10 typical national cases (from Court decisions):

1. Tenant's liability for non-consented works on a rented place: A tenant built a new WC and a corridor without the landlord's permission. Consequences: the landlord suited the tenant based on breach of the contract and asked for damages. Court decision: the contract was resolved and the tenant was liable for damages.
http://www.dgsi.pt/jstj.nsf/954f0ce6ad9dd8b980256b5f003fa814/853822250282e066802579c700525892?OpenDocument&Highlight=0,arrendamento

2. Landlord's liability for repairs needed on the rented place: A tenant asked the landlord to repair the walls, the floor and the electric wiring system of the house, which had been damaged by leakage from a water pipe. As the landlord did not repair the house, the tenant hired a third person to do that job and suited the landlord to get compensation for the money paid. Court decision: the court decided in favour of the tenant's pretention.

3. The tenant does not pay the rent: The tenant did not pay the rent for 3 months. The landlord suited him to get the resolution of the contract and the tenant's eviction.

4. Increasing the rent in old contracts: A contract was made in 1980 and therefore the tenant paid a low rent. In 2006 a new law entitled the landlord to increase the rent up to 4% of the value of the premises. The landlord asked the tenant verbally to pay the new rent. The tenant paid the updated rent for 6 months and he went back to paying the old value again because the law says the landlord has to use a registered letter. The landlord suited the tenant based on "venire contra factum proprio". Court decision: the court decided that the landlord and the tenant had got an agreement about the new rent and therefore the tenant was obliged to pay that rent.

5.Absent tenant. Mental illness. A tenant lived alone and suffered from a mental illness. For that reason she went to live with a relative for long periods but kept her belongings in the rented house, which she returned to occasionally. The law says the landlord can resolve the contract if the tenant is absent for more than 1 year unless there is a very strong reason not to live in the rented place (e.g. to be in a hospital). The landlord suited the tenant based on her absence for more than 1 year. Court decision: the court decided to resolve the contract as the reason for the tenant's absence was not reversible. (i.e. not temporary) http://www.dgsi.pt/jtrl.nsf/33182fc732316039802565fa00497eec/5811438e9594ed71802579bf00584644?OpenDocument&Highlight=0,arrendamento

6. Death of the tenant with an old contract. A contract was made in 1970. A tenant's daughter had lived with him since 1986 in the rented place. The tenant died in November 2006. In July 2006 a new law was enacted and denied the right of the descendents to continue the contract if they are more than 26 years old (this rule applies only to contracts done before July 2006). The tenant's daughter went to the court and asked for a right of transmission as she had been living in the rented place for more than 20 years. Court decision: the court denied her the right to continue the contract and decided that she had to leave the rented place.

7. Contract made verbally after July 2006. The contract was made verbally in January 2007. The law enacted in July 2006 says that a contract which lasts for more than 6 months should be recorded in signed writing. Two months later the tenant stopped paying the rent. The landlord went to the court against the tenant saying the contract was null and void for lack of legal formalities. Court decision: the court decided that the contract was null and void and consequently the tenant should be evicted and he should pay the rent for the time he had used the place.

8. Landlord's right to terminate the contract by specific notice in old contracts. The contract was made in 1975. At that time the landlord did not have the right to terminate the contract by specific notice. In 2006 a new law was enacted which gave the landlord the right to terminate a contract by specific notice unless for contracts made before 1990. In 2010 the landlord gave specific notice to the tenant to terminate the contract in 2011. As the tenant did not leave the rented place the landlord went to the court to get the tenant evicted. Court decision: the court denied the landlord's right to terminate the contract as it had been made in 1975. http://www.dgsi.pt/jtrp.nsf/c3fb530030ea1c61802568d9005cd5bb/221e389c6d1ea37c80257a13003b06f4?OpenDocument&Highlight=0,arrendamento

9. The contract expires when an old building has to be demolished. The contract was made in 1965. The landlord had never done the needed repairs to keep the house in good condition. The Municipality order the landlord to demolish the house. The tenant refused to leave the rented place as the degradation of the house was landlord's responsibility. The landlord went to the court asking for termination of the contract. Court decision: the court decided that the contract had been expired by the Municipality order and the tenant had to vacate.

10. Contract resolution based on tenant's bad behaviour. The tenant and his relatives repeatedly caused a disturbance in the neighbourhood. The Police were called and seized illegal guns in the rented apartment. The landlord suited the tenant based on the breach of the contract. Court decision: the court resolved the contract and ordered the tenant to leave the rented property.
