I made an assignment request to the property manager but I have not heard from her for over 1 week. Based on the LTB

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I made an assignment request to the property manager but I have not heard from her for over 1 week. Based on the LTB law, I think I can serve the landlord N9 form to leave the lease. However, I have a roommate who I have no idea about if she wanna stay or not. So if I serve the landlord N9 form but my roommate wanna stay, will my N9 form turns invalid? Thank you
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: Ontario
JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?
Customer: assignment
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: N9 form

Debra, Expert

Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.

Debra, Expert

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Do you mean that you want to leave the tenancy before your fixed term  lease is up and you have  someone who will take over your spot?

Debra, Expert

I will check back in

You can provide your landlord with your notice but if the roommate is on the same lease then the notice will not mean very much unless it comes from both of you.

What you should know is that your landlord has a duty to consent to your assignment unless there is a reason not to do so. It is unreasonable for the land or not even to write back to you. They cannot act unreasonably and they cannot withhold consent unreasonably

Do you see what I mean?

Please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions related to this response and know that I will respond as soon as I can.

Customer
Dear *****, thank you a lot!
Customer
The landlord just replied that he allows sublet but does not allow assignment. Should I ask for a reason from him?

Debra, Expert

Yes you should. You should tell him that he cannot unreasonably withhold consent  to assign.

Debra, Expert

Is there anything more I can help you with before I mark this question as complete?
