letter template Termination of the lease with request for amicable reduction of the notice period What happens when a lease is terminated? The termination of a lease is the fact of putting an end to a rental contract. It can be initiated by the owner or the tenant. What are the procedures to follow and how exactly does it happen? Here is everything you need to know.Termination of the rental agreement by the tenantIf the tenant wants to terminate a rental agreement, he/she does not have to justify the reasons why he/she wants to do so except in case of a request for a reduction of the notice period. The notice should normally last three months and must be served by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt or through a bailiff. After sending it, the tenant should not go back on his decision except with the approval of the landlord. Termination of the rental agreement by the landlordIf the termination is initiated by the landlord, the landlord should give valid reasons. It could be that he needs the dwelling to live in himself or for one of his relatives to move in. It should be noted that a fine of €6,000 must be paid if the reasons given are false. As far as the notice period is concerned, it must be given to the tenant at least six months before the termination date.
