When letting or leasing a property to a private or commercial tenant or leaseholder, a large number of legal provisions must be observed. Due in particular to ongoing changes in the law and a large number of court decisions that have to be taken into account, advice from a competent lawyer is almost essential.

The tenancy agreement regulates the transfer of use of an object for a period of time in return for payment. Disputes in tenancy law can arise, for example, from rent claims, service charge invoices, as well as rent increases, cancellations or rental defects. A distinction must be made in particular between residential and commercial tenancy law. There is special legal protection for tenants of residential property.

The special feature of a lease agreement is that the lessee can claim not only the use but also the income from the property. Many of the provisions of tenancy law apply to the lease agreement, but there are also some differences.

We work closely with our clients to help them draw up or review rental or lease agreements. By using a good contract, disputes can be prevented in advance. In this respect, it makes sense to seek legal advice at an early stage.
