If the landlord sells the rented house, the tenant has the right of first refusal.

The alert is given by Deco Proteste, which is cited by Notícias ao Minuto, explaining that if a tenant has rented a house for more than two years, and the landlord wants to sell it, the tenant has the right of first refusal to purchase it.

So, if this is your situation and your landlord has informed you of the intention to sell the house where you are living, know that, as a tenant, you can exercise your right of first refusal

To do this, you must inform the landlord that you want to buy the property where you live. Deco reinforces the importance of making a "written complaint by registered mail or email", as "it serves as evidence and can be decisive in resolving your conflict".

In this communication, it is also essential to identify "who sends, the recipient and the date", as well as clarify "clearly the facts".

Finally, in order to play in your favor, you must also keep "copies of the shipment", in order to protect your right.  

See the example of communication that Deco recommends, here.
