Temporary rental of holiday apartments
Renting a holiday apartment to e.g. Holidaymakers are considered leases for temporary use within the meaning of § 549 Abs. 2 No. 1 BGB. The absolute maximum for such a rental is one year. However, this only applies if the reason for renting by the renter is only temporary. If it is intended to rent a holiday home for several months, then it is necessary to include the purpose of leasing (eg leasing to an employee with a fixed-term contract) in the contract. Otherwise, a normal lease arises with the provisions for protection against dismissal, etc.
