Termination of rent should be requested for in writing. The lease can only be terminated on the last day of a month. The notice period amounts to at least one calendar month. A termination of lease is final and irrevocable. Termination of lease subject to certain requirements is not possible. If two tenants signed the rental contract then both should sign the termination of lease.
You can email the signed notice of termination to: email@example.com.
What will happen if the tenant of a property dies?
If you’re the partner/spouse of the deceased tenant you can ask us to adjust the ascription on the lease. In doing so only your name will be featured on the lease. Is the deceased person the sole tenant? Then we handle the termination of the lease agreement in conjunction with the heirs. Upon termination of the lease, we’ll need a death certificate.

The service manager/caretaker assesses what needs to be done before you deliver the house.
