We are three tenants under a joint tenancy agreement with a fixed-term lease of one year. There are 3 months remaining until the end of the lease.
One of the tenant has decided to simply leave at the end of the month, with no notice for the landlord, the agency, or for the other 2 tenants (including me).
My questions are therefore as follows:
- Please confirm that the other 2 tenants are expected to continue paying the full rent, and that the agency can sue them if only part of the payment is made
- Is it possible for us to sublet the room of the tenant leaving? If the agency refuses to sublet, is it a valid clause to break the contract?
- We live in Ireland. Can we go and reach the PRTB to ask the tenant that is leaving to pay his part of the rent?
Finally, can you advise on what our best option is?
Many thanks in advance!
