Unless it is stated in the lease agreement the rental period will always be unlimited. There can be exceptions if the lease is time limited or if the lease is sublet.
- Unlimited: the landlord cannot terminate the tenant, unless the tenant violate the lease agreement.
- Time limited: it is agreed that the rental period is limited. The lease agreement ends when the lease period ends. So unless other is agreed upon, neither the tenant nor the landlord is able to terminate the lease prematurely. The reason for the time limited rental period must be written in the lease.
- Sublease: the present tenant sublets a part of or the entire rental property in a time limited period.
