Full text
23. Except in the cases of sections 39 and 56, no lessee shall be evicted, by reason of the expiration of his lease, from the house in which he is living, if he obtains a prolongation of such lease and pays the rent exigible thereunder in conformity with the following provisions.
However, in the case of the lease of a room and if the lessor of such room is himself lessee of the house, the lessee of such room may also be evicted when the lessor’s lease ends, without prejudice to his recourses; for the application of this paragraph, a lease tacitly renewed, renewed or extended is not deemed to have ended.
