ENDING THE TENANCY
Depending on the contract you have signed, do respect scrupulously the termination procedure. For a 1 month notice, you should send a registered mail to the Landlord and make sure he will get it before the anniversary date of the contract. If your tenancy agreement started on 4th of the month, and you want to leave after the 4th of February, the Landlord should receive the registered mail before the 4th of January.
