. In addition, it is important to have clarity on questions such as who is to bear the costs of maintenance and renovation, whether subletting is possible and, if so, under what conditions, whether the lessor can enter the rented accommodation unreservedly to carry out inspections, etc.
