When terminating a lease, you must first determine if the lease is a Fixed Term Tenancy or Periodic Term Tenancy. A fixed term means that the lease has a start date and an end date. At the end date, all fixed term leases automatically become periodic month-to-month leases. A Periodic Tenancy is a tenancy that does not have a fixed term and renews every month or week (depending on whether rent was paid monthly or weekly).

If Fixed, both the landlord and tenant have to provide a 60 day notice prior to the end of the term.

If Periodic, both the landlord and tenant have to provide a 28 day notice prior to the day they would like to end the term.
