Transfer of Tenancy
You can transfer the whole tenancy to another person if the landlord gives written consent. The landlord is entitled to withhold consent without good reason. If you are a co-tenant and want to transfer your tenancy when at least one of the original tenants will remain, the landlord must not ‘unreasonably’ withhold consent.
