What are the steps for adding a housemate onto an existing tenancy agreement in Canberra?
I note that the Residential Tenancy Agreement (72) states that: (1) The tenant must not assign or sublet the premises or any part of them without the written consent of the lessor; (2) Consent may be given at any time.
If this is the case, then how should I go about adding a tenant to the agreement? Run interviews with potential housemates first, then contact agent saying I’ve found someone suitable? Or should I tell agent upfront that I’ll be looking to share with someone in the near future (seeing as I’ll be applying for a 2 bedder on my own)? Will that decrease my chances of being approved for a place?
