Re-posted here as is more relevant. We have been renting since May 2017 through an estate agent and recently renewed our lease for another year in April 2018. However we found a property to buy and will need to break the lease. I have been in touch with Threshold and they advised to request permission to 'assign the lease' and if the agency agrees then we will be responsible for the rent until the new tenants move in. If they say refuse we can serve them with a 28 day notice of termination, we will no longer be liable for any rent after we move out. They can take some money from our deposit for advertising and that is it. Just wondering if there is anything I should be on the look out for? We were renting our last place in Dublin for 6 years and always looked after the property. Other properties we have rented we left it in a much better state than when we moved in so always got our deposit back. Now we are renting in Cork and it hasn't been smooth sailing from day one but I have pictures for when we moved in. Any thoughts will be appreciated. Thanks.
