New law gives tenants right to ‘lifelong’ housing

Portugal’s government has approved a law giving tenants and landlords the right to establish contracts for “lifelong” housing, through the payment of an initial deposit and a monthly payment.

According to Environment Minister João Matos Fernandes, the new measure signed last week does not involve renting or owning the house.


Matos Fernandes explained that with lifelong permanence in housing, only the tenant can renounce the contract.
