Most often, leases are terminable, but some are actually non-revocable for various reasons. When can a lease be irrevocable and if it is the case – don’t you have the opportunity to terminate? We will teach you the rules about an irrevocable lease!
The basis about leases
Most leases can be terminated according to the rules of the rent act. Therefore you basically always have the right to terminate your tenancy if you want to move out. Your landlord must have a very compelling reason to be able to terminate your lease.
What is an irrevocable lease?
An irrevocable lease is an agreement between the landlord and the tenant that the tenancy cannot be terminated for a defined period.
In other words, if irrevocability has been agreed for 12 months, the lease cannot be terminated during the first 12 months of the lease. The lease will automatically terminate after 12 months if it is dated for 12 months.
If the rental period continues after the irrevocability period is over, the tenancy will continue. The lease can be terminated if the parties have not agreed on its termination in the lease. The normal termination rules in the rent act apply. In that case you have a notice period of three months.
