It is mandatory to terminate your lease. To do so, you need to go on your account on our reservation portal and under the tab “Termination” you can make your request to end your lease. This must be done, at least 2 months in advance, for end or mid-month. Our termination confirmation e-mail validates the end-date of your lease. For example, make your request on the portal before 30 April to terminate the lease for 30 June, or before 15 April for 15 June.

If you forget to terminate your lease, it will be automatically renewed and you will be rent liable. 

Kindly note that it is not possible to return to FMEL earlier than 6 months after the termination date . If you are intending to return in the future, please contact your house administrator to re-enable your access to the reservation platform. Returning tenants do not have priority over New Tenants.


Kindly contact your house manager to fix an appointment for the date and time of the check-out (weekdays only) at least 5 working days before your departure. N.B. It is the house manager who will fix the date and time of the appointment (taking into consideration your request as far as is possible depending on his/her availability). At the check-out, you must leave the accommodation in a perfect state of cleanliness, otherwise you will be charged for cleaning. The house manager will give you advice on how and what to clean and can lend you cleaning products or equipment, depending on availability. Details concerning the final cleaning can be found here.

Return of the security deposit:

In the confirmation of the termination of your lease that you will receive from your house administrator by e-mail, all relevant information will be given on how to get your security deposit reimbursed. Read this carefully and follow the instructions. The reimbursement of the security deposit may take up to four months.

Allow enough time for these formalities on your last day. If you have an early morning plane, these formalities will have to be carried out the previous day and you will have to return your room key on that day and find somewhere else to sleep on the last night.

You must also complete the departure formalities for the Population Office of your local council.
