Residential tenancy agreement must be signed for a certain period of time, and the law does not prevent agreeing on the extension of the contract.
The terms of the rental agreement must comply with the existing practice in civil law circulation and they cannot be excessively short or long.
At the end of the transition period from open-ended rental agreements to fixed-term rental agreements, amendments to the law should be considered, as is the case elsewhere in foreign countries, allowing open-ended rental agreements with the right of unilateral withdrawal by either party within a reasonable period of time. Thus, the private autonomy of individuals to choose to enter into open-term residential rental agreements would not be restricted.
It is necessary to make amendments to the Transitional Provisions of the Law, setting a single end date (December 31, 2036 or another date chosen by the legislator) for the transition of open-ended rental agreements to fixed-term rental agreements.
