Withdrawing the rental contract termination

Hi,

We sent our landlord a notice of termination of rental contract which he accepted; but due to some reasons we have to withdraw our notice of termination. We sent another letter(einschreiben) to him stating that we would like to withdraw our termination request. The landlord was not at home and the pick up receipt was left by the Post. He hasnt collected it from the Post yet.

Does anyone have any idea what should we do? Will we be serving the notice period from April 1?

Re: Withdrawing the rental contract termination

You have to do your utmost best to try to contact the landlord asap, since there is no right to withdraw it you are depending on his will to allow you to stay longer. The longer you wait the higher the change he has made costs for a replacement or even finds one.

Interesting, how do you know they had to leave a pick up receipt and you also know he hasn't picked it up yet? Scary to any data protection supporter.

However, I don't understand what <<Will we be serving the notice period from April 1>> means. Should you be out by April 1st?? Or does the notice period start tomorrow?

You should try to reach him by phone - due to corona you can't just show up at his door - if that's not possible you could drop a letter into his letter-box, explaining the problem (so he gets it when ever he does get back home).
I really depends when you gave in notice. He might have a new tenant.
If it is possible to keep the contract it will be his decision/good will.
You can always take over costs he had for looking for a new tenant. They are not all that high.
Good luck.

Nothing to do with privacy, just a normal service from the post to electronically being able to follow your own letter.
