Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Has the landlord agreed to the sublease?
Would you still be living there and renting out part of the unit or would you be moving out?
You first need permission of the landlord. At the same time, the landlord is not permitted to unreasonably withhold his consent.
This sublease will not affect your obligations to the landlord. In other words, you remain liable to the landlord and your son will be a liable to you. So, if your son fails to pay rent you are on the hook.
Your son will have the legal right to live in the unit and so long As the landlord says he can sublet he should have all the rights that you have.
We cannot provide documentation so I cannot provide you with the contract. I'm sorry about that.
Does that answer your questions?
