I signed a usual 2 year (1 fixed + 1 floating) rental contract when I moved in to my apartment. That was in late January 2003. Since my fixed year (12 months + 2 months notice period) part is over at the end of march 2004 and I like my apartment and my landlord, I am wondering if it is possible to sign a new contract within the flexible year period. I am worried that by the time my flexi period gets over, my landlord may not be ready to sign a new lease at the old rate. What say the experienced folks on this forum? Is it better (and at all possible?) to sign a new contract some time soon within the flexi year or should I wait out till the last two months of the flexi period and see what the landlord has to say about it? Any pointers will be highly appreciated.
