Notice given by the owner in the context of a long-term lease

In the case of a long-term lease with a tacitly renewable one-year lease (ALUR lease), the lessor may give notice to the lessee only under certain conditions; according to the law, the lessor may terminate the lease at its expiry and after having given notice.

To be regular, this notice must be sent at least three months before the expiry of the lease contract by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt.

The notice period is counted from the date of receipt of the letter of leave by the tenant and the grounds for termination of the rental contract are as follows:
  • resumption of the accommodation with a view to occupying it by himself or a person of his family;
  • sale of the accommodation;
  • serious and legitimate reason against the tenant, in particular the failure by the tenant to fulfil one of his obligations (for example: unpaid debts, neighbourhood problems).
Under penalty of nullity, the leave given by the owner must indicate the reason given and, in the event of a takeover, the name and address of the beneficiary of the takeover as well as the nature of the relationship existing between the owner and the beneficiary of the takeover.
