TITLE VIII – OF LETTING AND HIRING

  

CHAPTER I – OF THE SEVERAL SPECIES OF CONTRACTS FOR LETTING AND HIRING

Art. 1. There are two species of contract respecting the letting out of things, to wit: 1st. The letting out of things; 2d. The letting out of labour or industry.

Art. 2. The let a thing out is a contract by which one of the parties binds himself to grant to the other the enjoyment of a thing during a certain time for a certain stipulated rent or hire to be paid to him.

Art. [3]4. To let out labour or industry is a contract by which one of the parties binds himself to do something for the other in consideration of a certain price agreed on by them both.

Art. 4. The letting out of things may be thus distinguished,
1st. Letting out houses, and moveables:
2d. Letting out praedial or country estates.

Art. 5. There are likewise several modes by which labor or personal services may be let out as will appear in another chapter.

Art. 6. In letting out things the person who lets out the thing to another is called the proprietor or lesser, and the person who takes a thing or a lease is called the lessee.
In letting out houses the person who takes the house on a lease is called the tenant, and in letting out praedial estate the lessee is usually called the farmer.

 

CHAPTER II – OF THE CONTRACT FOR LETTING OUT THINGS

 

SECTION I – OF THE FORM AND DURATION OF LEASES

Art. 7. All things are susceptible of being let out, moveable as well as immoveable things, excepting those which cannot be used without being destroyed by that very use.

Art. 8. Leases may be made either by written or verbal contract. The manner of proving the validity of such contract is agreeably to the rules provided in the title of contracts and conventional obligations in general.

Art. 9. The lessee has a right to make a sublease and also to transfer his lease to another person, unless the contract stipulates that he shall not have the said right. It may be stipulated by contract that the lessee shall not let out any part of the thing, or that he shall only let a part of it. These conditions must always be strictly enforced.

Art. 10. The duration and the conditions of leases are generally regulated by contract or by mutual consent.

Art. 11. If in letting out a room or a house no time has been stipulated, the duration of said lease shall be at the will of either of the parties.
But it shall be the duty of the party who wishes to cancel the lease, to give notice of the same to the other party. That notice must be given a month before hand when the rent is payable quarterly and fifteen days only when the rent is payable by the month.

Art. 12. The lease of a praedial estate, when the time has not been specified, is presumed to be for one year, as that time is necessary in this territory to enable the farmer to make his crop and to gather in all the produce of the inheritance which he has rented.

Art. 13. A lease ceases ipso facto at the expiration of the time limited for its duration whether it be for a house or for a praedial estate.

Art. 14. If after the lease of a praedial estate has expired, the farmer should still continue to possess the same, without any step having been taken either by the lessor or by the new lessee to cause him to deliver up the possession of said estate, the former lease shall continue subject to the same clauses and conditions which it contained, but it shall continue only for the year following that of the expiration of the said lease.

Art. 15. If the tenant either of a house or of a room, should continue in possession after his lease has expired without any opposition being made thereto by the lessor, the lease shall be presumed to have been continued, and he cannot be compelled to deliver up said house or room, without having received the legal notice or warning directed by the 11th article of the present chapter.

Art. 16. In the cases provided for in the two preceding articles, the security given for the payment of the rent, shall not extend to the obligations resulting from the lease being thus prolonged.

 

SECTION II – OF THE OBLIGATIONS OF THE LESSOR

Art. 17. The lessor is bound from the very nature of the contract and without any clause to that effect; 1st, to deliver the thing leased to the lessee; 2d, to maintain the thing in a condition such as to serve the use for which it was hired; 3d, to cause the lessee to be in peaceable possession of the thing during the continuance of the lease.

Art. 18. The lessor is bound to deliver the thing in good condition and free from any repairs. He ought to make during the continuance of the lease, all the repairs which may accidentally become necessary, except those which the tenant is bound to make, as hereafter directed.

Art. 19. He guarantees the lessee against all the vices and defects of the thing which may prevent its being used, even in case it should appear that he knew nothing of the existence of said vices and defects at the time the lease was made; and if any loss should result to the lessee from said defect, the lessor shall be bound to indemnify him for the same.

Art. 20. If by any accident, the thing leased should be either totally or partly destroyed, the lessee may, according to the nature of the case, either claim a diminution of the rent or the cancelling of the lease, but he cannot claim to be indemnified.

