Purchase agreements, contracts for work and services and contracts for work and materials

Lawyer Contract law in general: The contract of sale is about the seller handing over the object of sale to the buyer and giving him ownership of the object. In return, the buyer is obliged to pay the purchase price. A contract for work and services according to § 651 of the German Civil Code (BGB) is a contract for the delivery of movable goods to be manufactured or produced. The object of the contract for work and services is, according to § 631 para. 2 BGB, a result to be achieved through work or service. In practice, difficulties often arise in distinguishing between these different types of contract. These demarcation difficulties can affect, among other things, the correct choice of warranty rights. This is where an experienced contract law attorney can help. Therefore, let us advise you on these questions.

Leasing law

Lawyer Contract Law: The term "leasing" comes from the English word "to lease" (rent, lease). In German law, the leasing contract is not separately regulated by law. According to the case law of the Federal Court of Justice, the leasing contract is essentially governed by the provisions of tenancy law. Both movable and immovable assets can be considered as leased assets. In the case of movable assets, a great deal is leased nowadays. The most common case of leasing in practice is car leasing. In the case of finance leasing, a triangular relationship exists between the lessee, the leasing company and the supplier. If you have any problems concerning leasing law, please feel free to contact us at any time.
