Among the most infamous (and worrisome), many landlords and tenants believe that a lease automatically ends on the date set and agreed in a rental agreement next to the „end date“ box. This is probably the biggest misunderstanding about the termination of leases. All the end date ultimately indicates is „when“ a lease can be terminated, not really when it is terminated. Another common misunderstanding is that landlords think they can simply say „out“ to their tenants on a whim if the mood beats without official notification and/or follow the right procedures. It`s often fun and embarrassing when homeowners try to throw away their beer gut like this. If you want to cancel a monthly or weekly rental agreement, use our eviction notice instead. The general rule is that tenants should leave the property in the condition in which they received it, of course minus wear and tear. It sounds pretty simple, and it should be really, really. But no, in many cases, it`s really, really, really not.
