Supreme Court redefines tenant´s duties at end of lease

In a recent decision, the Supreme Court ruled on the permissibility of clauses in rent agreements requiring the tenant to repaint the leased property and refurbish the flooring at the end of the lease, as well as on contractual penalties that would apply following late handover of the leased premises at the end of the lease. The decision will affect all types of tenant and types of leased property.
