Article 785 of the Civil Code states:
“In the event that the tenant has developed another structure or established plants in the thing rented, even with the assent of the lessor, the lessor may, upon the termination of the rent, either expect him to annihilate the structure or eliminate the plants, or he might assume control over responsibility for new structures or plants set there for such worth as they would have whenever taken out assuming that the obliteration or expulsion thereof would hurt the property, and in the event that the destruction or evacuation wouldn’t hurt the property, the lessor may not need that they stay there without the assent of the resident.”
