If you do not sign a new contract at the end of your existing contract, automatically enter a legal periodic tenancy agreement that requires only one month`s notice from the tenant, so this should not be a problem. It is best to inform your landlord of your intentions as soon as possible so that he can start making arrangements to find a new tenant. It`s always best to communicate your plans with the owner and not just jump on them! We always recommend mutual agreements whenever possible, as they work best for both parties. As long as they comply with the contractual conditions, any tenant can, in a joint tenancy agreement, terminate the property. If the contract stipulates that a 2-month period is required, any tenant can give this notification and move two months later. A landlord is not obliged to offer you the possibility of a legal periodic rent, so there is no reason to cancel the contract. Talk to your landlord. Perhaps you can reach a compromise. A renewal contract is a new contract, usually for an additional limited period of time. They can be more easily evicted from a periodic lease, but the landlord has to follow the legal process and it takes time. At the end of the notice period, some tenants prefer to extend the tenancy agreement for an additional limited period of time. The advantage is the longer-term security and the knowledge of each other, where the other party is.
This is particularly common for families with school-aged children, where renewal is a sign of commitment and planning for the future. If tenants remain in The Occupation, in most cases, if no new fixed-term lease or « renewal » has been signed once the fixed-term lease is completed, a new « periodic » lease is automatically created in its place. You do not have the legal right to remain in a property at the end of the rental period. However, your landlord cannot dislodge you without following proper procedure. Thank you Sam for your reply. My plan is to terminate one month after my contract expires (March 1) one month in advance. If I give my message, it must be two months. I want to leave as soon as possible, so it feels good to only quit for a month. I`m just afraid they`ll call me and pressure me to renew the contract, and I want to refuse.
I`ve been with them for five years. Your landlord can always chase you to rent if you don`t finish your rent properly. As far as I know, an owner can create an AST for each desired period. What they cannot do (and I stand to be corrected here) is to finish during the first term (i.e. the first two months). The law is very confusing, especially when it comes to the dates that the notices have been distributed. The « period » in a periodic tenancy agreement is the same as the one for which the rent must be paid. If z.B. the rent is paid monthly, the « period » normally takes place from month to month. At this point, the lease is terminated for all parties, unless the lease says otherwise.
If the other tenants stay and pay the same rent, it will not be simple business as usual, since the lease that existed before has been terminated with its terms. To be valid, the termination of a tenant must end on the first or last day of a tenancy period. Your lease usually expires automatically if you go to the last day of the fixed term.
