- For Teachers
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.
