Tenancy Contract Law

6 ECTs / Semester / Portuguese

The course focuses mainly on offering the student substantial knowledge on tenancy law, including not only the constitution and effects of the contract but also its crisis (consisting namely of non-payment of the rent by the tenant) and the judicial and extra-judicial mechanisms for overcoming it. The student is also expected to learn about jurisprudence whithin this specific domain. At the end of the course the student should be able to solve hypothetical problems, being able to identify the applicable rules of law and construing upon these.
Moreover, it is intended that the student develops or acquires the ability to critically analyse problems and solutions within these contents, namely in what respects the position of Portuguese tenancy law within the broader picture of the European Union Member-States' tenancy laws.
