To answer this question, we distinguish between commercial space within the scope of Section 7:230a of the Dutch Civil Code (office space) and commercial space within the scope of Section 7:290 of the Dutch Civil Code (shop, crafts studio and catering business). For the commercial space under 7:230a, the lessee has hardly any statutory lease protection. The option of a lease price adjustment is therefore fully dependent on the relevant agreements in the lease contract. For the commercial space under 7:290, the lessee and the lessor may turn to the district court to adjust the lease price if this is not in line with the lease prices of similar local spaces. If the lease contract was concluded for a certain term, the adjustment may not be claimed until that term has expired. In other cases, this is not possible until five years after the last adjustment of the lease price.
