German term or phrase: Einhaltung der Frist
A tenant has a 'Vormietrecht' over the area adjoining his in an office complex. He must declare by a certain date whether he wishes to take this up - the sentence I am having difficulty with is 'Fuer die Einhaltung der Frist ist der Zugang bei der Vermietern erforederlich und ausschlaggebend'

Explanation:
Basic meaning:
eine Frist einhalten = meet a deadline

You said you were having trouble translating the sentence. I suppose you have the literal meaning (?):

For observance of the time limit receipt of [the declaration] by the lessor shall be required and decisive.

The meaning is, of course, that if the tenant wishes to take up his option, he must inform the landlord of his decision to do so in writing and in time for the landlord to receive the letter by the expiry of the stipulated period.

Explanation:
I suspect the "Zugang" is used here in the sense of "Eingang", that is, the date when the tenant's notice regarding the rental/lease of the additional area is received by the landlord is "ausschlaggebend".
