The tenancy agreement is considered terminated by the landlord at the time of termination by the tenant.
If the landlord is unable to determine whether the premises have been abandoned by the tenant, the landlord must inform the tenant in writing, so that the tenant requires the tenant to notify the landlord in writing within seven days that the tenant intends to remain in the occupancy of the premises. If the tenant gives such a written notification to the landlord or if the landlord notices differently that the tenant remains in the occupancy of the premises, the landlord cannot consider the premises to be abandoned.
