Practice area Tenancy Law and Lease of Land

The Tenancy Law and Lease of Land department is formed by a group of lawyers that focuses specifically on tenancy law and agricultural tenancy law and all associated aspects. This specialism has given us access to extensive expertise in this area of law, and this experience enables us to be of service to other clients.

We act for a range of clients, such as project developers, asset managers, housing associations, brokers, retailers, public authorities and healthcare institutions.

These are just some of the aspects that we would be pleased to assist you with:

  • Tenancy agreements
  • Proceedings to terminate tenancy agreements
  • Rent adjustments (increases)
  • Protection against eviction
  • Substitution and subletting
  • Service costs
  • Compensation for demolition and realisation of zoning plans
  • Defects, maintenance, renovations
  • Rent and insolvency
  • Charging-on of long-term investments
  • Approval procedures or non-standard clauses
  • Lease of land

Clear contracts

Tenancy law is not always unambiguous and clear. For example, when is a rule mandatory, and when are you not allowed to amend the contract to the disadvantage of the tenant? And on which points is a rental agreement not binding? Does tenancy law raise questions for you? As specialists in tenancy law, we know the pitfalls that exist, but also the opportunities. We assist you with clearly drafted contracts that minimise the risk of disputes. Or we can help you with the formulation of a purchase option clause or a clause for periodic rent adjustment. Naturally, everything is tailored to your specific tenancy situation.

Our knowledge is your knowledge

We keep our professional knowledge up to date and follow developments closely. A number of us are members of the Dutch Association of Landlord and Tenant Law Practitioners (Vereniging van Huurrechtadvocaten, VHA). For our part, we transfer knowledge to third parties, such as via publications in journals, which can be found on our website. In addition, some of our colleagues are editors of Cremers Huurecht, a publication containing all statutory regulations and case law in this area. This is how we share our knowledge with others.
