when talking about renting an apartment, there are short term contracts and long term ones.
what is the name of this property that the "term" has? extension? duration? length?
if i want to write down a reminder to myself, could I write it as follows?
"do not forget to ask about the term extension".
Are you talking about the rental period or the extension?
tenancy period? lease?
extension to tenancy?
not a teacher
I am talking about the rental period.
"the term lenght is 6 months"
"the term's lenght is 6 months"
"the term duration is 6 months"
"the term's duration is 6 months"
"the duration of the term/contract is 6 months"
I couldn't find a clue on CAE.
How would a native say it in a very informal way, please?

Notice I'm not a teacher.
Term means period of time which a legal agreement lasts for; so it is the length of time and is fixed (the beginning date)
The tenancy agreement length is 6 months.
The agreement length is ...
The contract length is ..
The tenancy agreement term is 6 months.
The agreement term is ....
The contract term is ....
or just 6 months term
If I were you I would make a note like :
Don't forget to ask about the contract extension.
