My foreign student tenant is leaving early and wants to pass it on to a colleague
My foreign student tenant has been in the flat for nearly three years. He has paid in advance till July. However, for whatever reason he is going back home in mid-February. He has a colleague who would like to "take over " the flat till the end of the tenancy in July.
Question is: what is the best way to go about achieving this? Do I leave him responsible but let him effectively sublet or do I terminate the lease, give him a refund (subject to any repairs etc) and grant a new lease to his friend?
Any advice/pointers would be appreciated.
