In the context of the epidemiological situation caused by the disease COVID-19, Law 4-C / 2020
of 6th April was approved, which establishes an exceptional regime for situations of delay in
the payment of rent due in urban housing and non-housing lease agreements.
This Law aims to minimize the impact on the household economy caused by the extraordinary
measures that have been implemented to combat the pandemic caused by Coronavirus.
The state of emergency imposed on the 18th of March and extended on the 2nd of April led to
the creation of support in several sectors, including the real estate market, namely renting.
As such, this exceptional regime was approved, which aims to protect those involved in rental
contracts who are in a situation of economic need resulting from the measures taken to
combat the epidemiological outbreak.
For a better framing of Law 4-C / 2020, SCA Advogados made a brief summary of the essential points.
