Example text

Jane, not Renee, entered into a contract with the landlord. But just as Renee has no legal obligations at this early stage, she has no rights either. If Jane moves out, Renee can’t stay unless the landlord consents. Renee can easily turn into a tenant with all the legal rights and responsibilities that go with tenant status by doing any of the following: • Having the landlord prepare a new lease that includes both Jane and Renee as tenants. • Talking to the landlord and agreeing orally to a tenant-landlord relationship.

Louise is liable for it all for the remaining six months. Louise, however, does have a partial out. If she 2/9 doesn’t want to stay, she can try to find someone to take over the remainder of the lease. Even if the lease prohibits subletting and the landlord insists on enforcing it, Louise can legally move out with no financial obligation as long as she finds a suitable new tenant who will pay at least the same rent. This is because the law requires the landlord to do whatever possible to re-rent the apartment (“mitigate damages,” in legalese), and not just sit back and insist on the lease payments.

How does a couple terminate their domestic partnership? Note that even though most domestic partnership applications ask you to state that you are financially responsible for each other’s needs, these ap- 1/7 plications are generally not considered binding contracts of support. In other words, your partner can’t sue you for failing to provide for him, as promised. If you are interested in working with your employer toward obtaining domestic partnership benefits, we recommend that you get a copy of The Domestic Partnership Organizing Manual for Employee Benefits, published by the Policy Institute of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
