If he establishes a permanent trading shop or factory to sell his crops in its original condition or after its manufacturing, the sale in such a case shall be considered as a commercial business, and accordingly all the commercial transactions and obligations imposed by law shall apply upon him.

In case the tenant subleases the property without the approval of the landlord, the latter can request the tenant’s evacuation from the property before expiry of the tenancy period. The evacuation in this case is effective for the tenant and the subtenant, with the right of the latter to claim for compensation from the tenant.