Art. 21. The lessor has not the right to make any alteration in the thing, during the continuance of the lease.

Art. 22. If, during the continuance of the lease, the thing leased should be in want of repairs and if those repairs cannot be postponed until the expiration of the lease, the tenant must suffer such repairs to be made, whatever be the inconveniency he undergoes thereby, and though he be deprived either totally or in part of the use of the thing leased to him, during the making of said repairs.
But in case such repairs should continue for a longer time than one month, the price of the rent shall be lessened in proportion to the time during which said repairs have continued, and to the parts of the tenement of the use of which the lessee has thereby been deprived.
And the whole of the rent shall be remitted if the repairs have been of such nature as to oblige the tenant to leave the house or the room and to take another house while that which he had leased was repairing.

Art. 23. If in the lessee of a praedial estate, the premises have been stated to be of greater extent than they in reality are, the lessee may claim an abatement of the rent in the cases and subject to the provisions prescribed in the title of sale.

Art. 24. The lessor is not bound to guarantee to the lessee the possession of the thing against a third person who disturbs him in his possession, without claiming any right to the premises, but in that case the lessee has a right of action for damages sustained against the person occasioning such disturbance.

Art. 25. If the person by whom those acts of disturbance have been committed, pretends to have a right to the thing leased, or if the lessee is cited to appear before a court of justice to answer to the complaints of the persons thus claiming the whole or a part of the thing leased, or claiming some species of services on the same, he shall call the lessor in warranty and shall be dismissed, if he wishes it, by naming the person under whose right he possesses.

TITRE VIII - DU LOUAGE

 

CHAPITRE I - DES DIVERSES ESPÈCES DE CONTRATS DE LOUAGE 

Art. 1. Il y a deux sortes de contrats de louage, savoir:
Le louage des choses;
Et le louage d'ouvrage. 

Art. 2. Le louage des choses, est un contrat par lequel l'une des parties s'oblige à faire jouir l'autre d'une chose pendant un certain tems, moyennant un certain prix que l'autre s'oblige à payer.

Art. 3. Le louage d'ouvrage, est un contrat par lequel l'une des parties s'engage à faire quelque chose pour l'autre, moyennant un prix convenu entre elles.

Art. 4. Le louage des choses se divise en deux espèces principales, savoir:
Le louage des maisons et des meubles, qu'on appelle bail à loyer;
Et le louage des héritages ruraux, ou des biens de campagne, qu'on appelle bail à ferme.

Art. 5. Le louage d'ouvrage, ou service, se subdivise aussi en plusieurs espèces, ainsi qu'il sera expliqué en son lieu.           

Art. 6. Dans le louage des choses, celui qui donne la chose à loyer ou à ferme à l'autre, s'appelle le propriétaire ou bailleur;
Celui qui prend la chose à loyer ou à ferme, s'appelle le preneur;
Dans le bail à loyer en particulier, le preneur s'appelle le locataire, et dans le bail à ferme, il s'appelle le fermier.

 

CHAPITRE II - DU CONTRAT DE LOUAGE DES CHOSES

 

SECTION  I - DE LA FORME ET DE LA DURÉE DES BAUX

Art. 7. On peut louer toutes sortes de biens meubles et immeubles, excepté ceux qui se consument par l'usage seul qu'on en fait. 

Art. 8. Les baux peuvent être faits, par écrit ou verbalement.
La preuve de ces contrats se fait, conformément aux règles prescrites au titre des contrats, et des obligations conventionnelles en général. 

Art. 9. Le preneur a le droit de sous-louer, et même de céder son bail à un autre, si cette faculté ne lui a pas été interdite.
Elle peut être interdite pour le tout, ou partie, et cette clause est toujours de rigueur. 

Art. 10. La durée, et les clauses des baux, en général, sont purement conventionnelles. 

Art. 11. Si le bail d'un appartement, ou d'une maison été fait, sans en fixer la durée, le bail n'aura d'autre durée que la que volonté commune des parties.
Mais elles ne peuvent s'en départir, qu'en se donnant préalablement un avertissement, par lequel l'une d'elles déclare, que son intention est de le terminer.
Cet avertissement ou congé, doit se donner un mois d'avance pour les baux, dont les loyers se payent par quartier et quinze jours d'avance, pour ceux dont les loyers se payent par mois. 

