C-50 - Act to promote conciliation between lessees and property-owners

Full text
50. Any sale of furnishings to a lessee by a person other than the owner or a preceding lessee, as a condition or consideration for the lease of a house or as a means of obtaining such lease, is illegal and the lessee may have it annulled upon an ordinary action before the competent court. Neither the illegality of the sale nor the annulment thereof shall entail the nullity or annulment of the lease, notwithstanding article 1080 of the Civil Code.
Such action is prescribed by ninety days from the taking possession, by the lessee, of the rented house.
