Article 596. Recipient of life annuity.
1. Life annuity may be established for the period of life of a citizen transferring property against the payment of rent, or for the period of life of another citizen indicated by him. 2. It is allowed to establish life annuity in favor of several citizens, whose shares in the right to receive annuity are considered equal, unless otherwise provided by a life annuity contract. In the event of the death of one of the recipients of the rent, his share in the right to receive the rent passes to the recipients of the rent who survived, unless otherwise provided by the contract of life annuity, and in the event of the death of the last recipient of rent, the obligation to pay the rent is terminated. 3. A contract establishing a life annuity in favor of a citizen who died at the time of the conclusion of the contract shall be null and void.
