• 1 Scope of application

The following General Rental Terms and Conditions shall apply to all rental agreements concluded between Fix Storage (lessor) and its contractual partners (lessees) for the use of storage space (rental property) for the storage of movable items (stored goods).

General terms and conditions of the tenants do not become part of the contract, unless they are expressly included by written agreement between the landlord and the tenant.

  • 2 Subject matter of the contract

The Lessor shall let the leased property to the Lessee for the exclusive purpose of storing movable property in accordance with these General Terms and Conditions of Lease.

The Lessor expressly does not assume any duty of care with regard to the items brought into the Leased Property by the Lessee, i.e. does not act as a warehouse manager or as a guardian or custodian of the items brought in by the Lessee.

  • 3 Condition of the rental object

The Lessee has inspected the leased property prior to the conclusion of the contract and, by signing the lease agreement, acknowledges that the leased property is suitable for the storage of its stored goods and is free of any identifiable defects. If the leased property proves to be unsuitable for the storage of the Lessee’s stored goods, the Lessor shall not be liable for any damage incurred by the Lessee as a result. Upon takeover, the tenant has to check the rental property again and immediately notify the landlord of any damage or contamination.

Deviations from the agreed storage area or the agreed storage volume of +/- 10% are irrelevant and do not constitute a defect of the rental object. The area or volume calculation is performed according to the external dimensions of the area or room delimited by walls and the ceiling.
