Do you own a business premises, office building or a retail space and do you want to rent this space out? The agreements you make about this are recorded in a rental agreement.

Drafting an international lease agreement

When you rent out a business space, generally, you have a lot of freedom to determine under which conditions and how you rent this space. The disadvantage is that your rental agreement may be too limited, which can lead to discussions or conflicts in the future. Our specialised lawyers can help you to draw up a legally strong lease agreement that matches your specific wishes and business situation. This way you can avoid any unnecessary risks.

Advice about international rental agreements

Have you had, or are about to have, a discussion with your tenant about your rental agreement? If you need advice, you can always contact our international lawyers. They always give clear, fair advice about your situation.


When leasing commercial space internationally, it is important to supply documents, including contracts, in both your language and the language of your landlord. English is the common language for international business, so it may be that documents are provided in English as well. However, to avoid anything being 'lost in translation' it is advisable to have contracts translated by a native legal professional. It is also highly recommended to stipulate in the contract which language takes precedent should a conflict arise.

For example, in the Czech Republic, international documents should also include the correct identification of the company including their registration number, as well as the name, function and signatory of the agency. Documents should also be stamped and signed. In France, it is preferable for all documents to be provided in French to avoid contesting of the content should a problem arise. However, it is not mandatory to do so, and the contract will still be valid even if written in a foreign language.
