Termination of the tenancy is different from eviction. A termination is if the landlord terminates the lease and asks the tenant to leave the rental unit. A tenant can have his rental terminated and move without being evicted. An eviction is the actual legal process and prosecution for a tenant to be removed from the property if they do not leave. As a general rule, the tenant or landlord can provide a notice period of 2 months during the limited duration of the tenancy in order to end the tenancy prematurely. The most common example where an interruption clause is used is with a 12-month contract, which offers the possibility of terminating the lease after 6 months. Essentially, either party can “break” the rental before the end date, provided the correct procedures are followed. We are a tenant currently in an Assured Short Hold lease ending on 14/08/2016. I let the owner know that we will be moving on August 14th and he agrees. I called the real estate agents to confirm that since the lease ends on the 14th, I don`t have to cancel 2 months in advance. To my surprise, they told me I still had to cancel two months in advance! It`s true? Even if our landlord is happy and doesn`t mind us leaving on the 14th, can real estate agents impose this on us? As we exhaust a purchase on a property next week, we hope every penny counts and that means not paying rent for a place that isn`t necessary. Any guidance would be appreciated.
Thank you. It`s rare. If the circumstances are extreme, the court may rule that a breach of a basic provision of a lease authorizes the innocent party, either the landlord or the tenant of the lease, to treat the lease as terminated (in addition to being able to bring an action for damages). Well, that had to happen, right? The topic of terminating a lease seems to be the natural step to progress after blogging about how to renew a lease. Granted, both topics are equally unsatisfactory to write (and likely to be read if they`re not relevant to your current needs), but undeniably important and inevitable steps to being a homeowner. I have a tenant in a 6-month rental that ends on March 24, 2017. A week ago, he sent an extension request via Messenger. I gave the tenant the choice to extend by 6 months or periodically. He asked for a periodical.
Everyone agreed on identical conditions, etc. Today, I receive the message (by messenger) that he wants to move on March 25, since he has found another place of residence. I told him I needed a month`s notice, so he is responsible for the rent until April 24, 2017. . . .
