No, this is not possible.


A leasecontract shorter than 3 years can not be ended by the tenant himself.

The tenant should negociate with the landlord in order to settle amicably.


However a short term contract can provide some termination options.

For those who would like to work with short term contracts we advise to start with a contract of 1 year so that tenant and landlord get to know each other better. Afterwards the contract can be extended or it can be changed into a 9 year contract.
