Every agreement which deals with the situation that a lessor gives a certain item to a lessee for which a lessee does something in return falls under the scope of tenancy law. For example, the agreement can be about a house, a living accommodation or a business premises. The rental of a bicycle, a car, a book, tools, et cetera also fall within the scope of tenancy law.

The Dutch law system does not have detailed rules about how parties should conclude an agreement. This means that a valid agreement about renting an item can be a written agreement but also an oral one.

In order to speak of a rental agreement,the lessee should do something in return. In most cases this is a monthly payment to the lessor for the use of the item, but other quid pro quos are also possible. For example, a lessee may also agree with the lessor that he will carry out maintenance on the property prior to its use.

Concluding a rental agreement seems a piece of cake but appearances can be deceiving. The Dutch tenancy law system includes multiple rules which should be obeyed by the lessor and the lessee. Which rules apply depends on the item that is being rented. The rules for renting a house, for example, are different then the rules for renting a business premises.
