So I'm finally get enough courage to leave my controlling/abusive DF, I'm going to look at a new rental day.
Problem is my name is listed on the agreement for this property. I don't want to have my name on two agreements at one time.
Is it hard to get my name off? They're not losing any income, cos DF is staying on here.
Problem is DF has lost the plot and refuses to help me in anyway and refuses to sign anything so if they require him to sign it he won't..
I can't afford both rents, actually I can't afford this house at all as it's more than my wage
Any advice? I know I should just ring them, but this whole situation is so so hard I don't want anymore bad news if they tell me my name has to stay

No your name does not have to stay. Years ago I needed my name removed from a shared rental agreement. I went and saw the landlord in person (it was a private rental) and told them my situation, the agreed to having my name removed, the remaining tenants were then the sole renters. I would ring the Residential Tenancies Tribunal in your state and ask them how you would go about doing this. Good luck! You don't have to feel stuck, there are ways to get out of this

When I moved in with DP his ex was still listed on the lease. All she had to do was sign something to be removed. DP was still on the lease paying rent so it all turned out fine for her.
Good on u for having the courage to leave! Xx

I went through this same thing, it is very easy to remove your name just go & see your property manager & explain your situation, they will then remove you & send him a new lease with just his name if he doesn't sign it its his problem & makes no difference to you.
Also well done on having the courage to leave, I haven't looked back since & i wish you all the best.

Oh I so hope it goes smoothly

I hope it is as easy as signing a form for you, take care, thinking of you, it's a very daunting thing 'getting out' You will find strength you never knew you had.
All the best

Congratulations on having the courage to leave.
I think the pp's have said what to do. Just go see your property manager and they should take care if everything.

Good on you for leaving
My situation was slightly different but myself and twin DD's were kicked out by ex.
I went to my RE immediately, my LL also happened to be business owner and PM. I explained the situation and they were fantastic.
They removed me from the lease and helped find another property (that wasn't listed with them) and gave me great references.
Fingers crossed you get it sorted immediately.

I got my name off a lease (in QLD). The ex had to sign the form though.
Have you got a current DVO?
04-07-2013 09:31 #10
How do I know it's current? About 6 months ago, I'm sure he got one. He went to court etc, but I didn't go. Ill have to dig the letters out from home and see if it was actually a DVO... I think it was
Does that help me?