Art. 12. Le bail d'un fonds rural ou bien de campagne, dont la durée n'a pas été déterminée, est censé fait pour un an, comme étant le tems qui est généralement nécessaire dans ce territoire, pour que le fermier puisse faire la récolte ou recueillir tous les fruits de l'héritage affermé. 

Art. 13. Le bail cesse de plein droit à l'expiration du tems fixé, tant à l'égard des maisons que du fonds de terre. 

Art. 14. Si après l'expiration du bail d'un héritage rural, le fermier continue sa jouissance, sans qu'il y ait été fait aucune diligence de la part du bailleur ou d'un nouveau fermier pour le contraindre à sortir, le bail se prolonge aux prix, clauses et conditions prescrits par celui qui est expiré, mais pour l'année seulement qui suit immédiatement la dernière du bail qui est expiré. 

Art. 15. Si le locataire d'une maison ou d'un appartement continue de même sa jouissance après l'expiration du bail, sans opposition de la part du bailleur, il sera censé les occuper aux mêmes conditions, et ne pourra plus en sortir, ni en être expulsé qu'après un avertissement ou congé préalable donné au tems d'avance fixé par l'article XI ci-dessus. 

Art. 16. Dans le cas des deux articles précédens, la caution qui aurait été donnée pour le bail, ne s'étend pas aux obligations résultant de la prolongation.

 

SECTION II - DES OBLIGATIONS DU BAILLEUR 

Art. 17. Le bailleur est obligé, par la nature du contrat, et sans qu'il soit besoin d'aucune stipulation particulière:
1°. De délivrer la chose au preneur;
2°. D'entretenir cette chose en état de servir pour l'usage pour lequel elle a été louée;
3°. D'en faire jouir paisiblement le preneur, pendant la durée du bail. 

Art. 18. Le bailleur est tenu de délivrer la chose en bon état de réparation de toute espèce;
Il doit faire, pendant la durée du bail, toutes les réparations qui peuvent devenir nécessaires, autres que les locatives. 

Art. 19. Il doit garantir le preneur de tous les vices ou défauts de la chose louée, qui en empêchent l'usage, quand même il ne les aurait pas connus lors du bail.
S'il résulte, de ces vices, quelque perte pour le preneur, le bailleur est tenu de l'en indemniser. 

Art. 20. Si, pendant la durée du bail, la chose louée est détruite, en tout ou en partie, par cas fortuit, le preneur peut, suivant les circonstances, demander, ou une diminution du prix, ou la résiliation du bail; mais sans aucun autre dédommagement. 

Art. 21. Le bailleur ne peut, pendant la durée du bail, changer la forme de la chose louée. 

Art. 22. Si, durant le bail, la chose louée a besoin de réparations, qui ne puissent être différées jusqu'à la fin, le preneur doit les souffrir, quelque incommodité qu'elles lui causent, et quoiqu'il soit privé, pendant qu'elles se font, d'une partie de la chose louée;
Mais, si ces réparations durent plus d'un mois, le prix du bail sera diminué, à concurrence du tems et de la partie de la chose louée, dont il aura été privé;
Le prix du bail sera entièrement remis, pendant la durée des réparations, si elles ont été de nature à obliger la locataire à sortir de la maison, ou de l'appartement qu'il occupe, et à se loger ailleurs, en attendant qu'elles soient faites. 

Art. 23. Si, dans un bail à ferme, on a donné aux fonds une contenance plus grande que celle qu'ils ont réellement, il n'y a lieu à diminution, pour le preneur, que dans les cas, et suivant les règles exprimées au contrat de vente. 

Art. 24. Le bailleur n'est pas tenu de garantir le preneur, du trouble que des tiers apportent, par voie de fait, à sa jouissance, sans prétendre, d'ailleurs, aucun droit sur la chose louée; sauf au preneur, à les poursuivre en son nom, et à demander, s'il y échet, des dommages intérêts, de ces voies de fait. 

Art. 25. Si ceux qui ont commis les voies de fait, prétendent avoir quelque droit sur la chose louée, ou si le preneur est cité lui-même en justice pour se voir condamner au délaissement de la totalité, ou de partie de cette chose, ou à souffrir l'exercice de quelque servitude, il doit appeler le bailleur en garantie, et doit être mis hors d'instance, s'il l'exige, en nommant le bailleur pour lequel il possède.
