Dutch term or phrase: inrichting en inventaris
In a commercial lease (huurovereenkomst kantoorruimte en andere bedrijfsruimte), I am not sure how to translate "inrichting en inventaris" because Jurlex gives quite a few different translations for these words, and the words given in English are quite different in meaning.

Examples from Jurlex:

inventaris =
fixtures (and fittings)
(company) equipment
stock, fixtures and fittings

inventaris en inrichting =
furniture and fixtures
stock, fixtures and fittings

inrichting =
furnishings and fittings

Examples of these words in my text:

Huurder zal het gehuurde voorzien en voorzien houden van voldoende inrichting en inventaris.

Huurder heeft de voorafgaande schriftelijke toestemming van verhuurder nodig voor het geheel of gedeeltelijk
veranderen van de inrichting of gedaante van het gehuurde.

Indien voor het gehuurde een hogere dan normale premie van verzekering voor opstal of inventaris en goederen aan verhuurder of andere huurders in rekening wordt

Thank you in advance for any help.

fixtures and fittings

the first "inrichtingen en inventaris" is the fixtures and fittings of the building/reted space.
The second 'inventaris' is the list of insured contents, which could include the fixtures and fittings refered to earlier.

agree  Christopher Smith: absolutely, though some flexibility will be needed in some of the quoted sentences.

  -> Thanks, Joost

disagree  xxxjarry: The bit "Huurder zal het gehuurde voorzien en voorzien houden van voldoende inrichting en inventaris" STRONGLY suggests that no fixtures are involved in the situation under review.

  -> Thanks Jarry, I don't know either, but I think we are talking about commercial property in which modular office walls, etc. could be involved.

agree  Julia Thompson: Fixtures and fittings, without a doubt. Furnishings could also be used for the second part.
13 hrs
  -> Thanks, Julia.

disagree  Lawyer-Linguist: sorry Dave, the distinction may seem subtle but took up a large part of my second year legal studies many moons ago, is not fixtures at all which have already become immovable in law unlike fittings which can be removed and the property restored.

  -> Thanks, Deborah.I bow to your training - then the second inventaris would still be the list of insured contents, except for the fixtures?

All properties have a proper modern kitchen with the following minimum equipment;- cooker with a minimum of three heating rings or plates, grill, oven, fridge, kettle, storage cupboards, proper work surfaces.

There is sufficient crockery, cooking utensils, storage space, seating etc for the stated number of people.

Bathrooms. All properties have at least one bathroom, with bath and/or shower, toilet and wash-hand basin as minimum. Many have more than one bathroom and/or additional showers, cloakrooms etc, and all bathrooms are of good quality. 10% of our cottages now have 1 bathroom for every bedroom.

neutral  Dave Calderhead: 'inventaris' means what the user wants it to mean lke Humpty Dumpty, sometimes it is office equipment, sometimes inventory or stocks (instead of 'voorraad'), depending on context, and as I said, it is the list of insured contents. :-)>

  -> But it never means 'fixture(s)': A chattel that has been annexed to land or a building so as to become a part of it, in accordance with the maxim "quicquid plantatur solo, solo cedit"

agree  Lawyer-Linguist: it is not fixtures purely because in law these are already part of the leased premises (they have become immovable) - emphasis here is on what has been provided additionally, is insured and MOVABLE. Fixtures are NOT movable (grrr!)
