The landlord must make available the leased land to the tenant as agreed. The land must be suitable for the intended purpose both at commencement of the lease and during the term. Delay in making the property available may entitle the tenant to rescind the lease agreement, to reduction of the rent, or to become released from the payment of rent. In addition, the landlord is liable for damage incurred by the tenant.
If the property cannot be used for its purpose, the tenant may also be entitled to request reparation of the property or even repair it at the landlord’s expense. The tenant may also be entitled to a reduction of the rent or to be released from the payment of rent. If, on the other hand, the land becomes more valuable, for example, as a consequence of planning or natural phenomena, the landlord may be entitled to increase the rent.
Unless otherwise agreed, the tenant has a duty to ensure that the leased land, and the landlord’s buildings and other property on such land remains in good state of repair during the term of the lease. The tenant is permitted to use the land only for agreed purposes. Felling of timber or extracting gravel are not permitted use, unless otherwise agreed. Upon termination of the tenancy, the tenant is liable for damages incurred due to the tenant’s breach of his/her maintenance duties.
