Possible to hire maid for 1 yr?

The usual contract period is 2 yrs. Is it possible to (or how to) hire full time maid for 1 year only?

The easiest way is to transfer her out after one year but to be fair to her you should tell her in advance.

Other than this method lah. Why even transfer maid are given a fresh 2 yr contract? Are there contracts for 12 mths? Esp given the new rule where employer pay upfront all the expenses to bring the maid in.
