I hope someone can help me with this one…
I am renting a place. I thumb-printed the lease. The lease is up in March.
I want to move into a bigger place, in this same building at the end of this month.
I have 2 friends in Canada who are coming at the end of this month on 60 day visitor visas. They are planning to stay in Taiwan for a few years teaching English legally.
I want to give my friends this appartment. And move into a bigger one. I want them to take over the lease, not officially because they wont have a ARCs. They can continue paying the rent and bills and pay me the deposits.
Obviously I’d have to tell the landlord because the gossip would get out.
What legal rights do I have? Can the landlord say, nah you can’t leave your lease? Even though it is staying in my name?
How should I go about telling her? What’s the best Chinese way to give her face and make her feel like she is coming out the winner?
Looking for legal and cultural advice on this one!
