I’m currently living in a room in a rental property under a tenancy agreement scheduled for a period of 4 months. Unfortunately my work situation has changed and I’ll be moving away from the area. I’ve found another person willing to take over my tenancy agreement for the room, but have been told by the letting agent that it’s unacceptable to have the new tenant come in and take over my tenancy. They wish to charge myself a fee for breaking the tenancy agreement as well as charge the incoming tenant full fees for coming in.
I’ve asked about subletting the room for the remainder of the period to the new tenant as it says in my lease I may do so if I get permission from the landlord, and that permission will not be unreasonably withheld. The agent once again said that this is unreasonable as that’s not how they operate.
Is there anything I can do about this to avoid the fees the letting agent is looking to charge the pair of us?
