Corona legislation to extend temporary rental contracts

22 april 2020

The government has passed emergency legislation protecting fixed-term tenants from eviction. During the covid19 crisis fixed term rental contracts can be extended for another fixed term. This emergency legislation applies to fixed term leases ending between April 1st 2020 and June 30th 2020. If the covid19 crisis continues the legislation could be extended.

Tenants can ask their landlords for a temporary extension of their lease and landlords should grant this extension. In a few situations the temporary extension might not apply: for example if before April 1st arrangements have already been made for sale, demolition or renovation of the house; if the landlord needs to move into the house; or for nuisance tenants.
