Roommates can add other terms as long as all roommates agree on this. A model of agreement with roommates can be downloaded here. A subletting provides details of the tenancy agreement between the tenant and the subtenant, including whether the Rent Act does not address the rights and obligations of tenants to each other. It is common for roommates to enter into roommate contracts so that each tenant knows their rights and obligations. The original tenant would eventually like to enter into a temporary agreement with the tenant who sublet the property. The agreement should include all obligations under the original lease, which ensures that the new tenant is aware of all these obligations. The new tenant can either pay the rent to the original tenant or, if the landlord agrees, pay the landlord directly. The subtenant and subtenant must sign the sublease and keep a copy for their registrations. In addition, the subtenant should either attach a copy of the master lease to the sublease agreement or deliver it directly to the subtenant. If a tenant obtains permission to award the tenancy agreement, an authorization must be signed between the landlord and the tenant. An unblocking is a new agreement that frees the tenant from all its obligations to the landlord. For example, a signed release would protect the tenant from paying rent if the new tenant no longer pays it in the future. If a tenant finds someone who wants to take over the tenancy agreement, the tenant must obtain written permission from the lessor to award the lease.
A lessor can only refuse the application to transfer the tenancy agreement if there is reasonable cause (i.e., the new tenant refuses to fill out an application form or cannot pay the rent). If the lessor rejects the application, the tenant must have a written justification for the refusal. Tenants may sublet their premises or assign them to another person if certain conditions are met. The sublease must not exceed the length of time for which the original tenant has agreed to rent the property, as indicated in the main tenancy agreement (also known as the initial lease). Subletting is common when a tenant has to move temporarily during the tenancy period and finds a third party who pays for rent while he or she is away. A tenant may sublet his rental premises with the written agreement of the owner or assign it to another person. The tenancy agreement would be between the sub-note and the tenant. A lessor cannot refuse permission without physical cause and must be justified in writing to the tenant within 14 days of receiving the written application.
