The same rule applies if the renter is late with the rent payment in two subsequent terms or if the total amount equals the rent for two months. If a fixed rent term is agreed, we can also ask for a preliminary payment - deposit for the remaining rent term at a maximum of twelve monthly rents, instead of termination and indemnification.
