Legislation

Article 29

Article 29 stipulates that:

(1) In the case of the forced eviction of a person sentenced to vacate the premises they occupy, the personal property located in such premises shall be transported, at the cost of the evicted person, who must advance payment for the transfer, to the place of their choosing.

(2) If the evicted person does not designate any place of storage, or if they refuse or are unable to advance payment for transport, the court officer in charge of executing the eviction will have the personal property transported, at the cost of the evicted person, advanced by the municipal office for the place of eviction, should this be requested by the officer, to the premises as specified in Article 30. (…)

Article 30

Article 30 stipulates that:

(1) The municipality shall ensure that the personal property of the person evicted under the conditions outlined in Article 29 (2) is stored in an appropriate location. It may destroy any perishable, harmful or dangerous goods, and otherwise refuse to store goods that would be difficult to keep or would involve extraordinary costs. (...)

(3) (…) the stored property must be removed within three months from the date of initial storage (…)

(4) If this has not been done by the end of this three-month period, the municipal office will send the evicted person a letter of summons by registered mail, notifying them to remove their property. If, after another three months, the evicted person has not responded to the summons, the municipal office may send the evicted person a final registered letter of summons, notifying them to remove the property within 15 days, and that, should they fail to do so, it would be irrevocably presumed that the evicted person has waived the right to reclaim the stored property. The municipal office will then be authorised to sell the property located in the premises where it is stored, or to otherwise dispose of it.
