As a result, tenants with one month`s notice may terminate their periodic rental agreement or ask the lessor for permission to terminate a temporary rental agreement and move prematurely. You can expect that, as soon as a rental agreement expires, the lease will automatically terminate. This is not true, and this is where periodic leases come in. A short-term rental agreement automatically becomes a periodic rental agreement if no new contract is signed, after the expiry of the fixed terms in the initial contract and the retention of the same tenants in the property. Rentals are automatically periodic immediately after the expiry of the fixed date of the contract and if the lease is not renewed. Neither landlords nor tenants have to do anything and a particular type of contract or clause is not required. You must obtain a written lease indicating the basic terms of your lease with the City Council.
