THE LEASE AGREEMENT IN LUXEMBOURGISH LAW (NEW EDITION 2020)
RESIDENTIAL LEASE – THE NEW COMMERCIAL LEASE AND OTHER PROFESSIONAL LEASES – HOUSESHARING AND AIRBNB 

The signing of a lease agreement binds the owner of a premises to the tenant who occupies it, with clearly defined rights and obligations.
Targeted at both a professional (judges, lawyers, real estate agents, construction managers) and a private (owners and tenants) audience, the author presents his first update of his book which has become in a few years the reference work in Luxembourg for all lease contracts, whether residential or professional.

For the first time, it also offers a legal analysis of the legal framework applicable to Airbnb and Housesharing, and also reviews the new provisions applicable to the commercial lease since 2018. The author’s goal is to provide clear and legally detailed answers to all questions that all parties may have regarding residential, but also professional, and more particularly commercial, leases.

The book is not only targeted at professionals, but also at individuals who will find a practical, compact guide at the end of the book, allowing both owners and tenants, but also real estate agencies or construction managers, to quickly navigate through the questions they may have.

Referring to numerous recent judgments, most of which have never been published, the author delivers a very complete and detailed analysis of the current state of Luxembourgish law in terms of lease agreements.

Two years after the publication of the new legal framework applicable to commercial leases, the book answers many questions that seem unclear.

Construction law in Luxembourg

In this book, the author paints a complete and current picture of construction law in Luxembourg. On the basis of an in-depth analysis of the service agreement, it examines the obligations of the manufacturer and the client, followed by a detailed analysis of the manufacturer’s liability regime.
The book then analyses the sale of a property that is yet to be built, which also refers to the legal framework governing the liability of manufacturers.
Particular attention is paid to the liability of the manufacturer in its relations with third parties, whether in terms of neighbourhood disturbances or the right of way.
Before finishing his work with a complete analysis of the obligations and responsibility of architects and engineers, he examines the characteristics of the sales contract with regards to real estate.

The real estate professions under Luxembourg law

The real estate sector has experienced rapid development in recent years.
At the same time, new legislative provisions affecting the real estate professions have entered into force, notably the law of July 9, 2004 which has radically changed the conditions of establishment in this sector.
In addition, legal problems have arisen – notably with regard to the status of the real estate agent – which have given rise to a large body of case law, which is sometimes contradictory. However, no work has yet been devoted to these recent developments. It is this void that this book intends to fill.
