Termination without notice is an extraordinary termination that can be given by the landlord for the following reasons:
- Serious payment delay (more than one full month's rent)
- Continuation of the Misbehaviour Despite a Warning
- Gross violation of morality and/or house rules
Termination without notice due to payment delay can be cured by payment. However, this possibility exists only once and within the given deadline.
Moving out due to termination without notice does not automatically release the tenant from his obligation to pay. In the case of fixed-term contracts, the landlord may claim loss of rent in the amount of the net cold rent + furniture rent until the end of the contract or until the new tenancy.
If the tenant neither moves out nor pays his outstanding debts, an eviction action must be initiated. This is associated with considerable costs for the tenant and can lead to a SCHUFA entry.
What is SCHUFA?
The abbreviation SCHUFA stands for "Schutzgemeinschaft für allgemeine Kreditsicherung" and provides information about your creditworthiness. It shows how reliably financial obligations have been met so far. A negative SCHUFA entry can have serious consequences, such as rejection of credit and EC card up to no possible cell phone contract.
