When a roommate retires within a regular period of time, he or she can terminate his or her own lease under a periodic contract by giving the lessor and the other roommate 21 days` notice. As soon as they evacuate the premises at the time of the notice, they are no longer tenants under the agreement. If you have a lease in common with another person, but one of you wants to be the tenant, you must ask the landlord to change the lease. This can happen when a relationship ends and a partner agrees to leave the family home. Tenants When all tenants leave, they must give the landlord a 21-day notice of termination during a periodic contract or a 14-day termination before the end of a fixed-term contract. If the tenancy agreement mentions more than one tenant, the lessor may indicate the termination of a tenant as termination of the lease for all persons. Common tenants must write to the landlord and confirm that both agree to the change in the tenancy agreement. If the landlord accepts the rent change, a new lease must be signed. Whether the joint tenancy agreement is set up as a tenant or subtenant, different obligations and procedures are created and must be respected by your clients. Let`s look at the different arrangements: principal tenant You are a tenant (your name appears on the rental agreement of the premises), you reside in the premises and rent part of the premises to another person under a separate written agreement. This person is a tenant. If you sign up for your new rental agreement, you must sign a consent form allowing the Housing Authority to take and store your photo of yourself. For a common lease, they need the photo of each tenant.

This scenario is if your tenant agrees to allow an additional resident to stay with them in your property they rent for a short or long stay. Exclusive use or possession of part of your property is not allowed in this agreement – even if the boarder pays your tenant rent. Your tenant is not required to obtain your consent to have boarders/s, provided they do not exceed the maximum number of occupants specified in the rental agreement.
