Tenancy Law

Anyone wanting to rent or let a property is not only bound by the agreements made with the other party, but is also subject to the legal conditions attached to the mandatory security of tenure. We assist clients in drawing up and negotiating to conclusion future-proof leases, among other things. As the leases are generally long-term agreements, the parties concerned have to take into account a long time horizon.

We also advise clients and litigate on their behalf in the matter of lease terminations, rent adjustments, redevelopments, approval for deviating provisions, substitutions, protection against eviction and defects. Our services also incorporate advice regarding the law of obligations as it relates to tenancy law, including sale and purchase.

Our clients benefit from our extensive experience in the renting and letting of commercial premises, 290 space (retail commercial premises) and 230a space as well as residential accommodation. We act in particular on behalf of investors, developers, housing associations, tenants from the industrial and logistics sectors, municipalities, retailers and healthcare institutions.


We assist clients among other things in:

  • The operation of shopping areas and centres, by drawing up leases and litigating on tenancy law-related matters, such as renovations, lease terminations, substitutions, approval for deviating provisions, subletting. We are also frequently engaged to assist in the sale and purchase of shopping centres;
