54.7. The first sale of a dwelling cannot be made to any person other than the lessee unless it was first proposed to the lessee at the same price and on the same terms and conditions as those agreed with the other person. The offer to sell must conform to the model described in Schedule II and be accompanied with the expert’s report and the information circular.
The lessee must, within one month after receiving the offer to sell, inform the owner in writing of his decision to accept or refuse the offer; otherwise, the lessee is deemed to have refused the offer.
If the deed of sale is not signed within two months after the acceptance of the offer or within any longer period agreed by the parties, the owner may sell the dwelling without being required to offer it anew to the lessee, unless the deed of sale was not signed for a reason beyond the lessee’s control.
