Leaving leases early - Applications to Lease

< Back to list

Be aware that these are not acceptable reasons for a landlord/agent to refuse a tenancy application:

  • race;
  • gender;
  • disability;
  • age;
  • sexual orientation;
  • parental status;
  • religion;
  • irrelevant criminal record;

If the landlord has not accepted an application for any of the above reasons, or if they will not give you a reason, then they may not be taking reasonable steps to find a new tenant, and you may not be liable for further rent for the premises.
