Rental contract

The request was successful.

Dear European Environment Agency,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

The rental contract(s) of the building(s) the agency occupies

Yours faithfully,

PS: I have noticed that European institutions sometimes send both a digital and a paper version by registered mail of FOI responses. Please only send paper versions of your communication if you do not intend to send a digital copy. The physical mail always reaches me later than e-mail, so paper versions are environmentally wasteful and somewhat inefficient.

Dear Mrs Rygaard,

Thanks for your reply. I have made similar requests to other EU agencies, and received the relevant contracts. Their landlords apparently saw no objections. It is also somewhat of a mystery to me what type of information could be seen as confidential. Moreover, it is a disproportionate measure to decide not to disclose the entire document, when the concerns of the lessor could be addressed by blacking out some personal information.

I believe there is an overriding public interest in the disclosure of the contracts, as the rent is being paid with EU taxpayer money. The document to which you refer, does not contain information on for example termination clauses.

Yours sincerely,
Peter
