To end the rental, the tenant must issue a valid termination after the date on which the fixed term ends. Your or your landlord`s right to terminate a lease and your right to stay and be protected from eviction depend on the type of tenancy you have. Your lease is a “fixed-term” contract if it has a specific start and end date. An oral agreement can also be changed. The change will usually also be verbal. In the event of a dispute, proof of the change may be provided if you can only terminate your contract prematurely if your landlord agrees or if your written contract states that you can do so, which is called an “interruption clause”. If your tenancy began after March 1997, a tenant has the right to ask their landlord to make a statement about the terms of their lease. The information to be provided is as follows.
