Can tenants do any works without notifying the property?

Contrary to the opinion, sometimes widespread, that the tenants can not do any kind of works to the rented property, the Law and especially the courts have a different criteria.

The Law of Leases provides that only the owner must be notified of the necessary works to adapt the home to the situation of the disabled: of him, his wife or one of his family. It seems, therefore, that any other type of work will require a written authorization of the owner.

In reality, judges only tend to estimate that it will be a cause of contractual termination, the works without authorization that modify the configuration of the house, the accessories of the same or that cause a decrease in the stability or security of the same and they are much more tolerant with the rest of works.
