Residential lease: can you send your leave (notice) by email?
Verified 06 September 2022 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)
You can't just give leave by e-mail. A leave given in this way is not valid, even if it is accepted by return of mail by its recipient.
But you can give leave by one registered letter (RL). A leave given in this way is valid, provided that the recipient declares beforehand that he accepts this method of dispatch, when this recipient is an individual.
