Terminating your lease
The notice period 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 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.
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 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.
The notice period starts from the last day of the month in which the Termination of Tenancy request is received by KOAS. If your tenancy has lasted more than 1 year, the landlord's tenancy notice period is 3 months. If your tenancy has lasted less than a year, the notice period is 1 month.
A fixed-term lease ends automatically on the expiry of the contract, a separate termination of the tenancy is not required.
If you accept an offer of new housing from KOAS, you must
terminate your current lease before the new offer expires. Be prepared to move on the 1st day of the month, as when you are
transferring from one KOAS apartment to another, we cannot pre-arrage
the moving time.
Remember also inform your subtenant the time you are moving out.
