Answer 2 If you refuse above reassignment and new tenant is a reasonable replacement then they have the right to terminate the tenancy.
You would be entitled to any cost of re renting such as advertising or agent letting few and any rent due until new tenants are found. They will be entitled to balance of deposit back.
Sorry, just re-reading your message. Maybe my question wasn't clear / I made an incorrect assumption but:
From reading https://www.threshold.ie/advice/endi...o-replace-you/
I am pretty sure that I have the right to accept or refuse a request to sub-let or assign. Perhaps I was incorrect to think that a shared house would not be eligible for this but in any case I guess it doesn't matter if I have a say in it happening.
The whole licencee situation is not exactly detailed and as I understand its a different type of arrangement to a normal tenancy which ultimately has the same result from a landlords perspective (rent paid etc) but also allows a tenant to move out while someone else covers their existing obligations under the tenancy agreement.
Key point from the above is that sub-letting/assignment and a licencee agreement are 2 very different different things. I am clearish on the former but not the latter, hence 2 different questions.
