A leasing contract is an agreement establishing mutual obligations between parties regarding use and enjoyment of the benefits of a non-consumable property for a specified time or until notice, in consideration of the price the lessee undertakes to pay.
The lessor does not have to be the owner of the property in question. However, the lessor will be liable for any damages arising from failure to consign the leased property to the lessee.
Distinctions between lease contracts can be made based on whether the leased property is movable or immovable, whether it provides a product or not, or whether the leasing period is definite or indefinite.
Domicile and roofed workspace leasing contracts are among the most commonly practices leasing contract types. Here, the term domicile is defined as a space fulfilling the need of accommodation and private living of a person, and spaces like caravans, sheds, boats, etc. are also deemed as domiciles if they fulfil the need of accommodation and private living of a person. Private law provisions applicable for domiciles and roofed workspaces will also apply in regard of disputes related to leasing contracts of such spaces.
