Article 687. Termination of a tenancy agreement.

1. The tenant has the right, with the consent of other citizens permanently residing with him, at any time to terminate the tenancy agreement with a written warning to the landlord for three months. 2. A tenancy agreement may be terminated in a court of law at the request of the landlord in the following cases: failure of the tenant to pay for housing for six months, if the contract does not provide a longer period, and for short-term employment in case of failure to pay the fee more than two times after the payment period established by the contract; destruction or damage to the dwelling by the tenant or other citizens for whose actions he is responsible. By decision of the court, the tenant may be given a period of not more than a year to eliminate the violations that served as the basis for the termination of the contract for renting residential premises. If within the period determined by the court, the tenant does not eliminate the violations committed or does not take all the necessary measures to eliminate them, the court, upon the repeated appeal of the landlord, decides to terminate the tenancy agreement. At the same time, at the request of the employer, the court in the decision on termination of the contract may postpone the execution of the decision for a period not exceeding one year. 3. A tenancy agreement may be terminated in a court of law at the request of any of the parties to the agreement: if the room ceases to be suitable for permanent residence, as well as in case of its emergency condition; in other cases stipulated by the housing legislation. 4. If the tenant of a dwelling or other citizens for whose actions he is responsible use the dwelling for an inappropriate purpose or systematically violates the rights and interests of neighbors, the landlord can warn the tenant about the need to eliminate the violation. If the tenant or other citizens for whose actions he is responsible continue to use the dwelling for other purposes or violate the rights and interests of the neighbors after the warning, the landlord has the right to terminate the tenancy agreement in court. In this case, the rules provided for in the fourth paragraph of clause 2 of this article shall apply.
