Thus, in rental law in the Netherlands, there are three separate legal provisions for commercial, retail and rental contracts for housing. All three types of leasing can be for a fixed term or for an indefinite period. Other: Other commercial spaces may consist of most other non-residential properties. Self-storage facilities, medical clinics and hotels are examples. Commercial premises The commercial premises regime also includes the protection of tenants. In addition to limiting the grounds for termination, the rental of commercial space is subject to strict rental conditions. Landlords and tenants can agree on certain terms such as 2, 5, 10 or 20 years. However, if a lease with a term of more than two years is concluded, it is automatically converted into a 5-year lease. Such a period is automatically extended by five years under the law if the contract is not terminated. Rental contracts are fully regulated by Articles 7:232-7:282 of the Dutch Civil Code.

Dutch rental law does not limit foreign persons, legal or natural, to renting real estate in the Netherlands. In the case of offices, factories and other buildings that are not covered by special rules, the parties are free to agree on the contractual conditions.
