Contract Law

In the Netherlands verbal agreements are just as valid as written contracts, although it can be difficult to prove a verbal agreement. For some types of agreement a written contract is mandatory.

Dutch law also includes the possibility that contractual obligations are not recognised under the law itself. An agreement to break the law, for instance, is not valid and cannot therefore be enforced by a judge. Such a situation seldom arises in professional contracts between businesses, but nevertheless it is advisable to seek legal advice if there is a lot at stake.

Rental and Property Law

We are specialists in matters of property. We help tenants and landlords, owners, sellers and other interested parties.

Dutch law provides strong protection for tenants of independent living space. A landlord cannot simply terminate a rental contract. Termination due to breach of contract can only be determined by a judge.

Amsterdam is a popular location. Many city residents are tempted to rent out their properties via websites. However, the city council has placed limits on this practice. We help property owners with the rules and assist when a fine is imposed.
