How do I terminate my rental contract?

You can cancel your contract by sending a registered letter to the landlord. This is a letter that you post at the post office and for which you pay extra so that the landlord has to sign for receipt. This letter must state:

  • Name of landlord;
  • date you'll send the letter;
  • Subject;
  • Your name;
  • The address where you are now renting (or where you were renting);
  • When you want to cancel the rental agreement. Please note the statutory notice period (a payment term).
  • Request a refund of deposit with your bank account number (optional);
  • Your new address (optional).

Send this letter by registered letter, but also by email just to be sure. You can find a sample letter in our Downloads (Dutch and English). If you have any further questions, please let us know! We are happy to take a look for you.
