Negotiate with the owner/broker an agreed amount of compensation. (The landlord can agree not to be compensated.) Discuss whether the landlord will enforce your rights to your loan. File any agreement in writing. Ask the court to terminate your fixed-term contract if special circumstances exist and if the continuation of the lease would cause you unreasonable harshness. They have either a “temporary lease” that ends on a given date, or a “periodic lease”, which continues for example monthly or weekly. A periodic lease is also called a “rolling lease”. A periodic lease continues under the same conditions and you should pay your rent as usual. It will run monthly or weekly depending on how often your rent was due for the fixed term. Once you have accepted a new fixed deadline, it is mandatory for you and the owner.
If you stay after the limited time, you have a regular rental agreement. Check the notification you need to give if you have a regular rental agreement. Your rental does not automatically stop if you withdraw during a temporary rental agreement. A temporary rental agreement only lasts for the time set out in the rental agreement. It can be renewed or extended if the landlord and tenant agree. If a tenant wishes to move before the expiry of the term, he can sublet the property. You can also assign your rental relationship to another person. If a tenant sublets his property, he must always fulfill his obligations under his lease.
Temporary leases can only be changed if the landlord and all tenants agree. Each agreement should be in writing and contain what has been agreed. Both the landlord and the tenants must keep a copy. This fact sheet focuses on the termination of a temporary lease. If you are in a current periodic rental agreement (the fixed term of which has expired or is not indicated), please read fact sheet 09: You wish to leave). If you need to leave before the end of your rental, your landlord or agent may charge an early cancellation fee. You cannot ask for more than the rent you would have paid if you had stayed until the end of your lease. A fixed-term lease is a contract covering a given period of time.
It is usually (but not always) stipulated in a written contract called a rental agreement. It can be for any period, but can range from just 6 months to a year or more. It is important to keep in mind the following points regarding a temporary rental agreement: Please note that special rules during COVID-19 may influence some of the information contained in this fact sheet.
