This week they told me they are divorcing and gave me the written termination needed to terminate their lease when it expires next month. Both also requested that the deposit be reimbursed directly to them. Who should I check out to if both names are on the lease? No no. The mere discussion of the notice and the provision of the rental request do not trigger an intermediary relationship. However, if the potential tenant requires you to represent them in the lease negotiation process, you must obtain their written consent for your broker to act as an intermediary. To do this, you can use the buyer-tenant replacement contract (TAR 1501). Next, you must follow the steps necessary for an intermediary relationship, which apply to both sales transactions and leasing. Paragraph 4A shall apply to the initial term of the lease. .
