Is it possible to transfer my tenancy to a new housemate?


#1

Hello,

I will be leaving my OpenRent property in mid-March to move in with my boyfriend. My current housemates and I signed a new contract starting on the 27 November 2018 with a 4 month break clause. My landlord has said he is happy for me to find a replacement tenant, but how can I ensure the paperwork no longer includes my name?

Is it possible for the OpenRent AST contract to be amended, so that the new tenant is liable for the rent and the deposit is held in their name?

Thanks!
Harriet

Thanks George - does this still apply before the end of the initial fixed term?
