Terminating a retail lease for own occupation?

A retail lease is protected by Belgian law providing security for the retailer for a duration of 9-18-27 years. However it is possible to cancel for own use.

If you rent a property with a retail lease it is possible to terminate a lease every 3 years with 12 months notice if you plan using the property yourself or for your kin.

There are however important rules and exceptions to consider.
