What do I have to deal with in a shop-in-shop agreement?

In addition to arrangements regarding the amount of usage fee/lease, the term of the agreement and how it should be terminated, there are other important matters the operator of the main store and the operator of the shop-in-shop have to agree on. Think, for instance, of arrangements about the design, personnel and maintenance of the shop-in-shop.

  • How can the rent for retail space be adjusted?

    The law provides for a comprehensive rent review scheme, in addition to the annual indexation from the lease agreement. The landlord can apply this arrangement for rent increase, the tenant for rent reduction. The rent can be adjusted at the end of the agreed term of the lease or when at least 5 years have elapsed since the last rent adjustment.

    The new rent is related to the average rent paid in the previous 5 years for comparable local premises. Experts give advice on this. If the parties cannot agree on the new rent, they can ask the court to establish a new rent.

    In the rental agreement, the parties may deviate from this statutory regulation. The tenant and the landlord may also agree on an interim adjustment of the rent by mutual agreement.

  • Can I exercise my profession / business in the property I found?

    That depends on the zoning plan and possibly on the leasehold conditions and lease agreement. The municipal zoning plan lays down which use is permitted on a particular plot of land, for instance, residential, retail, business, office or social use.

    Deviation from the zoning plan is sometimes possible with an environmental permit. This way, your company can still be realised in the building you found.

    So have an expert assess the zoning plan before you buy or rent a property.
