The law requires tenants to let landlords know in writing that they are moving at least a full tenancy period or 30 days (depending on the extension) before the move.10 This period begins to run from the date your landlord receives the notification, not from the time you send it.11 If you pay your rent on the first of each month and want to leave before April 1 and you want to leave. , your landlord must receive your notice by the end of February (February 28 is OK, but it`s not March 1st).)

You can leave and take any risks that might follow. The risks are that the owner is likely to keep your deposit. They may also try to sue you or make you responsible for the rent until another tenant moves in. But while some homeowners may be willing to leave you out of the lease, others may not. However, the law requires the lessor to do everything in his power to find another tenant.7 If, after informing the lessor in writing that you are going to leave, he is not ready to withdraw from the lease, you can take a number of steps to protect yourself: a written voluntary removal contract is proof that there is a new contract.
