What happens to your home depends on the type of agreement you have and whether you are a tenant. You may not be a tenant if you are: you are jointly responsible for the maintenance of the property, including the common areas. If all co-retired tenants have no choice but to leave prematurely, then the best way to avoid paying the rent is for someone else to accept the lease. To avoid problems, your landlord must accept the care of the new tenants, but it is not necessary. Your landlord will usually give new tenants a clean tenancy agreement. If the landlord does not accept the new tenant, you can eventually negotiate to pay some of the rent you owe. For example, you pay two months` rent if there are four months left on the contract. If two or more people sign a common lease, they become responsible for the rent. The rental agreement applies to each person in the same way. Whatever choice they choose to distribute the rent among themselves, regardless of the mechanism they use to actually pay the rent, there is nothing that should affect the private landlord. Although you will have to insist, you will receive the rent as a one-time payment.

Look for the owner`s contract Where the ex left, and it was a common rental agreement, you can get the agreement of your landlord for the termination of the lease and a new exclusive rent. Your landlord doesn`t need to agree. You should try to make sure your lease is updated if one of you leaves. How and when you can do this depends on the type of lease you have, which other is named after the lease and your landlord`s discretion. It`s a good idea to check that your joint agreement has one before you sign. If not, you could ask for one. If you are a joint tenant and want to leave, you or your ex-partner can terminate the lease by termination. You both have to take your clothes off.

So if someone you live with doesn`t pay your share of the rent, the rest of you are responsible for making up the shortfall. If you do not count the deficit, you will all be responsible for your possible rent arrears. Your landlord could withdraw money from the deposit, take steps to evict you all or recover the debts of one of you or a guarantor. The situation could be complicated when it comes to a common lease. Indeed, a common lease means that both parties have a single lease agreement with all the rights and debts associated with it. Both tenants are responsible for the total rent, instead of 50% each, and both have the right to reside in the property. Your landlord may want to end the common lease and start a new one with the remaining person. If you are not sure that this is the best option, you can get help from your nearest citizen council. You have a common lease if there is more than one designated tenant in your contract.

If your lease was granted after April 1, 2007 and is not time-limited, the rental period is six months. This means that you and the owner are bound to this rental agreement for 6 months. After the 6-month period expires, your lease will be periodic and you can terminate the lease by providing the correct amount of the notification in writing. Married or unmarried persons, with or without children, may, under the Family Act 1996, apply to the court for the transfer of the lease. But the decision is up to the court, and very good reasons should be made for the transfer of the lease. The Court will consider that a fixed-term lease is valid for a fixed term of six months or one year.
