I'm renting a house in the Netherlands, on a one-year fixed term contract. The contract does not include any termination clause (except for the "diplomatic clause"). Now the contract is up for renewal, and I asked to insert a termination clause in the contract with a suitable notice period (I was thinking two or three months). The agency tells me that only a one month period is allowed, or else a fixed term contract. The landlord is not happy with a one month period.
It seems like I have to make the choice between a one-month notice period or an effective notice period of the contract length, without any intermediate choice. Is this correct, and do I have any other option?
