A fixed-term rental agreement sets a start and end date and the minimum duration you want to meet in the accommodation. Most fixed-term contracts have a duration of six to twelve months (or the agreed period) that is agreed at the beginning of the lease. In a periodic rental agreement, the rent can be increased, but the tenant must be informed in writing for at least 60 days, indicating the amount of the increase and the effective date of the increase. The tenant only has to pay the increase in case of regular termination. The rent cannot be increased during the first six months of a periodic lease or less than six months after the previous increase. You do not have to terminate the contract.
