Terminate your lease

Termination of Tenancy request

The notice period for terminating your lease is one calendar month. Once we receive your Termination of Tenancy, we will send a confirmation email no later than the next working day. Keep the confirmation as a proof of the termination of your lease. NB! If you do not receive the confirmation, your Termination of Tenancy request has not been received by Koas. You are responsible for making sure we receive your Termination of Tenancy request.

Give permission to hand over your contact information upon termination and show the apartment to the new possible tenant, also presenting with pictures or a video is enough. If it leads to contract with new tenant, you will receive a €10 GoGift gift card during the month following the end of the contract.

Terminating the lease of a family or a shared apartment

For family lease contracts, both leaseholders must submit their own Termination of Tenancy request. If one of you wishes to stay in the apartment, please contact the Housing Office before sending your Termination of Tenancy request. If you have paid a deposit, note that we can only pay the family lease deposit to one bank account, so please make sure you only submit one account number.

If you terminate your lease from a shared apartment, Koas will inform the other tenants about the empty room.

The notice period

The notice period starts from the last day of the month in which the Termination of Tenancy request is received by Koas. The landlord’s tenancy notice period is 6 months, if your tenancy has lasted more than 1 year. If your tenancy has lasted less than a year, the notice period for landlord is 3 months.

A fixed-term lease ends automatically on the expiry of the contract, which means a separate termination of the tenancy is not required.
