Can I End/Terminate My Contract?

Depending on your type of contract and the agreed conditions, you may or may not have the option to terminate your contract before the end date. Please contact us, and we will review your contract and provide you with the relevant information.

Fixed-Term Contract

We offer fixed-term contracts with a maximum duration of 12 months. A fixed-term contract is a legally binding agreement with a predetermined timeframe that cannot be terminated prematurely, except by mutual consent through a termination agreement. This arrangement provides clear and stable terms for both tenants and landlords throughout the specified duration. It's crucial to distinguish between a fixed-term contract and a definite contract; the former cannot be terminated by either the tenant or the landlord before the contract's end date. If you wish to terminate a fixed-term contract prematurely, it can only be done through a termination agreement, which may involve administrative costs.

What Is A Termination Agreement?

A termination agreement is a mutually agreed-upon agreement between the tenant(s) and the landlord to end the tenancy agreement before the specified end date. It outlines the terms and conditions of the early termination, including any obligations, responsibilities, and potential costs involved. The termination agreement provides a formal and legally binding framework for both parties to terminate the tenancy agreement in a mutually agreed manner.

What Do You Need To Mention In Your Registered Letter?

If your contracts needs you to terminate by registered letter, you can find the information regarding the registered letter here:

To terminate the rental agreement, you must submit a notice of termination in the form of an "aangetekende brief" (registered letter). According to the law (link), this is the only valid method of giving notice to your landlord. The registered letter provides evidence of delivery and ensures that your notice is legally recognized and binding.

Mention the following in your registered letter:

  • Date per when you'd like to terminate.
  • Signature of all tenants in case you rent an entire apartment, otherwise only your signature of your renting an individual room.
  • The address of the accommodation in question.

Other information

Please take into account that we plan the pick-up of the letters, once, at the end of every month (the last day); this is to prevent missing out on registered letters coming in right after we picked it up.
