If you stay in the property beyond the end of the fixed term, even if it is only for one day, you will automatically become a so-called periodic tenant. This means that your rental agreement goes from week to week or month to month and it normally takes 4 weeks to a month in advance to end it. As a rule, the notice period they must grant is a maximum of 2 months. Due to the coronavirus, you must, in most cases, give them longer notice. As of December 11, 2017, fixed-term rental agreements can no longer contain a clause requiring a tenant to move at the end of the period, except: it is best not to leave your home without notice or to withdraw your landlord`s consent. Your rental agreement is not over and you still have to pay your rent until you finish your rental in the right way.
