The termination of a rental agreement

  • Updated

All agreements terminate after the time they were signed for runs out.

A regular rental agreement on Rendin is signed for a fixed period from 3 to 12 months. After one year, the 12-month contract is automatically terminated. This prevents it from turning into an indefinite contract, which has rigid terms and conditions and is almost impossible to terminate. Once the 12-month contract terminates, you can always sign another contract with a maximum duration of 12 months.

The Rendin rental agreement does not specify circumstances under which the tenant could terminate it. If you have to end the rental relationship, try to negotatiate a termination in agreement with the landlord, as the lease contract can be terminated by mutual agreement. Remember that the landlord might ask for compensation of, e.g., one month’s rent to avoid incurring losses while the property is unoccupied.

Detailed agreement termination terms can be found in §9 of the contract. An example agreement can be found here.

Occasional lease agreements on Rendin are signed for a fixed period from 3 to 12 months. By law, they must be concluded for a fixed amount of time, and so no notice periods are included. However, early termination is possible under the same conditions as above.
