Article 684. Preemptive right of the employer to conclude a contract for a new term.
Upon the expiration of the tenancy agreement, the tenant has the preferential right to conclude a tenancy agreement for a new term. Not later than three months before the expiration of the tenancy agreement, the landlord must offer the tenant to conclude an agreement on the same or other conditions or warn the tenant about refusing to renew the agreement due to the decision not to lease the residential space for at least a year. If the landlord has not fulfilled this obligation, and the tenant has not refused to extend the contract, the contract is considered extended on the same conditions and for the same period. When agreeing the terms of the contract, the tenant does not have the right to demand an increase in the number of persons permanently living with him under the contract of renting residential premises. If the landlord refused to extend the contract due to the decision not to rent out the premises, but within a year from the date of expiration of the contract with the tenant entered into a tenancy agreement with another person, the tenant has the right to demand recognition of such an agreement as invalid refusal to renew the contract with him.
