It is important for roommates to be aware that if the tenancy agreement is not a fixed-term rent or if there is a break clause, only a tenant completely terminates the tenancy agreement by sending a notice of termination to the lessor. In cases where home abuse is involved, if the person who has left the property gives notice to the landlord without informing his partner, the lease ends as soon as the notice expires and nothing can be done to stop it. You can try to prevent this if you want to stay. You must apply for an injunction from the court before your ex-partner announces it – this can be complicated, so it`s best to get help from your next citizen council. Protection of a common lease When the ex is gone and it is a joint lease, the lease may be exhausted without anything being done (provided it is a periodic lease agreement and not a fixed term). In the case of a joint tenancy agreement, you are responsible for the rental arrears caused by you or another tenant. This is called joint and several liability It is unusual for an owner to give separate leases to people who live in a couple. But if you have your own agreement that doesn`t mention your partner, then you`ll probably still be able to live in the property when your partner goes. You are only responsible for the portion of the rent indicated in your individual contract. When a tenant has a joint lease with their spouse or life partner, they become alone when their spouse or life partner dies.
If you are married or have a partnership with someone who owns it, you have the right to go home. “Original rights” is a legal term that usually means that you can live in your home as if you were the owner. If a tenant violates the terms of the contract, the landlord can act against him. The owner can apply to the court for an order to own the property. As a general rule, joint tenancy agreements are put in place, in which all tenants participate in a tenancy agreement. Each tenant is responsible for their own rent and responsibility, as well as the responsibility and rent of the group. It is a joint and several responsibility. Check your consent to determine if it is a periodic or fixed-term lease. But it only takes one tenant to terminate the lease – the whole lease for all – at least when the fixed term of a lease is completed and/or the lease is periodic, or if a break clause allows an early termination by a tenant.
