Good Afternoon

Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.

It is a fixed term lease for the 12 months?

Have you spoken with the landlord or the agent about this?

Is your partner prepared and able to keep the lease for the balance of the period?

cause I reply to his / her question in wanting more information and as not gotten back to me
My apology for the delay I lost internet connection.

If your partner is prepared to take it over, then you have to get the landlords consent for you to be removed and for your partner to be the sole tenant.

Here is some information from the department of commerce for you.

You need the landlords consent.

Again my apology for not being able to get back to you earlier.

I hope this is of assistance. If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know before leaving any feedback.

If I have assisted please do not forget to leave me with positive feedback.
