Dutch law on lease has different rules for office space and retail space, and for rental agreements for living space.

Landlord-tenant law in the Netherlands gives the landlord and the tenant a number of legally determined obligations. These legally determined rules are called the mandatory laws and apply when no diverging rules have been established. Tenants are very well protected under Dutch law.
