Prevention is better than cure

To give tenancy agreements a good and desired substance, guidance with the drafting of a tenancy agreement and the assessing of one by one of our tenancy law lawyers is recommended.  Several subjects for regimes (including housing) are prescribed as mandatory, which limits the freedom of contract. The Dutch Civil Code also contains regimes for business and office spaces and various protective regulations that are semi-mandatory laws. These are not enforced by operation of law (the court does not officially test) but have to be explicitly invoked by the party that would be protected.  With a timely involvement of one of our tenancy law lawyers, your rights will be protected and invoked where necessary. This helps you prevent unnecessary problems/damages.
