this is about the unfair terms in consumer contracts directive

there is inequality of bargaining power

one party has much more info than they other

Brusse had a residential tenancy. Jahani BV was a company which rented out buildings as its main business

there was a penalty clause of 25 euros a day for not fulfilling a certain requirement

the man then found a bill for unapdu rent and he oweed 8000 euros in penaltuies

consuemrs have no chance to influence terms drawn up in adavnce

the inequaluty is aggravated because it pertains to something neeed and this is accommodation

national courts must sever unfair terms
