My apartment contract will terminate in one month. During the signing of the contract, I was told to inform the agent 1 month before my move-out date (I call it a 1-month rule). I am trying to move into another apartment after my current contract termination. However, it's not confirmed until I sign the documents. My current apartment authority told me to complete the renewal procedure 1 month before the current contract termination.
My question is what happens if I keep uninformed the apartment authority about my renewal/moveout until I confirm with my new apartment? Does that 1-month rule apply only when I need to break the contract before 2 years of my stay?
