Law/Patents - Law (general)
Portuguese term or phrase: relacionado/relativo
Can anyone explain to me the difference between "relacionado" and "relativo" as used in the following sentence from a legal document?

Embora o "annual membership fee" [sic] seja um rendimento *relacionado* com imóveis situados em território português, não é um rendimento *relativo* a imóveis situados em território português.

I thought the terms were pretty much synonymous, but either there's an error in the text or there's a difference I'm missing.

Many thanks
