The diploma establishes an exceptional temporary regime preventing the eviction of tenants aged more than 65 or tenants with level of disability equal or superior to 60% living in the leased premises for more than 15 years.

In the case of lease agreements subject to this regime, termination of the lease is only possible if either the landlord or their first line descendants need the premises for their housing purposes.

This exceptional regime does not apply to cases where the lease agreements were considered terminated by a final decision of a judicial court.

The diploma enters into force on July 17, 2018 and will be in effect until March 31, 2019, which was considered as sufficient period to review the urban lease legal regime and to establish a permanent framework protecting the tenants according to their age and level of disability.
