Urgency and repairs

While a tenant has the right to the peaceable enjoyment of the leased property, the landlord also has the right to ensure the same.

Should urgent and necessary repairs arise, a landlord may require the tenant to temporarily vacate the leased property. One should not forget that the whole is subject to the appreciation of the judge, each case being unique. Nevertheless, such a situation entitles the tenant to an indemnity payable by the landlord.

Furthermore, a landlord must inform the tenant of the urgent and necessary repairs as soon as possible.

A tenant is entitled to proceed himself to conduct the necessary repairs and claim the reimbursement of the costs should the landlord neglect to proceed with the necessary and urgent repairs.
