A notice of healing or termination gives a tenant the opportunity to remedy a breach of the lease within a certain period of time, which is usually longer than the period allowed for the rent catch-up period. Written contracts are there to protect both landlords and tenants. I would interview any tenant or landlord who pursues a tenancy without a written contract. In my opinion, this sets off alarm bells. Your or your landlord`s right to terminate a lease and your right to stay and be protected from eviction depend on the type of tenancy you have. In my girlfriend`s case, you can`t just tell her to leave in the middle of the agreed fixed term with 4 days` notice just because there is no written lease. However, it is a bit difficult to prove when the agreed end date of the rental is. .
