Removing One Tenant from a Lease in Ontario

Removing One Tenant from a Lease

Question:

If a couple separates while in a lease (both have signed for the year) and one person leaves, can that person have their name taken off the lease (assuming all parties agree)? Is there an OREA form?

Answer:

The closest form would be OREA Form 405 (Amendment to Lease). It should be combined with the Mutual Release Form. The departing party and the continuing parties need to release one another. This includes the two Tenants.

There is no Form under the Residential Tenancies Act as administered by the Landlord and Tenant Board for this.
