Office buildings in the Netherlands will have to be energy efficient from 2023 onwards and must at least be provided with energy label C. Without this label the building may not be used.
Office buildings, including Embassy premises, in the Netherlands will have to be energy efficient from 2023 onwards and must at least be provided with energy label C. Without this label neither the owner nor the tenant may use the building.
This is particularly relevant if you own or rent office space in a non-monumental building. The tenant can be forced to cooperate if measures are required to obtain energy label C.
According to the law, the Owner is primarily responsible for the measures and the costs for the modification of the building to obtain energy label C. The owner may no longer use the building himself nor allow the tenant to use the building if it does not have at least energy label C by 2023. In addition, the owner risks a high fine.
The tenant must give the landlord the opportunity to take these measures. If the tenant does not cooperate, the landlord is entitled to terminate the lease.
