New ruling concerning lease fees

According to a new ruling by the VwGH, a contract is treated as a fixed-term contract even if only one contracting party renounces its right of termination, while the other party is limited to a few reasons for termination, which presuppose a misconduct on the part of the tenant. This has significant consequences for the calculation of lease fees.
